The album by Kei Koito features famous and well known baroque and pre-baroque music by composers such as Buxtehude, Praetorius, Scheidt, Scheidemann, and others The tracklisting is based on alteration: after an organ piece, the corresponding choral work is sung by the renowned Italian ensemble Il Canto Di Orfeo. The program of this album has been recorded in the famous “Stephanskirche” in Tangermünde, Germany. The Baroque organ of 1624 by Hans Scherer the Younger and his brother Fritz Scherer is especially noteworthy. Its design, consisting of a main organ, a Rückpositiv and bass pipes, is a clear example of the Scherers' construction technique known as the "Hamburg Prospekt". In 1994 it was restored. The organ, which had been altered several times in its history, was restored to its original acoustic pattern, which was possible as 50% of the original pipes were still in place. The instrument is tuned in a mid-tone. The instrument is famous among organ player all.

Equally adept with both the cello and organ, Alexander Knyazev, a graduate of the Moscow Conservatory specializing in cello and Nizhny Novgorod Conservatory specializing in organ has long focused on the organ and cello repertory of J.S. Bach. Lauded for his innate musicality and interpretative skills, Knyazevs first public acclaim came as a cellist. This collection presents the rarely performed chorale preludes composed by Bach during his stay in Leipzig in the last decade of his life and not published until after his death. Recorded in 2012 in the Riga Cathedral in Latvia renowned for its historic pipe organ.

Label: Leaf Music | Tracks: 18 | Rls.date: 2017

This recording of organ music performed by Gayle h. Martin highlights the organ music of Johann Sebastian Bach and Dietrich Buxtehude. The repertoire exposes the two composers' shared musical influences and unique compositional style. Because the two composers spent the majority of their lives playing, directing, and composing church music, organ composition and performance were at the heart of both of their careers. The Praeludia (also called toccatas) of Buxtehude and the preludes and fugues of Bach belong to instrumental genres not based on a tune with text.

It’s now time for a release with the famous German organist Helmut Walcha. This is the first of initially 4 releases with Walcha playing J. S. Bach. He recorded the complete works by J. S. Bach twice, from 1947-1950 in mono on the Schnitger organ in Cappel and in St. Jakobi in Lübeck and 1956-1971 on the famous organ in Alkmaar. This release is from the Alkmaar serie and is therefore in stereo. A quite interesting thing is to compare it with the IHORC14 release, where Fernando Germani plays the exact same organ about two years later…

The C minor Passacaglia and Fugue is one of the great masterpieces for the instrument and one which inspired countless responses from composers great and lesser. So it's all the more astonishing to think that Bach wrote it while still a twenty‐something hireling in Weimar, where his Kapell meistership to the Duke ended badly with the composer being clapped in irons for touting his availability for other jobs, frustrated as his ambition was by the restrictions of the position.

In 1900 the Stuttgart Hymnus Boys' choir (German: Stuttgarter Hymnus-Chorknaben) was initiated by the Swabian entrepreneur Paul von Lechler. His models were the Thomanerchor Leipzig and the Dresdner Kreuzchor. (…) The Stuttgart Hymnus Boys' Choir has a broad repertoire of spiritual vocal music, especially music by Johann Sebastian Bach and other baroque composers. Parallel to the concerts the musical-liturgical arrangements of masses have a special meaning. About 170 boys and 30 young men come together to rehearse in Stuttgart weekly, because the choir does not have a boarding school. The singers live with their parents and go to school in their hometowns…

…Harald Vogel is an authoritative proponent and guide through all aspects of this music, and the quality of his playing, and of the recordings and choice of instruments can hardly be faulted. Already recognised as interpretations and recordings without equal, certainly in a complete edition, this set has to be considered the current Buxtehude standard bearer.
