The Metzler at Trinity College Cambridge
« on: June 08, 2017, 08:39:06 PM »
It's a real pleasure to hear Radio 3 devoting time to an organ recital - and with David Goode playing Bach on the Metzler at Trinity there's real inspiration.

The history of the instrument is on
http://trinitycollegechoir.com/media/filestore/articles/OrganHistory2.pdf

I saw reference to its "idiosyncratic" tuning and this was music to my ears. Bach really comes alive on the Metzler and http://www.cambridgeorganacademy.org/bachand.htm relates that it's tuned to Werkmeister. If only more instruments were tuned to systems with perfect fifths . . .

Best wishes
