Comments:Joseph Hartman said:

This is a very well put together recording. It displays the various influences and contemporaries of Bach and does so in a way that sheds light on the Bach section of the recording. The Buxtehude "Magnificat" is superb, but my favorite part of the recording is the Bach Prelude and Fuge in D major. Many organists let this piece get away from them, but Mr. Kollmansperger maintains a reasonable tempo throughout, thus giving the work impeccable clarity. Overall his playing is very open and honest and the small organ at Krevese compliments his style perfectly. Definite recommendation.
