Corien de Jong, Organ.
No mention which organ is used.
First and foremost this is well composed music, in excellent performances and well recorded. A fine pastime and entertaining to boot. It gives a impression of popular Spanish baroque music, which was very colourful and invigorating. I especially liked the organ pieces. There is a sort of forceful push behind it but not overly much. Corien de Jong plays the pieces rhythmically precise, well aware of the technical possibilities. The voices on this disc are matched to the background of these compositions, which is popular and sacred music mixed. It works, but I was not really able to keep my attention span intact during the 67 minutes which it lasts. No matter, perfect background music with added artistic quality.
