Usually despatched in 3 - 4 working days.
A selection of both vibrant and meditative organ music for Christmas, stretching from modest miniatures to more formal compositions.Apart from their festive character, all the works on this disc were written between the late 18th and early 19th centuries and stem from an area encompassing southern Germany, Austria, Bohemia and Croatia. All composers represented here are firmly rooted in the Catholic church music tradition of these regions. The historical organ in this famous Abbey in the Swiss Canton of Aargau is an important musical monument, enjoying great international esteem. Johannes Strobl has performed as a soloist and ensemble musician in many countries. He also appears with increasing frequency as conductor of Cappella Murensis, a professional vocal ensemble which found its home in the Abbey Church at Muri in 2002.
