I'm still waiting to discover the catch on this one. 100 tracks for a tiny fraction of the combined prices for individual downloads. For the price I was half expecting a collection of sample tracks, or for it all to have been done on an electronic keyboard or something, but apparently not.
I've listened to about a quarter of the tracks and so far, all good. I'm no classical music expert by any means, but I've recently developed a liking for Bach and all of the pieces in this collection sound well recorded and performed to me! Anyone looking to develop a collection can't really afford to pass this one over. Bargain.

Bought the item not expecting much, after all the songs worked out at £0.149p each! However, I'm pleased to say it's a very enjoyable CD with perfectly reasonable instrumentation and quality for its price. Excellent choice for anyone looking for some of Bach's most famous works.

This is a lovely collection of Bach and I can't complain for £1.49. It would have been nice to also know who was playing the music too (orchestra & solo violinist). Overall, good quality sound and a variety of compositions both popular and less known.

Bach is a pivotal figure in music. In my opinion (and I am a bass player) he was the first composer to give the bass worthwhile (i.e. both interesting and musical) parts in their own right rather than 'plodding' or functional.

You can't buy this range and quality of music elsewhere. There is EVERYTHING here. Small groups (in classical parlance that's duos, trios and quartets) are what I like but there's a good portion of all Bach's work and despite being prolific Bach never lacks quality or invention. Classical music fan? Well it's all here and what's more this is where it started. This is the bridge between the stiad and slow Handel and English folk and the frills and thrills of Mozart and the seriousness of Betthoven.

For this money you can't NOT buy it and find your money's worth somewhere in here...

Performances are very good. However the volumes of the various pieces is irritatingly variable so one is unable to leave one's player on the same volume setting all of the time.

This has to be an absolute bargain. The recordings may be old but they are still very good. You can;t go wrong at this price.

Plenty of Bang for your Bach. Good recordings and a nice range of pieces. Excellent car music and easy listening.

I have played this daily on my walk to and from work and can't believe I have got this much enjoyment and uplift for less than the price of a cup of coffee. I am a novice in classical music and this just makes me want to listen to more. Great value.

Not the best of reproduction but considering what you get for the money that you pay then it is worth having. I can recommend it to anyone who is not an absolute perfectionist listening to this through expensive speakers.

Bach was a genius, particularly with the Organ.

The more I hear his music the more I believe this.

100 Bach Organ pieces would be a perfect addition to this series.
