Notes & Reviews:

Music and liturgy form an important unity, and since Gothic times the organ has been the symbol of liturgical music, bound together with liturgical celebration. Music for the organ has been and still is composed for church services, as evidenced by the mostly 20th century program on this SACD. The fascination which emanated from the organ 's majestic, solemn, opulent sound was intended to confirm believers in their piety, and rarely did this effect fail to take place. For each of these composers, their individual religious beliefs helped frame their approach to the compositions on this disc. For example, Kurt Hessenberg was one of the most important representatives of Evangelical church music of the 20th century. The soloist Bernhard Leonardy is Cantor of the Basilica St. Johann and was a student of both Paul Schneider and Daniel Roth. He is considered a master of improvisation and it is fitting that this disc conclude with his masterful free-form work. In addition, the organ itself is noted for the character differentiation and spatial separation of its different components, making this an ideal SACD surround-sound experience.
