5.0 out of 5 stars Little Gems hidden among Bach's Great Monuments 23 May 2006
By B. Marold - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
'Orgelbuchlein'or 46 chorale preludes by Johann Sebastian Bach may seem like an insignificant work tucked in between Back's great masses, cantatas, concertos, and fugues. That is, until you perk up at the beginning of a Sunday service to discover your visiting organist is opening her service prelude with one of Bach's little preludes. You suddenly forget all the mediocre introductory music from weeks past and delight in the chords from that truly greatest of all composers.

While I am suddenly inspired to hear more different versions of this collection, Simon Preston's rendition on a famous Dutch cathedral organ is more than enough to assure me that these works are easily as interesting, albeit quite short, when compared to more famous pieces. And, it is still a thrill to find things from Bach which are quite within the skills of a single organist in a small church with a decent organ.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bach: Orgelbüchlein, BWV 599 - 644 15 May 2010
By Bjorn Viberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Bach: Orgelbüchlein, BWV 599 - 644 is a recording with Simon Preston playing 45 chorale preludes on the Sorö Organ by the master of church organ music himself J.S. Bach. Malcolm Boyd has written well-written and informative liner notes and he also gives a written description of the organ used for this recording. I am a devout Christian and often go to mass and therefore the organ and its sound has a special place in my heart. When I hear these astounding melodies I feel my soul leap with joy and I give a silent prayer to God and to our most precious mother Maria. Deutsche Grammophon is one of the best labels for classical music around and the sound quality is stupendous. This is a reccording that I highly recommend. 5/5.

I am very pleased with the CD and the timely fashion in which I received it. It is exactly what I wanted. I am so pleased I could obtain a recording of Simon Preston's interpretation of my favorite Bach pieces.
