Product Description

On the Spanish island of Menorca, St. Mary’s Church in the town of Mahón has a two-century tradition of fine music supported by a large (3m, 52 stops) and very important historic organ built in 1810 by Kyburz. The musical style has been to borrow great operatic tunes and use them for church, and there is even a hand-written book of organ music in the style dating from the 19th century. Eric Lebrun and Marie-Ange Leurent play the Kyburz organ in its fine acoustics.
