In the 1497 “Old Church” in the city of Coswig, Germany, Kristian Wegscheider has restored an organ of an unknown builder most likely dating to the end of the 17th century, but certainly in its present location since 1735. The 1998 restoration of the organ and its carved and painted case presents an example of an organ typical of a Saxon village church of its era.
Sebastian Knebel plays music of the 17th century on the Coswig organ and also the harpsichord, revisiting sounds familiar to Lutheran musicians of the Dresden court.
