A highlight of our trip to Germany was visiting St. Martinus Kirche in Nettesheim, the parish church where my husband’s great-grandfather, Mathias Löhr was baptized. At the conclusion of the tour, we were honored with a selection of hymns played by Gerti Görtz.
Imagine my joy when earlier this year Klaus Erdmann sent us a recording of a concert given by the same organist three days after Christmas. It somehow seemed to transport us back to St. Martinus!
With permission, I’ve shared copies of the sound files with Jim’s siblings.
These are the photos of the organist, organ, and a Christmas scene at the church.
