I recommend this to anyone who has even just a passing interest in organ music. Simon Preston's playing is outstanding. The Menuhin Festival Orchestra prove the perfect partnership in this delightful reading of some of Handel's most inspired scoring.

Searching for a complete box of Handel organ concertos I sudenly found this one with Menuhin in a spacious and energetic reading and a very inspiring Preston on the organ. I fell this one better than the Pinnock Archiv box. For a few pounds, nice recording and interpretation, I do recommend you to listen to it.

I loved these recordings when they first appeared in the late 60s and, for me, they have never been surpassed. Menuhin and Preston are totally at one in their partnership and Menuhin's direction shows a true love of the music. Speeds are spacious but never lethargic. Everything is so spacious yet alive. Four locations and thus four different organs are used which adds to the variety of colour and the recordings come from EMI's golden era.
The CD versions were late in appearing (1997) but they are re-mastered here (2007) but the discs now seem to be 'out of print' and the price is consequently increasing but these discs will provide endless enjoyment. Get them while you still can!
