Comments:An excellent recording done of the Schnitger organ in St. Michael's Church at Zwolle. This organ was the last instrument planned by Arp Schnitger and completed by his son Franz Caspar in 1721.

Michael Murray's rendition of the fugue in F major (BWV 548) brings out the best in this organ IMHO.

Those tracks marked '*' were recorded on the organ at St. Nicholas Church, Kampen.
