Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Vigor and energy are the keynotes of Hurford's approach to the large-scale works and, without losing their majesty, he never let's the fugal momentum get bogged down by the music's weight and scale. We hear Bach's organ writing with new ears, its human vitality revealed alongside its extraordinary architecture." – Penguin Guide to Compact Discs & DVDs, 2005/06 Edition "Vigor and energy are the keynotes of Hurford's approach to the large-scale works and, without losing their majesty, he never let's the fugal momentum get bogged down by the music's weight and scale.
