The Harmen Kröger organ of St. Mary’s Church in Celle, Lower Saxony, dates from 1653, and is witness to the changing musical requirements placed on the instrument from its first construction into the early 20th century. Restored in 1999 to its original state by Australian organ builder, Rowan West, it provides an authentic voice for the music of Northern German masters from Scheidemann through to Buxtehude and Bach. Brett Leighton, one of Europe’s leading organists specializing in authentic instruments of the 17th and 18th centuries provides a comprehensive portrait of the German organ of this period. - Musica Omnia
