The Pope Benedict Organ - Festival 2006

Series Chromart Classics

This CD presents the first recording of the new Pope Benedict Organ, which was built in 2006 by the Swiss organ- building firm Mathis. The recording took place in September/October 2006, during the week of celebrations surrounding the consecration of the new Instrument by Pope Benedict XVI. Leading artists selected and presented works which demonstrate the organ’s wide range of registration possibilities, including excellent organ improvisation and gregorian chant.
Extensive details regarding the planning and building of the organ are included in the accompanying booklet (24 p.), and some excellent photos of the instrument, too.
The accompanying booklet is in four languages and presents further information about the organist, the works and the instrument itself, together with a range of photographs.
