Sample Set: 2012 Metzler, Poblet Abbey, Spain
Software: Hauptwerk IV
Genre: Baroque
As the Metzler Poblet has beautiful Grand Jeux on all three manuals, I thought I’d upload the Louis Couperin g-moll Chaconne once more.

A bit curious of how many time this well-known piece would have been uploaded to the concert hall I checked the entries and came up with the following (hope I got them all):

Agnus_Dei (Hereford)

Sanden (Ducroquet-CavailleColl)

162_Ranks (Roever-Ditfurt:

162_Ranks (Cembalo Mietke)

EdoL (St. Omer)

EdoL (Arlesheim)

buluca (St. Michaelskerk, Zwolle)

buluca (Dom Bedos organ model)

AntoniScott (Forcalquier)

AntoniScott (Caen)

And now on the Poblet Metzler.
I recommend them all, if only to compare the organs.

All recordings are good, but two are notable:

Probably the Chaconne was written for the harpsichord, so 162_Ranks harpsichord version is a worthwhile listen to.

Agnus_Dei ’s version is interesting, because he played it on an organ not exactly made for Couperin to say the least, in a transcription by Joseph Bonnet, in such a personal way, that it is a total listening-must!
