Notes & Reviews:

This CD presents the first recording of the new Pope Benedict Organ, which was built in 2006 by the Swiss organ building firm Mathis. The recording took place in September/October 2006, during the week of celebrations surrounding the consecration of the new Instrument by Pope Benedict XVI.

American Record Guide, September/October 2013
This recording, made in 2006, is a showcase for the organ built that year by the Swiss firm of Mathis for the Collegiate Church of Our Lady of the Old Chapel in Regensburg. The church's history goes back to the 9th Century; it was founded as a royal chapel around 875 by King Ludwig der Deutsche. This recording was made in connection with the dedicatory festival held that year. The instrument is a generously proportioned organ of two manuals and 40 stops.
