Information: About bundles

A bundle makes it possible to get a better price for a certain set of AEOLUS CDs.

You may have noticed that here on the AEOLUS website certain CDs and SACDs are displayed to be available as part of a "bundle". So what is a bundle? A bundle is a set of several complete AEOLUS CDs. In case you buy a bundle you pay significantly less than you would pay for the single CDs, but you get the exact same CDs, including original packaging and original booklet. 

This way we created bundles e.g. for some of our composer series, e.g. Froberger, Maleingreau, etc. Please find here all bundles on offer.

Please note that these bundles are only available here on the AEOLUS website, not elsewhere.

There have been rare CD recordings exclusively dedicated to the organ works by Flor Peeters in recent years - wrongly in our opinion ...

Therefore, our new SACD-release with Peter Van de Velde playing the symphonic Schyven Organ (1891) of Antwerp Cathedral, is dedicated to the grand organ works of this main protagonists of the Belgian organ tradition in the 20th Century.
The titular organist of the Antwerp cathedral choose a wise program across the entire compositional works by Flor Peeters, starting with the
early Symphonic Fantasy op.13 and ending with the paraphrase of Salve Regina op.123. Between the monumental works he inserts some of the beautiful Chorale preludes from op.68 to complement the program in an excellent manner.
The symphonic Pierre Schyven organ (1891) is an ideal instrument for Flor Peeters large scale works. During his lifetime the composer even premiered some of his works on this organ.
The distinctive sound of the greatest symphonic organ in Belgium was captured for this new SACD in stereo and 5.0 multichannel surround - using two independent mic setups - this the Aeolus standard... Therefore this new recording is again a must for lovers of symphonic organ sounds!
The SACD comes in an elegant 6-page DPAC with beautiful color photos. The comprehensive four-language booklet provides detailed information about Flor Peeters and includes informative comments on the works.
With this new SACD we continue our successful collaboration with Peter Van de Velde and the association "Antwerpse Kathedraalconcerten" which started back in 2004. There are four more CDs we have produced in the past, including two SACDs with organ works by the Belgian composer Paul de Maleingreau.
