Notes and Editorial Reviews

J. S. Bach’s Clavier-Ubung III, which is frequently referred to as the German Organ Mass, is a collection of works for organ which was begun in 1735 and published in 1739. It is considered to be Bach’s most important and extensive work for organ, and contains some of his most complex and demanding writing for that instrument. This release presents the work, supplemented by Bach choral settings of the respective chorale melodies. Featured soloists on this release include the Vocal quartet of the J. S. Bach Foundation- soprano Lia Andres, alto Antonia Frey, tenor Raphael Hohn, and bass Philippe A. Rayot. “The author has given here new proof that in this kind of composition he excels many others in experience and skill. No one can surpass him Read more in this sphere, and very few indeed will be able to imitate him. This work is a powerful argument against those who have ventured to criticize the music of the Court Composer.” (Lorenz Mizler, Muzikalische Bibliothek 1740) Read less
