Georg Trexler: Toccata on the "Amen and Gloria" from Bruckner's Mass No. 2
Originally a student of economics at the University of Leipzig, he switched to music under the influence of Karl Straube, and became a choirmaster and organist at the St. Trinitatis church in Leipzig in 1930, continuing his work there for forty years.
He started teaching organ and conducting at the conservatory in 1935; he was drafted as a soldier in 1940, and ended the war as a US prisoner of war, before returning to Leipzig and the university.
Pope Paul VI awarded him the Order of St. Sylvester in 1967 for his contributions to Catholic music.
His Toccata for Organ was recorded by Thomas Sauer on the Organ of St. Hedwig's Cathedral in Berlin in 1996 for the Ars Musici label.
