It's all about the music, dude! Sit down, relax and listen to some tunes.

Sorry for the late reply - learsfool nailed the answer

I first heard "Ich ruf zu dir" in the 70's as part of the soundtrack in the movie, "Solaris". It's heard in both its organ original and later with some instrumental embellishments. My wife and I both refer to the chorale prelude now as "Theme from 'Solaris'". ;-)

I can vouch for a couple of recordings of the Busoni transcription: one with Nicolai Demekenko on Hyperion and one with Kevin Oldham on VAI - the Oldham recording has exceptionally clear textures like no other performance, and his approach works well in this particular transciption, but he has some other performances on that CD where he sacrifices drama for the sake of beauty of tone and clarity of texture - not every listener will like that trade-off, but for me, the textures are so beautifully clear, that it's almost worth it to lose some of the drama.
