Comments:Jan Hanford said:

A wonderful 7-cd box set released by Harmonia Mundi for their "Bach Edition" in 2000 for the Bach Anniversary. A collection of previously released recordings, it is a real treat to have them all together in one box. All the performances are highly recommended. Moroney's Well-Tempered Clavier is my favorite of those works.
