Vom Himmel Hoch ~ Sigfrid Karg-Elert.
A quiet start, showcasing the Great Hohl Flöte 8, accompanied by Swell strings and 4ft Flauto Traverso. This is then contrasted with the Choir flutes with Tremulant added. From the half-way point, there is a build up from quiet Swell 16+8+4 to full organ.
Freu Dich Sehr, O meine Seele ~ Sigfrid Karg-Elert.
Various Swell combinations are heard, including strings and 8 and 4 foot flutes. The Choir Clarinette finishes the piece.
Nun Danket Alle Gott ~ Sigfrid Karg-Elert.
The brilliance of the Great Mixtur plays a prominent part in this well known piece.
Gott des Himmels und der Erden ~ Sigfrid Karg-Elert.
A showcase for the Swell Oboe, coupled variously to the Great Gedact and Choir flutes.
Choral No.3 - Cèsar Franck.
The Swell Horn is a prominent chorus reed in the early chorale-like passages, contrasting with Swell 8+4 principals coupled to the Choir flutes in the quicker sections. At 4’25” the solo melody is taken by the Swell Oboe and Gamba, accompanied by the two Choir 8 foot flues. Then, at 6’15 the Swell Gamba and Celeste are heard in partnership with the Great Hohl Flöte 8. This then builds to a climax involving all stops apart from the Great Mixtur.
Sonata IV, Andante religioso and Allegretto ~ Felix Mendelssohn.
The Andante offers another chance to enjoy the Swell, Great and Choir softer 8 foot colours in various combinations. The Allegretto features the uncoupled Great Gedact in the semi-quaver line, accompanying firstly the Choir Clarinette and then the Swell Oboe and Gamba in combination. Finally, at 2’17” the Choir Harmonica and Lieblich Gedact are heard.
Trumpet Tune ~ John Stanley.
This demo makes use of the Enhanced set additions by boosting the volume and brightening the tone of the Trompete on the Choir. For the accompaniment, the Swell 8 ft Flauto Traverso and 4ft Octave are coupled to the Great 8+4 ft Principals an octave higher to give a 2 foot effect. As is often the case with this organ, Great to Pedal is not required: a good pedal line is obtained with the Violon 16, Subbass 16, Octave 8 and Bass Flöte 8 along with Swell to Pedal.
32 STOP SAMPLE SET DEMOS
For each recording the Enhanced sample set has been used, although the enhancements (eg octave couplers) used only sparingly. The divisional levels (ie Great, Swell, Choir and Pedal) have been kept at the default 0dB throughout.
