 Famous Organ Works. December 9, 2014 By hannelore m. (huntsville, AL) See All My Reviews "I own this CD on an LP, but I am not able to play it anymore due to non-available play back needle. I searched on-line for this title and found this CD. As a child I was able to attend 2 concerts at the Thomas Kirche in Leipzig were Bach played the organ in his time. Some thing like this is unforgettable.Thanks for carrying wonderful music." Report Abuse
