Comments:Philippe Allard said:

An interesting record in the serie, but with a strange combination of works. Marie-Claire Alain is at her best. The choice of the Alkmaar Van Hagerbeer/Schnitger organ (which Bach never played, but he played other Hamburgh Schnitger, as explained in the booklet) gives a richness of sounds which Marie-Claire Alain seems to use very well, without exageration.
