Pronkjuwelen in Stad en Ommeland: The Historic Organs of the Province of Groningen
A Magnificent Multi-Media Production!

Five CDs; a lavish book rich with color photos and text in English, Dutch, and German; and a fine DVD with English and German subtitles!

The Netherlands city of Groningen and the surrounding Ommeland are home to a treasured collection of organs, many dating from the 1500’s to 1800. In this spectacular multi-media presentation, the restored organ of Groningen’s MartiniKerk provides the lens for viewing and the starting point for touring the area organs. Several interviews with Cor Edskes, at 85 a robust and fascinating historian of the organs of northern Europe and consultant to the Dutch government and many distinguished builders, gives the background of these treasures. In five CDs, Sietze de Vries plays on each of the organs visited, providing stoplists and detailed registrations at each venue. Full color photos embellish the large format, 108-page book enclosed in the slipcase of this valuable set.
