The organ is a new one. But made after the principles of the Northern style German organs, as known to the composers on this disc. Did they succeed? Yes, from all what I have heard of original instruments, this comes really very close, and if no one would have told me, I might not have heard the difference. A tremendous job and so successfully done. The sound is exactly as I expected, full with just enough warmth, detailed, clear, and when needed, punch in abundance. This is my first confrontation with Ablitzer, but he may stay, for he is a gifted organist with a very poetic strain in his performance, and warmth in his approach, never losing sight of of the multitude of important details. Just listen to Georg Böhm's Partita sur le Choral-Ach wie nichtig, ach wie Flüchtig- such a poise, and a steady but calmly flowing line. But also Dietrich Buxtehude,-In Dulci Jubilo and the Praeludium in g- made quite a impression on me. Thumbs up then. I will seek more of this organist.
It is well recorded, would have liked a bit more openness in the higher registers, but these are minor quibbles.
