Notes and Editorial Reviews


Once again MDG has scored with an outstanding CD of organ music. Continuing its practice of exploring the instruments of a particular locale, this one is devoted to the northern part of Germany, called Schleswig-Holstein. Also, in accordance with the parameters set for this series, only music of composers known to have lived and played in the area is featured. There are some real discoveries here, such as the elaborate, varied Te Deum by Jakob Kortkamp, who was a pupil of Jakob Praetorius in Hamburg, and a florid, somewhat pastoral chorale prelude on the familiar "Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott" by Christian Flor, a native of Neukirchen, Holstein, who played at St Mary's Church in

Of course, the best known composer of the era, and region, was Dietrich Buxtehude, who is represented by two compositions, the most impressive being a set of variations on the hymn tune "Nun lob, mein Seel, den Herren", better known to most American Protestants as "the Doxology". Organist Wolfgang Baumgratz skillfully registers each of six authentic instruments and performs with sure-footed rhythm and musicianship. The full bodied recording is a model of clarity.

The booklet annotation deserves special mention. There is a gorgeous color photograph of each organ case, displaying its elaborate structure and ornate carvings, accompanied by a full list of stops. Moreover, there is a chart whereby the listener can be informed as to exactly which stops and combinations are used for each individual piece. Unfortunately, the text description that describes each instrument is presented only in German, but the basic, and very informative, notes on the music and composers are translated into English.
