Description: This composer is of the same generation and same neo-baroque and contrapuntal style as Hugo Distler, Ernst Pepping and Johann Nepomuk David who were all variously encouraged by the German early 20th century renewal of interest in chruch music circles of music earlier than Bach. Bright, golden-sounding music on a fine example of neo-baroque organ building from 1967. Andreas Sieling (Schuke organ of the Grunewaldkirche, Berlin), Wolfgang Talirz (viola), Luca Mariani (oboe).
