Notes & Reviews:

Born in 1950, Jacques van Oortmerssen has been a professor of organ at universities in Amsterdam, Goteborg, Lyon, and Helsinki, and has been a guest lecturer at other universities worldwide. His interpretations of Bach and early music have brought him widespread fame. In addition to works of old music, he has recorded pieces of his own. This CD features a live organ recital on the famous organ built 1735-1738 by Christian Mueller and Jan van Logteren in St. Bavo's Church in Holland. At the time it was the largest organ in the world, with sixty voices and thirty-two-feet pedaaltorens.
