This is a very special edition in five volumes of researched, corrected and edited material by Professor Christian Martin Schmidt. Includes Prelude & Fugue in D minor Op.37 No.3, Sonata No.5 in D Op.65, Fugue in C minor (Duet with Martin Stacey), Chorale in D minor, Allegro maestoso in B flat and others. 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”.

This is the final volume of the series and SOMM is very grateful to Jennifer Bate for her extensive research, lasting over thirty years, into the life and works of Mendelssohn’s organ works.
