    Thanks, I'll go Naxos for now. Love their organ series.

    I can recommend these three, all by Peter Hurford for Argo in 1984:
    Hindemith: 3 Organ sonatas
    Mendelssohn: Organ works
    Cesar Franck: 3 Chorals
    The first two Peter played at the Rieger organ in Ratzeburg cathedral. Its bottom D reaches 19 Hz and is captured in the Mendelssohn.

    And these two by Marie-Claire Alain, both for Erato in 1996:
    Couperin: Messe des paroisses
    de Grigny: Messe

    I hope this one will be uploaded for quite a long time: Sietze de Vries live, performing on the gorgeous Schnitger et al organ in the Martinikerk, Groningen, NL (recorded earlier this month, as a gesture towards those who were not able to hear him perform on July the 8th, because of the Covid-19 regulations).

    De Vries is playing works of Buxtehude, Bach and himself (improvisations).
    He talks in between works (in Dutch) about the organ and the works.

    BuxWV 147 in G minor: 00:28
    BuxWV 199 ("Komm, heiliger Geist, Herre Gott"): 13:56

    BWV 1054 (arranged by Bernard Winsemius): 21:54

    Improvisations on "Lobe den Hernn, den mächtigen König der Erden": 41:58

    The organ at Wimborne Minster was, I believe, at one time rated second best 3 manual in the UK after the 1965 rebuild, I first heard it in the late 1960s when the organist was Michael Austin, I have his recording on vinyl but it's not listed on youtube, all I can find is Martin Schellenberg's Fanfares to Fancies, an eclectic mix of 13 works from baroque to contemporary.

    The last time I was there to hear it, the organist was our esteemed admin @Krummhorn who gave it a good work out! (where does it stand in your ratings Lars?)

    For those interested in the organ details and history, herewith the NPOR listing
