This is a very special edition in five volumes of researched, corrected and edited material by Professor Christian Martin Schmidt. Played on six romantic English organs.

Jennifer Bate – Organ

Of all five volumes, Jennifer Bate said: “It is a real priviledge and a life’s ambition for me to undertake this recording project, and my main aim has been to be faithful to Mendelssohn’s original scores, now encapsulated in the new edition”.
