Augustine's Lorris and Solignac samplesets


*
Dear all,

When I downloaded, installed and opened the historic (and the oldest??) French Lorris organ from Augustine's Virtual Organs, I discovered that the "Organ Information" file embedded in the sampleset installation was wrong: it was the information file for the Solignac sampleset.

So, I went to work and "made up my own" Organ Information file and fitted it into the sampleset, making sure to give credit where due to Augustine's Virtual Organs and Mr Augustine Takats.

I sent Augustine a copy of the "mini website" created for the Lorris organ, which included the colorful and wonderful history of the town, the Abbey, the Abbey church and the organ. He was impressed with my work and created a PATCH update for the Lorris sampleset so others can also install the new organ information files into the installed sampleset.

Because I already had begun looking for online information about the very, very old town of Solignac and its Abbey, I couldn't help myself and also made a "mini website" for the Organ Information for the Solignac (original and extended) sampleset, and sent that to Augustine.

That second information package also quickly became a PATCH update for the Solignac sampleset.

ANYONE can now download those 2 patches from the website of Augustine's Virtual Organs.

Go RIGHT TO THE BOTTOM of the page to download and install the patches to your Hauptwerk computer - at the bottom of BOTH pages the patches are available:

The 1501 French Lorris organ - Église Notre-Dame de Lorris

https://hauptwerk-augustine.info/Lorris.php

The early 17th Century Solignac organ - Benedictine Abbey of Solignac

https://hauptwerk-augustine.info/Solgnac_sample.php

My best wishes, and my (early) wish to all of you for a wonderful Easter 2021!

The Contrebombarde website gets a bit confused about hyperlinks sometimes. Here are the two pages again - trying a "shorter link" trick this time:

The 1501 French Lorris organ - Église Notre-Dame de Lorris

The early 17th Century Solignac organ - Benedictine Abbey of Solignac
