    In May 2004 was the 400th anniversary of the death of Claudio Merulo (1533-1604), a great organist and composer of the Renaissance times. We are pleased to present the world premiere recording of the complete organ works of Merulo. These works represent the complete range of musical development of compositions for keyboard instruments in the 16th century. Since their quality had no equal at that time, Merulo’s opus is of immense importance for the history of music. Tapping the full potential of the then usual forms of expression and structure, Claudio Merulo – a contemporary of Gabrieli and his colleague as ”maestro di cappella” at the Marcus Cathedral in Venice – was an important pathfinder in a highly creative era. And he opened up a new one: the Baroque period.
