Bach - Toccaten &
  Fantasien für Orgel
Price: Sek. 82
This recording presents several of J.S. Bach's most famous organ works as well as various chorale preludes. The majority of these pieces demonstrate the influence of the North German school and of Buxtehude and Reinken in particular, although how this is done depends very much on whether the piece concerned is a chorale prelude or one of the larger free-form works. Until recently the opening bars of Wo Gott der Herr nicht bei uns hält were all that we knew of the score, given that a fair copy came to light in a public auction only in March 2008.
