  • Many thanks for this podcast! I’ve been eager to hear an untouched Tannenberg for many years now, and appreciate this opportunity.

    • As you can tell, I’m a bit slow at answering comments left here. Sorry about that!

      Thank you for enjoying the program. I loved going to the Moravian Historical Society’s museum and recording this beautiful instrument. It indeed is a gem in the pipe organ world!

    • I should also mention, the folks at the museum mentioned that they were considering recording an album of music with this organ. I hope they do and will let y’all know about it.
