Elizabeth Harrison plays works by the Dutch organ composer J. P. Sweelinck (1562-1621) and several German composers who studied with him, then spread his influence in Germany. She plays the famous 4-72 C. In 1573, at the age of eleven, Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck succeeded his father as organist of the prestigious Oude Kerk, or Old Church, in Amsterdam. Of particular interest is the steady flow of young German organists who flocked to Amsterdam to study with Sweelinck, later taking home with them a practicing knowledge of his music and a generous sampling of his works and pedagogical instructions. This influx of knowledge into Germany redirected a thriving organ culture with influences via Sweelinck from all over Europe. Of Sweelinck's German students, four gained particular prominence in Germany in the early seventeenth century.

There is secondary evidence which seems to substantiate this visit, namely some mutual influencing between Gibbons and Sweelinck and his school, as is apparent from a number of specific harpsichord pieces. It can also be shown that the year 1613 marked a turning point in Gibbons's development as a (keyboard) composer.

SWEELINCK–Maker of Organists. Artistic Quality: 10. Sound Quality: 10. Although little is known about Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck’s training as an organist, and none of his autograph or printed keyboard scores survive, the evidence clearly shows his substantial competence as a composer and influence as a teacher. This disc offers selections from both Sweelinck’s output and that of several of his pupils. Dirck Sweelinck’s variations on Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern (Dirck was Jan’s son) is one of the disc’s highlights, along with father Jan’s Toccata XX and Fantasia II (a weighty work reminiscent of Bach’s more extended compositions) and Scheidemann’s powerful, majestic Praeambulum 8 that closes the program.
