Product Description

The difficult acoustic of Mainz’ Cathedral led to the construction by Kemper in 1965 of an organ of 6 manuals, 113 stops and 7928 pipes disposed in three parts to enable its effective use. Cathedral organist Albert Schönberger demonstrates the massive forces using composed works by Messiaen, Bauersachs and Vierne and improvises on the tune Ich will dich lieben, meine Stärke.

MESSIAEN: Apparition de l’Eglise Eternelle
BAUERSACHS: Die Bergpredigt, Op. 36
VIERNE: Carillon de Westminster
SCHÖNBERGER: Improvisation on Ich will dich lieben, meine Stärke
