Description: The Imperial Cathedral in Königslutter (Germany) is one of the most important romanesque buildings in Germany. It was founded in 1135 by Emperor Lothar III as a Benedictine abbey church and burial church for himself and his family. After Lothar's death, the cathedral was completed under Henry the Lion. It is a cruciform basilica of enormous dimensions for that period, measuring about 75 m long and 18 m high.

At the end of the 19th century an extensive restoration of the church was decided. This also included a new painting of the interior of the church, as the medieval church painting had been painted over with yellow paint. The artistic paintings from this restauration are today considered an important document of the end of the 19th century.

I have to echo Jonny's comment. In addition, the clarity and vast space acoustics are extended by the versatility of this instrument, which I found to be suitable even for my arrangements in symphonic style. I'm very satisfied and happy about my decision to purchase it.

Good morning. I just heard an uploaded performance on this organ by Agnus_Dei on the Contrabombarde Concert Hall- you have produced a sample set that masterfully combines clarity of the pipe sound with the vast acoustic space that supports the organ. Bravo! I am new to the Hauptwerk “family” but hope I will be able to secure this wonderful instrument. Congratulations on a superlative effort to capture a beautiful instrument. “Jonny”
