The Marcussen Organ of Sct. Hans Kirke, Odense, Denmark
Overview - Bowyer's cycle, in progress since 1991, features unmannered virtuosity, an organ of striking tone quality and an exceptionally realistic modern recording. Each disc contains a variety of works in the form of a recital, sustaining interest throughout. Bowyer's intriguing registrations distinguish the set.
Disc II - Another excellent entry in this series. The prelude from the Prelude & fugue in G BWV 541 is well-sprung and memorably transparent. The hint of reeds in the registration
of Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott BWV 721 is also enjoyable. There is much variety on the disc, but less severe, major-key works predominate.
