I followed the very favourable critical reviews that greeted the arrival of the individual albums in this series and bought a couple of the discs which have been amongst my favouirtes in my disc collection. However I couldn't really justify the expense of buying the whole series at full price. With the arrival of this complete boxed set, this glorious music, superbly played on several different, well chosen organs, and vividly captured by excellent engineering, has become eminently affordable. I most warmly commend it to any lover of organ music.

It would be superfluous to add further superlatives to the existing learned reviews, but perhaps I might encourage others to listen and make up their own minds.
This matchless music should be listened to by all regardless of personal musical taste. J.S. Bach had unique gifts which he felt had been bestowed upon him, and for which he felt a responsibility. After listening to this recording by Simon Preston you may be inclined to agree.
