Organo di Padre Davide da Bergamo

Postby zurek » Sun Dec 02, 2018 5:08 am

I have the pleasure to introduce a sample set of St. Maria in Campagna organ, Piacenza, Italy. The organ was built by Serassi brothers under the supervision of the famous virtuoso Padre Davide who was the organist of the church. It is one of the finest examples of this special organ style. The organ was built between 1825-1838.

The original instrument consists of 2 manuals and a pedal, alltogether 57 sounding stops. In addition to the usual Italian Pleno and the necessary orchestral and solo registers, Padre Davide wanted to include a unique special effect: the bells. These are real bells (an octave) which can be played in different ways, in the manuals or with the pedal.

The sample set can be used in Hauptwerk version 4.2 and higher, the Advanced version is necessary due to the size of the virtual instrument. It is available in a surround (6-channels) format. The front-direct channels can be used alone to form a semi-dry variant of the sample set, especially when releases truncated in Hauptwerk.

The sample set is offered encrypted, protected by the Hauptwerk dongle.

More details, including the specification and audio demo samples of the instrument may be found on the Sonus Paradisi web pages.

The demo sample set is for free download from the Sonus Paradisi web.

I found the score for the first demo from a book of seven pieces that you can download at http://imslp.org. Just browse the composers and you'll find it. You'll find some of the Padre Davide scores there as well.

Hi Sesquialtera, The music of Padre Davide da Bergamo can be found on the internet with great difficulty. This is due to the fact that his works are protected by copyrigth and sold by publishers at a high price. Anyway I created a Facebook group called "La musica di Padre Davide da " where I periodically publish files in PDF format of his music. It is all rare material, the result of countless researches in the archives of the basilica in S. Maria in Campagna and in libraries of prestigious Italian music conservatories. If you are interested, search the group on facebook and sign up. Since the group is closed, you can only access it after approval.
