Furtwängler & Hammer Imperial Cathedral Königslutter - A Kingly Instrument for a Royal Worship Space

Furtwängler & Hammer, No. 286 - A Masterpiece Saved!!!The grand organ in the Kaiserdom,&nb...

Composer: Anonymous (Espana)
Sample Set: Aragonese Procession Organ
Software: Hauptwerk
Genre: Medieval and Renaissance
Achenpigeon, one of the concert hall members, drew my attention to this very special instrument in the Music Museum in Barcelona. Many thanks for that tip!

It is a portable procession organ and the recording of it was done by Pere Casulleras in Hauptwerk 1.
The present sample set was recorded on the original instrument at the Museu de la Música de Barcelona.

As achenpigeon pointed out, the sound is very special and clear, despite the early version of the software.
So I decided to do a few recordings on it just to show the other concert hall members what it is like.

The sampleset is freely downloadable on the link:
There are also more information on and a few pictures of this special instrument.

Pitch = 440
Meantone 2/7 comma.

The four recordings are:

– Versillo de Sexto Tono (1st Bordo 4, repeated + Quinzena)
– Versillo de Tercer Tono para el Magnificat
– Cuarto Intermedio para los Kyries de Segundo Tono
– Tiento de Segundo Tono

The recording is very dry, so I added the reverberation of a small room with a convolution reverb program.
