This III/30 house organ is appropriate for the domestic scale of the chorale partitas recorded here: Ach, was soll ich Sünder machen; Christ, der du bist der helle Tag; O Gott, du frommer Gott; and Sei gegrüsset, Jesu gütig. These early works, modelled on those by Georg Böhm, explore an array of figurae. The Récit manual sounds reticent, but the organo pleno in the final movement of Sei gegrüsset is impressive. Stephen Farr makes the most of the tonal colours on this interesting organ, and the temperament by Thomas Young (1800) gives bold character to the tonalities.
