Description

This CD celebrates the 20th anniversary of the Association of Friends of the Baroque Organ and demonstrates Langenbogen's rich musical life. Up to now, the Association has organized more than 100 events. This CD presents mainly organ works played by Thomas Ennenbach. In addition, we hear the Association's Chairman Ralf Mielke (solo flautist in Halle Staatskapelle), and members of the Ensemble Arco Lungo.

Considering the age of St. Magdalenen in Langenbogen near Halle, one would not expect to find a Baroque organ inside. The church was rebuilt in 1826 replacing a Gothic predecessor, but surprisingly, still holds an 18th century organ, the history of which had been unclear for a long time. When the Association of Friends of the Baroque Organ was founded in 2001, the organ was in a deplorable state. On 31 October 2003, the instrument was dismantled by master organ builder Ekkehart Gros and transported to his workshop in Waditz near Bautzen for restoration.

During the restoration period, the history of the organ was discovered. An inscription found in the wind chest said that Weisenfels court organ builder Georg Theodor Klos built this organ in 1735, though it remains unclear for which church it was built. The Halle organ builder Johann Gottfried Kurtze then transferred the organ to the new Langenbogen church in 1826. For the Kloß Organ with its 529 sounding pipes, intensive and varied use began on 31 May 2004 and continues to this day.
