The 1882 Walcker at Riga, when installed at St. Mary’s Cathedral in Riga, Latvia, was the world’s largest church organ with 124 stops on 4m. Most recently renovated by Flentrop, the organ is basically unaltered. Franz Liszt wrote the version of Nun danket heard on this disc for the inaugration of this important organ, impresively played by Fr. Dominikus Trautner.
