Composer: Buxtehude, Dieterich
Sample Set: Luedingworth, Arp Schnitger organ 1682-3
Software: Hauptwerk V
Genre: Baroque
So this series of Buxtehude which started at Altenbruch has found the opportunity to move a few metres down the road, literally. For those of you not familiar with the geography, Altenbruch is a small village on the German coast, Luedingworth is an even smaller village just outside Altenbruch. These 2 tiny neighbouring communities have between them 2 of the oldest and best preserved instruments to be found anywhere, and, at 3 manuals and 35 stops each, fairly big as well. Although in size and design they look similar, their sound is completely different. Altenbruch is mild, sparkling, brilliant, and has a mild unequal temperament. Luedingworth is more forceful, rugged, characterful, with a meantone temperament (a real one, not a modified one), and a drier acoustic. Luedingworth is one of the largest and unaltered Arp Schnitger organs, dating from 1683, though it includes much pipework from an organ by Antonius Wilde completed 85 years earlier. This is a spendid new sample set, if you are a hard core German Renaissance and/or Baroque fan you will love it. However if you like your organs compromising, versatile, and swimming in reverb, this is not the sample set for you.
