2019 will be the second year of the festival Vox Organi (Latin for: The Voice Of The Organ). The two festival organizers are Martin Heubach, director of the Gandersheim Cathedral Music, and Director of Sacred Music Prof. Dr. Friedhelm Flamme, chairman of Concerto Gandersheim e.V., the supporting association of Vox Organi.
The greater Lower Saxon area that stands for the festival’s subtitle The Organ Festival In Lower Saxony holds, both in its larger cities and in its rural small towns and villages, a treasure of charming old churches where greatly unknown organs of major historical importance can be discovered. It is expressedly the festival’s goal to present these places and their instruments and thus to reawaken a public general interest in sacred places and sacred music. Here are the 2019 organs (click on a picture for the organ’s specification).
The list of participants is again a Who is Who of internationally renowned organists. Several concerts will have an additional program of choir and vocal soloists, and there will be two organ excursions led by a renowned organist and musicologist.
Have fun and enjoy Vox Organi!
