    Baroque Organ Music

    I love Baroque Music & I thought it would be useful to have a thread where I can find examples of Baroque Organ Music.

    I'm listening to Louis Couperin at the moment.

    Performed by Davitt Moroney, Boizard organ (1714), Saint-Michel-en-Thierache.

    Sweelink is probably the start of Baroque organ music. He influenced Buxtehude and the whole North German organ style. Here's Gustav Leonhardt playing a selection of his works:

    Georg Böhm is another Baroque Composer of Organ Music - I hadn't heard of him, so thought I'd start with a short piece. This is lovely.


    Georg Böhm: Prelude and Fugue in C-dur. Performed by Cor Ardesch on the Verschueren organ of the Grote Kerk in Dordrecht, The Netherlands.

    What do you think, MIMF reader? Is this your cup of tea? I find it a little sombre.

    Do lovers of organ music have a little more patience and concentration than the average listener?


    Dieterich Buxtehude - Passacaglia in D minor

    Performed by Mattias Eisenberg on the Silbermann Organ at St. Georgenkirche, Röthe (Germany). From the album "Great European Organs, Number 33: The Silbermann Organ at St. Georgenkirche, Röthe" (1994).

    Subdued, with great beauty and peaceful contentment, I would call it. The photos of (wartime?) destruction were jarring, but perhaps there is a message in the last photo (final restoration?).

    I have always liked the D minor Passacaglia of Buxtehude. His ciaconna's are also wonderful.

    Played the D minor many times years ago when I regularly did concerts. Last concert I did was in 2010, in Denmark.

    Johann Caspar Ferdinand Fischer - Chaconne (Euterpe)

    Massimo Gabba
    Organo Moucherel-Formentelli
    Albi Cathédrale 2012



    I only discovered this composer recently. In the early eighteenth century he was considered one of the foremost keyboardists of his day. He was an admirer of Lully & introduced the French baroque style to Germany.

    I love his music - what a pity it is that not much of it has survived, or I'm sure that his reputation would be higher.

    One of my Facebook Friends introduced me to Stanley - he really is a fabulous composer of baroque organ music.
