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...

Uploaded by: giwro (06/30/12)
Composer: Daniel-Lesur
Sample Producer: Sonus Paradisi
Sample Set: Caen - St. Etienne Cavaillé Coll
Software: Hauptwerk
Genre: Modern
This is the famous vesper hymn of the feast of the Immaculate Conception. (probably along with Adoro te the best known of this set).

This jaunty setting utilizes contrastin flutes at various pitches, melody is in the Ped. at 4'

It is amazing how playing this literature on the sounds and aesthetic of Cavaille-Coll suddenly causes it to come alive (the reverberant building doesn't hurt, either!)

I hope you all have enjoyed this journey through the first set of these hymnes - I hope to do the remainder at some point
Performance: Live
