Composer: Scheidt, Samuel
Sample Producer: Prospectum
Sample Set: Magnuskerk Anloo
Software: Hauptwerk V
Genre: Baroque
From the Tabulatura Nova (published 1624) by Samuel Scheidt (1587-1654): "Hymnus de sancto Spiritu: Veni Creator Spiritus, 3 Verse".

Played on the beautiful Radeker-Garrels organ (1718), sample set made by Prospectum.

I used these registrations:

Versus 1 (starts at 0:00)
MAN - Roerpijp 8, Spitspijp 4, Vox Humana 8

Versus 2, Choralis in Tenore (start at 3:31)
MAN - Quintadena 16, Principael 8, Octav 4
BP - Floit 4, Octav 2, Sijfloit 1 1/2
PD - Cornet 4

Versus 3, Choralis in Basso (starts at 5:39)
MAN - Quintadena 16, Principael 8, Octav 4, Quint 3, Super Octav 2, Mixtuir
BP - "full"
PD - Bardon 16, Octav 8, Basuin 18

The sound of the organ (and also this recording) is rather 'in your face', because of the minimal acoustics. The charm is (for me, that is) in the character of the stops. Maybe more interesting to play the instrument than to listen to the recordings ...?

I think there is a nice fit between this interesting repertoire (Scheidt wrote beautiful counterpoint, just listen!) and this (type of) organ.
