Tarquinio Merula (1595-1665) was a foremost member of the Venetian School, active as a composer of a substantial vocal oeuvre and instrumental music for keyboard.

This new recording contains the complete works for organ by Merula, consisting of Toccatas, Canzones, Capriccio and three Intonazione Cromatica. Keywords of Merula’s innovative style are chromatiscm and a great expressive intensity.

Enrico Viccardi, one of Italy’s most venerable and respected organists, plays the historic Chiappani organ, built in 1647.

The booklet contains extensive liner notes on the music written by the artist, the organ specifications and photo, plus an artist biography.
