About

Claudio Astronio: "The emotional impact I experienced during the evening recording sessions of the chorales left me feeling undecided when it came to editing the present recording. The power of each piece led me to record several versions of the same chorale almost without realizing it. I chose the takes for musical reasons of course, yet also for the connection I felt was made with the text - the primary source of inspiration for the music itelf. I chose the organ not only for the quality of its sound but also for its character - immediate and up-front yet profoundly gentle. We tend to hear external noises, such as moving air and mechanical parts, as something that goes against our standard notions of ascetically clean recorded sound, but I found they actually helped me keep an expressive hold on that subtle yet strong vein of down-to-earth humanity which I heard in this music and it is this very idea which led me to alternate the voices with the organ."
