    Quite nice. He speaks very clearly. I'm myself a spanish-speaker with a bit knowledge of german and understood quite a lot.

    Wonderful sound ... The Arp Schnitger organs have a unique sound all there own, much like CC's.

    I had two years of high school German, so I could pick out some of what the organist was saying, too.

    Das ist sehr gut, aber Ich verstehe nicht Deutsch. (That's very good, but I don't understand German.)

    It appears that place has virtually no reverberation. But such an organ says a lot about the craftsmanship and care that went into building it. I wonder how many of our modern wonders will still be around 250++ or so years from now.

    I wonder, too ... at least they are still being built at a steady rate.

    Wikipedia has this list of surviving Arp Schnitger organs.
