Is there a special tool required to install the AA45 concealed door closer. I was wondering how you open and fix the second face against the spring tension?

Yes, they come with a small metal retainer which holds the chain out while you fit it.  You’ll need to attach the plate to the frame (or a spare bit of wood) then pull the chain out as far as it’ll come and slip in the retainer.  Next detach the plate from the frame and fit the door closer into the door, then finally re-attach the plate to the frame and remove the retainer, so the spring can re-tension the chain.

I’m looking for door closers for a pair of two-way swing doors. Floor springs are one option, but is there another option that would prevent free swinging but return the doors to the closed position? The doors are internal church ones, oak with glass panels, not very wide or heavy.

I think you may be right that floor spring door closers (e.g. Geze TS500 NV) would probably be the best option for your double action doors.  The only other possibility is a concealed closer (e.g. The Geze Boxer) fitted into the head of the door, but you’d need to check there was enough thickness & depth of wood there to fit it.  It also need to be fitted professionally, so it may not work out much less expensive.
