AEOLUS produces a new recording with Léon Berben at the historic organ in the St.Laurentius church, Langwarden (Germany)
In the third week of March this year, AEOLUS recording producer Christoph Martin Frommen travelled to the village of Langwarden (northern Germany) to record the historic organ (built by Hermann Kröger and Berendt Huss in 1650) in the St.Laurentius church.
AEOLUS artist Léon Berben recorded here the first volume of two of Hieronymus Praetorius' organ music, the father of northern german organ tradition. For this recording we have selected two historical instruments from the composer's lifetime (1560-1629).
As already for the Weckmann double SACD album, AEOLUS sound engineer Christoph Martin Frommen used nine DPA 4006 microphones (omni) for this recording, which was done in stereo and multichannel surround (5.1).
The recording is scheduled to be released as double SACD in autumn this year.
