"With reconstructions based on historical images to the oldest playable organ in the world, Vicens designs the fascinating and multifaceted sound image of a long time ago and at the same time builds an exciting bridge into the 21st century. Outstanding!" - G.K., Deutsche Schallplatten Kritik Award.

"The result is as spiritual as it is profound. Vicens goes to the inner body of the organ, a deep, full sound as if one looks into the open mouth of a creature that lures you...

 

You will never look at heritage the same way again" - V. D., Cultuurpakt.be
