This Bruhns E minor is superb - very thrilling playing and dramatic playing, wonderfully spicy unequal temperament

By: Brian on Dec, 14 2011

A great collection and the organ is especially interesting too, being a modern scientific reconstruction of a large North German Baroque city organ from around 1700. I'd say that worked out exceptionally well!

Heh. I'm so impressed I've bought the CD.

Plenty of momentum and nicely lively, with a very rich, colourful reed chorus. Must be quite an exciting experience hearing this instrument in the flesh.

Great stuff - very Baroque, very musical and very Christmassy. Excellent registrations.

Di vero effetto!!! Bella!!!

A most delightful and peaceful music that would help cut down on the Advent-Christmastide stress so plentiful in our present day. I must find this music and learn it well ahead of the next GO AROUND! Thank you, Hans.

An excellent opportunity to hear this piece played stunningly well on an organ tuned in meantone with pure thirds, as would likely have been familiar to Bruhns. This adds a rich, harmonious "bite" which is a real surprise and pleasure for ears more attuned to equal temperament.

Very simple structure with no melody as such - just a sense of movement and shifting layers - yet strangely moving and peaceful.

"Here I am alone with silence. I have discovered that it is enough when a single note is beautifully played. This note, or a silent beat, or a moment of silence comfort me." - Arvo Part

Thank you Jaqbiec, that expresses it perfectly.

Beautiful; marvelous counterbalancing throughout of well-chosen stops. (plus an insane flock of birds at the end)

By: Tromba on Nov, 14 2017

Yes, insane does come to mind.

Just perfect in every way: registration, tempo and scale.

Sounds joyful!

Excellent tempo! My comments would echo those above. You are able to hear every nuance that was intended.
