I couldn't believe it when I saw this record in my favorite music store. When I was a little boy there were two vinyl records at home
(Jazz Sebastien Bach and Back to Bach), that I loved and were lost of my home. Just listen to the quality of the voices and the ability of those men and
women (Think for instance in the fugue in D major of WTC I) for singing that well such difficult works
