Composer: Reincken, Johann Adam
Sample Producer: Milan Digital Audio
Sample Set: Kampen, Bovenkerk Hinsz/F.C. Schnitger
Software: Hauptwerk IV
Genre: Baroque
The precedent Choral is from Samuel Scheidt‘s »Görlitzer Orgeltabulatur«.

I love the Reincken composition very much, and it was one of my first recordings for the Contrebombarde Concert Hall in 2012.

This piece has some splendid features:
- a very noble »Melancholia«,
- some heroic moments which show the passed glory of the old Jerusalem,
- the perhaps most beuatifull final of a North German Baroque Choral prelude.

I played the Reincken piece last Sunday in a recital.
So I recorded it twice two days before (two separated recordings, which follow the profils of the Kampen and the Stade organ) for to see, what these organs can do for this music.

I prefer the Kampen recording for Reincken.
But both organs have merrits: Kampen with the large sound and the long reverb, Stade with the fine coulors of the stops.
Performance: Live
Recorded in: Stereo
