The St. Jocobi organ was first completed in 1693 by the master German organ builder Arp Schnitger. The instrument suffered loss of some of its parts during the World Wars but most of it was carefully stored out of reach of the bombs that destroyed the church building during WWII. Now the organ lives again in its 17th century glory thanks to a diligent restoration carried out by experts. It is played wonderfully by Gustav Leonhardt. The music on this recording is truly sublime and favors our ears as it is played on an organ known to some of the composers featured.
