The organ is equally tuned. Information here:

I acquired Owens' Pachelbel vol.1 (on another organ). Found him a bit earthbound and matter of fact (like so many Pachelbel interpreters - Payne, Christie e.g.). Pachelbel's music is obviously difficult to play in an engaged way, and I have not considered vol.2., but now I wonder if I should download it from Presto.

Let me listen to v 1 first. I'll post my impressions here.

It's nice to see the bellows working in this restrained and dignified performance of Lady Carey's Dompe Kimberly Marshall.

I think this has been mentioned on here before, but I have really been enjoying watching this one, although I'm sure some cringe at hearing Sweelinck's music played on a Cavaillé-Coll instrument. I cannot find this one on my Radio Netherlands 10 CD set (Van Doeselaar, Dirksen, et al., purple cover), and am confused about the numbering system/catalog for Sweelinck's works.

(In any case, looks as if Daniel Roth would have been a great teacher. I would love to take lessons from someone like him)

Sweelinck numbering is mysterious.
