    Like your piano postings, that is of superior quality. This piece belongs for me to the non plus ultra if it comes to Bach organ music, and organ music in general. You played it wonderful. Some articulate the famous fugue theme more distinct so that it comes more cleary in the ears every time it comes again in the different voices. But nethertheless, that demanding piece you executed soooooo well - thank you for sharing.

    I am wondering a bit about the strong stereo effect I recognize. Did you place the mics directly in front of the pipes or is it an organ with backpositive (in German called "Rückpositiv") so that it can has its own microphone to get that stereo effect on different manuals? Or is it an electronic organ?

    Thank you for sharing that wonderful music, and played so beautiful too. Did you record the belonging toccata as well?

    You are an accomplished organist on top of everything else.
    I do not quite share the general enthousiasm for this particular Bach work, but you play it consummately. Even though the sound is rather lacking in clarity and the pedal seems to be barely audible (perhaps with proper speakers it would be). I have put this up the site, thanks for sharing with us.
