    Danish flavour

    http://www.rvrcd.co.uk/catalogue/bux...ehudeintro.htm

    I read this and re-read it as it has some fascinating information about Buxtehude and his contemporary organs.

    I believe that Krummhorn is of Danish origin. I think that is what he
    said a few times. I like this organ piece.

    Hi CT,

    Buxtehude ... terrific organ compositions ... I've got to get more, so thanks for the link.

    Hej Judy,
    Right On! Born Danish ... I even have the Danish flag on the wall in my home office. When I found this forum to be of Danish origin, I knew I was "home" ... have definite plans on visiting there in the next couple years - have relatives in Kobenhavn, too.
    Kh ~~.

    I learned Danish years ago and have just purchased a "refresher" course on two CDs plus book, the early introductory exercises I still understand well ... it's an intersting language, and closer to English grammaticlly (in some respects) than German, for example.
