Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Kevin Bowyer shows himself to be a remarkably astute interpreter of these bite-size preludes. They dance, they sing, they mourn, they weep, all within their tiny time-spans; perfectly formed microcosms of Bach’s supreme genius in the chorale prelude genre." -- Gramophone [4/1996]

Each of the organ chorale preludes on this set is prefaced by a choral performance of the corresponding hymn setting by J. S. Bach.
