Bach: Organ Works, Vol.III
“This is as good as it gets, and the playing has that effortless feel about it which is combined with highly suitable instrument and very skilled recording technique to produce a most satisfying CD… This is the best performance of BWV 769 on CD that I know.” – Early Music Review
Part of Robert Quinney’s Bach cycle recorded on a range of instruments, this album features as its centrepiece the wonderful Einige Canonische Veränderungen über das Weynachts-Lied ‘Vom Himmel hoch da komm ich her’ (BWV 769a). These wonderful festive variations, which are full of passionate vitality and poetical feeling, are accompanied by a selection of preludes and fugues.
- Robert Quinney (Organ)
