Playing: Dominique Dantand
This is a small baroque organ of the Naxxar parish church (Malta). The organ was built in 1775 by Santucci, a Sicilian master. In 1899 it was reconstructed by Giuseppe Bergomi, and in 2001 reconstructed by Robert Buhagiar, close to its original state.
The recording was made by Dr. Mark Bugeja in 2012. This recording is part of a project presenting Maltese Historic Organs from which Balzan and Fontana organs were made by M. Bugeja and Panos K. Ghekas. This work was interrupted by Panos's death in 2015.
One month ago I was asked to prepare the sample. This is the beta version. The final version is expected to be ready in a few weeks.
