Peggy Kelley Reinburg has written the first comprehensive book in English to chronicle the remarkable achievements of Arp Schnitger, whose influence extends to the twentieth century with the current interest in Baroque instruments and performance practice. The book gives an account of organ-building activity in North Germany and the Netherlands prior to Schnitger, describes in detail many of his constructions as they related to various periods in his life, and comments on Schnitger's impact on trends in organ building. Specifications are given for twenty-two extant organs, and appendixes include a glossary of German-English technical terms, complete scalings for several Schnitger organs, and a chronological listing of all Schnitger instruments.
