Notes and Editorial Reviews
The new Goll organ at the Marktkirche Hannover As the queen of instruments the organ has sounded at services in the Marktkirche Hannover for over 600 years. Frequently, the church's instruments were remodelled, expanded or replaced by new organs. The history of organ building at the Marktkirche is crowned by the new Goll organ. Ulfert Smidt, organist at the Marktkirche Hannover since 1996, is the first to present the instrument, which was completed in 2009, on record. The company Orgelbau Goll built this new instrument between 2007 and 2009. For the project, the listed 1954 casing was reconstructed. Also, the Swiss organ builders re-used part of the previous instrument's pipes. With these targets in mind, the question of the instrument's sound concept could be clearly answered: the stylistic centre was to be represented by the Central and North German organ building tradition of the 18th and 19th centuries, while particularly the Choir was to reach out to earlier and the Swell to French sound ideals. This enables the new Goll organ with the combination of its sound concept and distinctive intonation to cover a large range of organ literature.
