The organ is equally tuned. Information here:

http://www.canongatekirk.org.uk/organ/

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.

I just want to alert people that the two Anthoni van Noordt CDs in this set seem fabulous to me: organ, music, voices, sound engineering - all fabulous. The distributors are friendly, anglophone, responsive. The packaging is all in Dutch.

The third CD is mostly music by various van Noordts, one or two pieces by Anthoni but mostly others, and I haven't had a chance to hear it yet properly.

Good to hear!  :)

You might start here: http://www.orgelnieuws.nl/recensie-de-vrolijke-zwanenzang-van-jan-jansen/

I don't read Dutch, but I let my browser translate the page and it looks like there's a link to order the CD.

Found out something while looking this up. Jan Jansen is the father of violinist Janine Jansen.

Perfectly unconventional and beautiful :)
Who would have guessed, Pachelbel, Scheidt, Bruna, Frescobaldi along with some Buxtehude and Bach on a reed organ!

As always, great intel. Jansen as well. I will check both the discs. Weird, Toyama is very country. Thanks a lot.

Yep, and there are more musicians in this family. (A.o. her uncle Peter Kooij.)

Here are Jan & Janine in Bach's BWV 1017 (partly):

(Apologies for getting a bit off-topic.)

Jan Jansen was organist of the Utrecht Domkerk; his successor is Jan Hage.

In my country this instrument is called a psalm bike. I do not think I would stand the sound of it that long, even if Yoko Matsubara plays in an exemplary manner.

In my country it's called a harmonium.
In earlier days, probably the most popular calvinist/protestant home instrument. :)

One of the high points for me of Foccroulle's Frescobaldi CD was the music for organ and cornet, this CD, which is really enjoyable, is more of the same sort of thing.

Very good, any information on the organ used in the disc?
How did you think of Foccroulle's Frescobaldi CD, other than the cornetti music?

I don't. There's an interview with Foccroulle about it here, but if haven't had time to listen to it. It starts at about 1h11m. Foccroulle  talks about two organs, though it's not clear to me if he uses both on the disc, Rome Sta-Barbara, and somewhere called something like  Mombris or Nombrille further south, it's hard for me to make it out exactly.   The commentator says that the booklet for the recording is well researched.
