AEOLUS produces a new recording with Léon Berben at the historic Scherer organ in St.Mary's church, Lemgo (Germany)
In the second week of April this year, AEOLUS recording producer Christoph Martin Frommen travelled to the city of Lemgo (Germany) to record the historic Scherer organ (built in 1613) in the St.Mary's church.
AEOLUS artist Léon Berben recorded here the second volume of two of Hieronymus Praetorius' organ music, the father of northern german organ tradition. For this recording we have selected two historical instruments from the composer's lifetime (1560-1629).
As already for the Weckmann double SACD album, AEOLUS sound engineer Christoph Martin Frommen used nine DPA 4006 microphones (omni) for this recording, which was done in stereo and multichannel surround (5.1).
The recording is scheduled to be released as double SACD in autumn this year.
