Misc. Notes This virtual performance was created with the Garritan Classic Pipe Organs software.

This piece of software is in a way like the Hauptwerk software (as played by mr. Peter van der Zwaag in the Recordings tab), although not as capable as Hauptwerk, and can also be played from a MIDI keyboard. In this case, however, the Classic Pipe Organs is powered from a sequencer program, and that´s why I have chosen the category Synthesized/MIDI.

URTEXT EDITION 

This is an urtext/critical/scholarly/scientific edition (or a simple re-engraving). Any commentary or critical apparatus, if protected by copyright, should not be included in the scan(s) available here. This edition was published by Bärenreiter in Germany over 25 years ago and is in the public domain in its country of origin.

In Canada, new editions/re-engravings of public domain works (when not including new original material) should be in the public domain due to failing to meet the threshold of originality. In most European Union countries, these editions (except new original material) are generally protected for no more than 25 years from publication (30 years in Poland). In the United States, copyright can only apply to new creative work, and the re-engraving of a public domain piece (not including new additions of creative material) should not qualify for a new copyright, despite copyright claims (which properly would only apply to new material).

You may need to check the publication date and details of the work's first publication in order to determine the work's copyright status, especially for the United States.
