Coming Soon: Eisenbarth-organ, Waldkirchen, Germany

Postby tf11972 » Fri Apr 14, 2017 10:59 am

Christoph Schmitz and I are proud to announce our first sample set: The Eisenbarth-organ in the Saint Peter and Paul's church in Waldkirchen, Germany. This organ with 62 Stops on four manuals and pedal was built 2007 with many revoiced pipes from the decessor instruments. It consists of the main organ (III/51) and the choir organ (I/11), playable from the 4th manual of the main organ.
The specification of this organ was developed by the organist of Saint Peter and Paul, Max Poeschl, and the cathedral organist in Passau, Ludwig Ruckdeschel, the master of the world's largest cathedral organ in Passau (V/233), which was also built by Eisenbarth from 1978 until 1994.
The organ in Waldkirchen contains a huge amount of colourful foundation stops and delightful reeds (e.g. a full reed chorus in the swell division). Although the concept is very versatile, the organ is especially suited for the french romantic and modern music.

For further information please have a look at the organ's website

and Christoph Schmitz's website (he has done the ODF-programming and the wonderful graphics)

We now have started the betatest, so you will hear more sound demonstrations on Contrebombarde soon. And within a short time we will provide a free test version with 11 stops on the Forestpipes-website.

Congratulations on your first sample-set!

I think some people in UK might respectfully disagree with this:
tf11972 wrote:...the world's largest cathedral organ in Passau (5/233)

This is five separate organs (albeit playable from one console), and the main organ has 123 registers.
Liverpool Anglican Cathedral has five manuals and 152 registers. :D

If you need any more beta-testers for Waldkirchen, please let me know.

Best wishes,
Douglas.

Although the system in Passau consists of 5 separate organs, it is well-known as the ONE cathedral organ, nevertheless. :D

Thanks for your offer, Douglas. I will think about it.
Best regards

I think it's in Colorado, there is a grove of trees, who all share the same roots; that is, their roots are all inter-grown and inter-connected, and thus forms the largest living organism in the world. Is it one tree, or many trees?

Can a choir organ and main organ, playable from the same console, be considered as ONE organ?

As soon as you try to capture things in a definition, the world becomes very strange...

An organ is a few hundreds or thousands of instruments under the hands of a single player.

Or... under the hands of the conductor, fifty players in an orchestra become a single instrument.
