Thomas Heywood The Two Organs of Kyllburg Old Abbey Germany
The Two Organs, one baroque - one romantic, at either end of the beautiful and resonant 13th-century Old Abbey, feature on this glorious recording.
The program continues the 'double' theme. The Two Organs are heard in pairs of transcriptions, and pairs of original works, by some of the leading lights of the golden age of the Concert Organ.
The instruments. The acoustic. The repertoire. The performer.
