Product Description

This volume tours organs of Valais canton, visiting Münster, Visperterminen, Ernen and Reckingen. All four organs date from the 17th or 18th century and have been restored to their original form. The 36-page booklet gives history of the organs and the music played plus numerous color photos of the churches, their organs, and the paintings and sculpture with which they are adorned. Albert Bolliger plays compositions by musicians of approximately the same time period.
