Notes & Reviews:

The Arp Schnitger organ in St. Ludger's Church in Norden numbers among the most important baroque instruments of its kind and has remained practically unchanged over the centuries. In addition, the organ's unique and complex resonance into various church spaces makes every recording a special challenge. On what is now their third SACD Agnes Luchterhandt and Thiemo Janssen present "their instrument" with a highly appealing and representative program sequence quite literally showing the instrument from all its best sides. They obtain superb support from the outstanding room-related 2+2+2 reproduction enabling the instrument and the space to be experienced in genuine three-dimensional sound.

But the first surprise occurs right at the beginning of the SACD. "Brande champan- je," a dance song from the sixteenth century, is performed true to the original in a version for two organists with percussion. The original drum stop is no longer extant on today's organ; a Calcant whose work today is done by the organ motor substitutes for it.
