Seven Magnificat settings by Heinrich Scheidemann and two anonymous settings
This double CD focuses on the Magnificat settings by Heinrich Scheidemann found in the manuscript Ze1. The script also includes two anonymous settings that by many scholars are attributed to Scheidemann, which I argue against in my dissertation. The organ is the big Schnitger copy that stands in Örgryte new church in Göteborg, and is a result of a research building project initiated by Göteborg Organ Art Center (GOArt).
Tantum is the name of the second recording with the trio Jormin, Nelson and Simonson. We recorded the CD in the beautiful church of Mariager, Danmark at the organ built by the French organ builder Aubertin. Tantum is the first track on the CD, the melody is based on a middle-age Gregorian chant.
The French trombonist François Lemonnier and I have recorded this CD with the title Misterioso in St. Paul Church in Salzburg on another organ built by my husband Karl. The first track of the recording is a free interpretation of the piece Misterioso composed by Thelonious Monk.
Jul i Haga
Recorded on the lovely Brombaugh meantone organ in Göteborg during the wee hours of the night, in an effort to avoid the noise of streetcars and other traffic that prevails during the day. Two pieces, by the Swedish composers Sven-Eric Johanson and Peter Hansen, were specially written for this recording.
Songs in Meantone
This was a collaboration with two friends and colleagues at the Academy of Music and Drama, Jonas Simonson and Anders Jormin. We also used the mean tone organ in Örgryte new church, Göteborg. Our idea was to make music together from our three different perspectives; church music, folk music and jazz, through the prism of improvisation.
Scheidemann: Organ Works, Vol. 2
The Brombaugh organ in Göteborg was also used for this recording, made by the talented sound master Erik Sikkema. I remember this period as very hectic, we were young parents, our two dear children kept us running during day time, while during the nightly recording sessions I had to be in top concentration.
