1699 Stark organ ready for ordering

PostFri Oct 10, 2003 3:40 am

Zlata Koruna's 20 speaking stops baroque organ (1699) is now ready for ordering. You may visit its pages at www.clavmon.cz/sonus
Abraham Stark of Loket - the organbuilder - is the founder and the most prominent person of so called Czech Loket organ school. The organ is relatively well preserved and maintained.
The sound of the organ is very bright and even pungent as the intonation of baroque stops suggest. The level of revertebration of the church hall is enormous. The church is said to be the third largest in the republic.

Muffat Demo

PostTue Jan 13, 2004 8:03 am

I have added one more demo composition: lovely Muffat's Toccata from Apparatus Musico-organisticus. It is currently my most beloved piece of music. As the date of composition is very close to the year when the organ was built and together with the fact that Muffat lived in Prague for certain time of his life it is very likely that the Toccata no 8 used to sound on the real organ at the beginning of the 18th century! So, it is the kind of music which was the organ built for.
