Both of these were recorded on a Dutch organ in the Old-Catholic Parish Church of St. Anne and St. Mary, Haarlem, an instrument chosen by Chorzempa as he felt it enabled performances exact requirements in registration and had tone color approaching that of the English organs of Handel's time.  Accompaniments by Concerto Amsterdam and conductor Jaap Schroder match the organ perfectly, and the sound, recorded in September 1975, is appropriately spacious and warm. Highly recommended!
