Composer: Liardon, Gaël
Sample Producer: Sonus Paradisi
Sample Set: Groningen, St. Martini
Software: Hauptwerk IV
Genre: Baroque style
Liardon wrote some beautiful preludes to "Nun komm der Heiden Heiland". And the one I play hear is perhaps one of his best. This composition is rendered as a manualiter piece (with just two staves and no indication pedals should be used). It is of course nevertheless to play the bass line with the pedals, the two middels voices with the left hand, and the choral melody with a solo registration with the right hand. Only in bar 21 the middle voices are a bit too far apart for me and my small hands to play comfortable, so I cheat a bit there to create the illusion that I do play the notes.

For this performance I use only three stops of the demo sample set of the Schnitger organ in the Martinikerk in Groningen. The fine details in the organ sound and the superb sense of the churche's space in the sample set is very well audible in this way. And the principal I use hear as a solo stop is one of the most beautiful I've ever heard.

The recording is with the Diffuse and Rear channels, with a bit of Direct (30/128) mixed in.
