Description:
I found some interesting pieces by Johann Georg Herzog (1822 - 1909) in his Opus 11 "Achtzehn Orgelstuecke".

I can't find much information about this composer.

Born in Hummendorf, near Kronach, 5 Aug 1822; died in Munich, 3 Feb 1909. German organist and composer. He was educated at Altdorf and followed his career first in Munich, where in 1843 he became organist and in 1848 Kantor at the Evangelical church. From 1850 he also taught the organ at the conservatory: Rheinberger was one of his pupils.

I hope you'll like these pieces, played on the Armley Schulze. I think they fit very well on this instrument.

*** This is number 14 "Lento". A serious and impressive piece, played with a rather dark registration. Switching between Great, Choir and Swell to add some dynamics (not indicated by the composer). The theme appears 'mirrored' in the 32' pedal part. A dark and forte ending concludes this dramatic composition.

I hope you'll enjoy! :-)
