Hi!

Here are some samples from a disc comparing the organs of
St Maximin
St Remy de Provence
Albi and
Lucon

The recording is exceptionally good and the CDs are very much worthwhile buying - "Les Organistes Postclassiques Parisiens 1740-1860" Beavarlet-Charpentier Lasceux G-F Couperin and Benoist played by Nicolas Gorenstein.

Below are extracts demonstrating

The Grand Jeu http://www.organmatters.co.uk/grand-jeu.wma
Hautbois and Flute http://www.organmatters.co.uk/hautboisflute.wma
Cromorne sur les fonds http://www.organmatters.co.uk/cromorne2.wma
Cromorne http://www.organmatters.co.uk/cromorne.wma
and
the Voix Humaine http://www.organmatters.co.uk/voixhumaine.wma

I'm wondering if anyone with the St Maximin sampleset on Hauptwerk might be able to demonstrate how near the Hauptwerk version of this instrument is to the real thing as recorded so well here?

It is of course absurd not to be able to discuss such matters on the Hauptwerk forum.

Best wishes
