Aargauer Orgelmusik im 20. Jahrhundert

Aargauer Orgelmusik im 20. Jahrhundert

On 25 April 1907, in Brugg (Canton Aargau), the Catholic and Protestant Church Music Associations of Aargau were founded - on the same day, but at different venues. It was in order to celebrate the 100th anniversary of this event in April 2007 that it was decided to record organ works by Aargau composers from the last hundred years. One criterion for the selection was that the composer must eit...

François Delor au nouvel orgue du Victoria Hall à Genève

In 1984, the Victoria Hall was badly damaged by arson, and its organ entirely destroyed. Shortly after this catastrophe, the City of Geneva took the brave decision to restore the Hall to its original 1894 decoration, and to reconstruct the organ. This task was perfectly carried out by the Dutch van den Heuvel Brothers, who built a magnificent neo-symphonic organ of four manuals and 71 stops. B...

aus der Kathedrale St. Gallen

Various composers

Visio Stephani

In his narrative of the experiences of the early Christians, St Luke the Evangelist tells in the Acts of the Apostles of the fate of Stephen. The young community of Christians elected him to be their deacon, in order better to fulfil their social tasks. As a devout man 'full of mercy and strength', he is also said to have performed 'signs and miracles' (Acts 6,8). In the writings of the early C...

Das Orgelwerk

The young Willy Burkhard's receptiveness for the religious world became evident at an early age. In his entire oeuvre it was to be reflected in the large number of sacred works, in the careful, personal choice of texts, and the importance allotted to the Protestant hymn. In this connection it should be noted that, although many of Burkhard's works were inspired by religion, he did not write a g...
