OK, but...

"Nothing much I can say about this one - the assortment of the pieces is good, but I was rather disappointed to discover that Sleepers, Wake! was not indeed the organ version I sought so hard (if you've ever heard it live, you know what I'm talking about). Music is good, but because of the variety, does not set a single mood - pieces vary in tone -- I find myself listening to one or two tracks, then switching back and forth."
A super introduction to Bach

"For someone who knows little about Bach and wants to learn something, you couldn't do better than to give them this CD. Ormandy and the Philadelphia Orchestra give their signature warm, plush sound to the work of the great Johann Sebastian Bach, making him sound very nearly like a Romantic rather than a baroque or classical composer. This is not a bad thing--some complain that Bach, with his mathematical leanings, leaves them cold. That isn't possible with the inviting material on this CD."
A well-rounded introduction

"I bought Vol.1 of this offering on vinyl as a poor college student some few (!) years ago. Now I am delighted to find the whole thing! It is an excellent collection with which to introduce people, especially high school students, to Bach's range of work., plus it offers performances by some of the best conductors, artists and orchestras of their day."
