Highly influential Northern German organ builder Arp Schnitger is buried in the Hamburg-Neuenfelde Church, and it is in this uniquely preserved sacred structure from the High Baroque that we find this instrument from his workshop, an organ with a Rückpositiv and two manuals.

Hilger Kespohl is now presenting this exquisite instrument for the first time after the magnificent restoration of this historical monument, and his programme features the music of another famous Baroque Hamburg resident: Matthias Weckmann, who like no other composer between Schütz and Bach succeeded in drawing on the immense variety of European musical styles in order to develop his very own tonal idiom.
