    Bach organ works

    Found this on another forum but I think a lot of people here will be interested.

    You can download the complete recordings of the Bach Organ Works here: http://www.blockmrecords.org/bach/index.htm (in 256k AAC). Also a description of the organs used.

      Way too many organs to list, but I do have 5 Allens:
      • MOS-2 Model 505-B / ADC-4300-DK / ADC-5400 / ADC-6000 (Symphony) / ADC-8000DKC
      • Lowrey Heritage (DSO-1)
      • 9 Pump Organs, 1 Pipe Organ & 4 Pianos

        I'm still downloading too (I hope the site holds up!) but I think this is a fantastic and generous offering by Mr. Kibbie, whether or not he is the world's greatest authority on Bach performance, the fact that all of the pieces are gathered together and easily downloaded - for free - is an incredibly generous gift. Unfortunately I question whether this amount of data transfer will be sustainable long term, but I would like to see more sharing like this.

              Actually if you read the site carefully it is more a gift of a lady to remember her husband. She sponsored it and made it possible.

                  I wonder why there hasn't been more reaction to this wonderfull opportunity. Too baroque for US taste?

                    I'm afraid so. I've been enjoying it, though!

                      What kind of reaction were you expecting? I mean, I thought my post was pretty enthusiastic, but I could jump up and down and post it on YouTube if it would help!

                        I think he meant that only a few people had posted.

                          Ah - I started listening to it last night. I enjoyed the Orgelbuchlein - it's fascinating to hear nearly the whole thing played in one go. It doesn't take half as long to listen to it as it does to learn it! Why is that? Anyway, to my ears, it sounds pretty good. I haven't tried it on good speakers as I was more interested in the playing, rather than the recording quality, but aside from some volume variations that might have been my fault, it was quite interesting.

                            I expected a bit of discussion around it as well, what people tought of it. Listened to a random selection of Toccatas, Preludes, Fugues and free works and I like it. Good choice of organs, well recorded, excellent played etc.

                              I just finished downloading and organizing in iTunes. I am very enthusiastic (insert dancing bananas). Not as much gusto as Fox but I think not quite as dry as Biggs. So far the recordings seem pretty good technically and nice instruments. I am thrilled to have all of it in one place. To be able to play all of Bach's organ works (and well). That would be heaven. But at least I can listen.
