Many likely purchasers of this set will still own a few of the sumptuously produced, heavy, Archiv mono LPs bought in the 1950s and 60s. They may also have bought the 1947 - 1967 Archiv / Walcha project celebration LP. I recall being mesmerised by the flowing inevitability of the Trio Sonatas (BWV 525 - 30) and haunted by the `Schubler' Chorale Preludes (BWV 645 - 50). I only heard Walcha's Dminor Toccata and Fugue (BWV 565) when I got the 1967 re-issue and I recall being bowled over by the dash and energy of the playing of this blind man from the 1940s: mono or not it's been my benchmark recording ever since. When he remade the cycle in stereo Walcha was not as neat fingered and it's good to hear that he really could negotiate the `Wedge' fugue (BWV 548) in his earlier days.
Listening now on CD the limitations of the recording technology are more apparent than on vinyl - it's not historic tuning but tape flutter that occasionally afflicts the later (1952 / Cappel) recordings, and undoubtedly the pedals at Lubeck sometimes need more space than the engineers allow, but some of it stands up remarkably well. You hear a door open in the background at one point and the mystery clatters during Trio Sonata No.1 now prove to be Walcha's shoes on the organ pedals.
The Stellwagen organ at Lubeck has a piquant, reedy brightness which resonates into the spaces of the church and - even in mono - the effect is quite grand, for example in the Cmajor Prelude and Fugue BWV 547 and the conclusion of the Choralpartita BWV 768. While it may be a more evenly voiced instrument the sound of Schnitger organ in Cappel (originally built for a larger church) fills the (barrel vaulted) building too easily and overwhelms it in some of the big finishes.

I cannot agree with the previous reviewer. A wonderful set at a bargain price. Remastering is astonishing. Above all it shows Walcha as the great artist he was. I was moved and now want to hear his stereo set (which sells for a great deal more than the very modest cost of this mono set).

I am no religious person, but in encounters with nature and great music I feel as if I had some kind of religious experiences. Listening to Walcha's survey of Bach is a homecoming to me as I learnt to dwell in music as teenager listening to Bach. Those distant memories of those days in Kannelmäki when I was around 16 or 17 when I dwelled not only in Bach but also in my math homework and was hopelessly in love with one girl or another. Now I can appreciate that that period of my live with such agonising state of mind of a growing wannabe-intellectual, spirited young man was in fact so happy that it is worth idolising.

Oh, where were I? My relationship with Bach organ music has been somewhat off for 25 years, but now Walcha had returned me to the fundamental truth. Only now I can appreciate why the Preludes and Fugues are often considered his prime achievement with the organ; here and elsewhere, Bach's music is never robbed off its continuity. Every single peace forms a perfectly rounded universe by itself. This is the ultimate human achievement in music and so real that I almost cried from the outset.

This set is a real hidden gem compared to Walcha's later Bach set on DG Archiv.

The eat may take some getting used to the dry sound, often in mono, but don't stop listening. Many have argued that this is Bach played the way Bach may have played it. Take for instance the curious yet sparkling registration is the 'Great' A Minor Prelude and Fugue (BWV 543) or the fantastic build up in the Fugue of the B Minor (BWV 544).

Although incomplete, this survey is a great introduction to Bach's organ music or a useful pedagogical tool.
