Composer: Louis Couperin (mostly)
Sample Producer: OrganArt Media
Sample Set: 2012 Metzler, Poblet Abbey, Spain
Software: Hauptwerk IV
Genre: Baroqueish
Some time ago one of our members, BaroqueDMX, reflected on how the Tiento the Falsa by Bruna would have sounded on the Metzler flutes. Good question.
So Jim: this is for you!

Not wanting to re-upload the Tiento, I decided to put a piece together to show off (most of) the flutes of the Poblet Metzler.
Two very small pieces, a kind of folk tunes, by Louis Couperin seemed suitable to play around with a bit.

Perhaps Louis would roll over in his grave listening to this, that's his problem, but the flutes sound marvelous and the differences between the divisions are clearly audible.

Here are the registrations of the recording:

Branle de Basque 1st time:
HW Holzflöte 4 repeats on:
RW Rohrflöte 4

Branle de Basque 2nd time:

Pastorella in 2 parts // every part repeated on:

So three times each part (!)
