The Berlin Organ Christmas
Rodney Jantzi, is the proud owner of a Berlin Organ Co reed organ. This instrument has been in use from 1904 till 2008 in Zion Lutheran Church in Wabewawa, Ontario, Canada. Rodney restored it in 2009 in a meticulous way, and this instruments now sparkles in quit a number of his performings on Youtube. In doing so he became one of the formost promotors of the Heritage of the Reed Organ.
I am not a musician, nor am I a musicologist. The best compliment I can write down is this: When listening to his recording:
I HEAR HIS SOUL !!
Thousands of miles away from here in The Netherlands, and still a strong connection.
You can experience that bonding too. Buy the disc and listen to these songs. Mind you it is one of the very few discs released in USA & Canada featuring the Reed Organ.
go down there is more
Of course there is no nr. 0 track. It is a referral to the famous words
"Ich bin ein Berliner"
by John F. Kennedy in 1963.
And the organ used in this recording is "ein Berliner"........
