All examples are available in wave format (16 Bit, 44.1 KHz, which is CD quality) as well as in MP3 format (128 KBit/s). Usually the MP3 should be good enough, but whoever wants the last bit of quality (and has the appropriate playback equipment) should download the wave files.

As first shall be an example from Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy (1809-1847). It is labeled with "Andante alla Marcia" and should give you besides an overview of the instrument an impression of the sound colors it is possible to produce. For this different parts of the piece are registered differently. One can have a different opinion whether this is appropriate for such a small piece of music, but as a demonstration it should be all right.

The registrations are laid out in the following table:

BarGedackt 8'Rohrflöte 4'Prinzipal 2'Quinte 1 1/3'Oktave 1'

This is a direct recording from Hauptwerk. It shows particularly that the acustics of the organ are quite dry which makes it suitable for large and reverberating rooms. As a comparison this file with artificial reverb made with SIR Impulse Response Processor (http://www.knufinke.de/sir/) and the reverb file cathedral.wav.
