Description: Here’s a rare example of organ music between Bach’s death and Mendelssohn’s organ sonatas of the 1830s and 40s from a renowned organist (Mendelssohn considered him the finest in Germany) who kept playing Bach throughout his long career and kept up Bach’s pedal technique (audible in some of these pieces) when even C.P.E. Bach had not. Halgeir Schiager (organ of Steinkjer Church).
