Today Pipeloops releases the new Hauptwerk sample set of the fantastic Hendrik Ahrend organ (2020) Regensburg, also called the 'Bach organ'. I've shared some Bach recordings on it the past weeks, but now the sample set is finished. More information can be found here: http://www.pipeloops.com//product_info.php?cPath=23&products_id=61
Although this organ is specifically designed to play Bach's entire organ oeuvre on it, of course it is very appropriate to play organ works from Bach's German contemporaries on this organ. Together with German organist Christian Brembeck I put together a program in which Bach is central, with music from contemporaries like Walther, Buxtehude, Sorge and Krebs around him.
I hope this presentation shows the versatility of this fine instrument. We show different plenum possibilities, some nice cantus firmus registrations, the nice variety of soft 8' stops, the use of toy stops and more.
Thanks to Christian Brembeck for participating in this video, playing two fine Bach works (BWV 650 & BWV 542) from memory! For more information about Christian, check his website: https://brembeck.net/
The time stamps can be found on the timeline of the video. Because of the length of this video and the audio file size limit of Contrebombarde, the quality of the audio file is bad. Therefore I recommend listening to the audio of the video.
