Armagni & Mingot organ from Luins (Switzerland)                         

Luins is a tiny village of wine growers in the canton of Vaud, about thirty kilometers (18 miles) in the North-East of Geneva. Luins has a population of 632. 

The church of Luins has existed since at least the fourteenth century, but it was renovated in the Roman style in 1672, and dedicated to St. Peter. It became Protestant whith the Reform in 1536. In 1952 Fernand-Louis Dorier completely restored the building and made several major architectural changes, while fully respecting the Roman tradition. Bernard Viglino made the stained glass windows on the basis of a canvas by Yvon (Antoine) Monay.

Alain Grandchamp and Yves-Noël Denis recorded the organ. This is our second joint work with Alain and I was happy to make the sample. 

Special thanks to Gérard Lefranc and Dominique Dantand who continually supported my work and effective assistance provided to all phases of making of sample set. The artistic audio demos created István Nagy and Dominique Dantand and Enrico Sandrini.
