ORGELFÜHRER DEUTSCHLAND, Vol. 2


ORGELFÜHRER DEUTSCHLAND, Vol. 2, Karl-Heinz Göttert and Eckhard Isenberg. Kassel: Barenreiter, 2008. 223 pp., ill. ISBN 978-3-7618-1710-0. e 28.95. The team of Göttert and Isenberg-the former a professor of German literature, the latter a church musician-has proven to be quite prolific with their Orgelführer Deutschland (1998, now in its third printing), Orgelfuhrer Europa (2000), and Orgeln! Orgeln! (2002) published by Barenreiter, and Orgeln in KoIn (1998). A second volume of Orgelfuhrer Deutschland ("Organ guide to Germany") is therefore not unexpected and, in fact, is quite welcome.

Organs are grouped by region: Schleswig-Holstein, Hamburg, and Lower Saxony; Mecklenburg-Pomerania, Berlin, Brandenburg, and Sachsen-Anhalt; Saxony and Thuringia; North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland Palatinate; Hesse and BadenWurttemberg; and Bavaria. Fifty-nine chapters discuss over 80 instruments, from historic organs before 1800 recently restored or reconstructed (Altenbruch, Ansbach, Celle, Flensburg, Grauhof, Hamburg, St. Katharinen, Lüdingworth, Niederehe, Ochsenhausen, Ursberg, Villingen, Waltershausen) to large modern instruments by builders such as EuIe, GoIl, Hey, Jann, Jehmlich, Daniel Kern, Klais, Kuhn, Marcussen, Mühleisen, Peter, Rieger, Schuke, Seifert, Vleugels, Weimbs, and Woehl. Some of these recent instruments are in historical styles, hut most are eclectic organs with a French or German Swell (or both). Nineteenth- and early 20th-century instruments are prominently featured, and Germany seems finally to appreciate builders from this period such as Buchholz, EuIe, Friese, Furtwängler, Grüneberg, Ladegast, Link, Sauer, Stahlhuth, Steinmeyer, and Walcker. …
