Claude-Bénigne Balbastre: Canonnade
Very special piece by French organist & composer Claude Balbastre, reflecting the times of the French Revolution, with characteristic "cannon blows" at 00:32-00:50, 02:00, 03:45-04:00. For the cannon blows, Trompetenwerk that consists of Trompete 16', 8' & 4' at IV. manual proved to be very useful (later addition from 1998 to the organ overall sound palette), and was used because of its particulary loud special effect.
