Oz Music

Hieronymus Praetorius stands at the beginning of the North German organ school and is an important representative of the German-Venetian school, not least with his vocal works. His organ music is particularly interesting and appealing because it has not yet undergone the development of the "Amsterdam-Hamburg Sweelinck School" and therefore many performance-practical aspects are not yet clearly outlined. This raises a number of performance-practical questions, not least concerning the choice of registrations, to which LĂ©on Berben would like to provide an answer with this recording. The choice of the two historic organs from Langwarden (1650) and Lemgo (1613) - two instruments ideally suited for 16th century music, of which there are hardly any recordings so far - complete the impression of an absolutely sound new recording.
