Padre Davide da Bergamo was one of Italy’s most famous and prolific organists and organ composers (besides being a monk). His lifespan, 1791-1863, encompassed the Romantic Era, in which organ music detached itself from purely liturgical use.

He introduced the symphonic form in his organ works, especially in his 'Sinfonias', which are substantial structures in classical/romantic style and form. This recording features the first recording of his '6 Sonatas & Sinfonias'.

Organist Marco Ruggeri chose two organs from Da Bergamo’s time for this recording - magnificent instruments which do full justice to the colours and virtuosity of Da Bergamo’s works.

Booklet contains liner notes, biography and information on the instruments.
