This is a recording of 2 classical Danish psalms played at the organ in an old church in Han Herred, Northern Jutland. The church was originally build of granite in the 12th century in roman style. Other parts such as the tower were added later in the late middle ages, and a major repair was made in 1801. Most of the inventory is from the 16th and 17th century, however the organ is said to be far newer.
Historically, this is a windy and remote region of the country, squeezed between Limfjorden and the North Sea, and it has been highly affected by sand drift over the centuries.
Below is the resulting audio-video footage from July 2012. The sound is captured about 4 meters in front of the organ. Listen in headphones for the best quality.
There are about 1000 preserved medieval churches in Denmark, which all together provide a rare view into the local history and culture.
