Composer: Friedrich Wilhelm Zachau (1663 – 1712) & Samuel Scheidt (1587 – 1654)
Sample Producer: Sonus Paradisi
Sample Set: Zwolle, St. Michael
Software: Hauptwerk IV
Genre: Baroque
I made a combination of two related compositions:
- the Choralvorspiel on Christ lag in Todesbanden by Friedrich Wilhelm Zachau (1663 – 1712) and
- a Choral setting by Samuel Scheidt (1587 – 1654).

Scheidt and Zachau were German composers and organists and worked both in Halle (and elsewhere), but not at the same time, as you'll understand.

More info about these composers:

Played on the Zwolle Schnitger, with rich plenum registrations (reeds included).
Tuning: Meantone SixthComma (because of the early baroque character).

Performance: Live
Recorded in: Stereo
