I really want to find and purchase the = entire works of JS Bach on CD, but I can't afford to pay a mint for them. Any = other suggestions would be appreciated. I need the easiest pieces of Bach that = I can find. I also have to listen to them to make sure that I have the tempo = correct, etc, etc.....   Gray     > For those on the list who are looking for shorter organ transcriptions = that > do not appear too difficult to play. > > I have found an organ CD of a lot of those relatively short organ > transcriptions that are mentioned on the list from time to time.

All sorts of really good Bach organ recordings by some very fine organists, - all at less than $10.00 here in overtaxed Ontario!   Many other organ music composers are represented in NAXOS catalogue, there is quite an abundance of really worth while recordings.   I have quite a number of them and would suggest that you give them a try!   Good Luck,   Bob Conway   I should add that I have no connection with the NAXOS organisation, other than that of a satisfied customer!

Regards, Paul Austin = paul.p.austin@talk21.com   I'll bet there are churches out there that would jump at the chance, especially if the cost is reasonable.   The other thing is where are you located?   John V

Power Biggs entitled "Famous Organs of Holland and North = Germany," and no BWV number or any other intel is available on either the jacket or the label = of the LP itself.   Probably the only way I may find out what I want to know is if one of you = has this album, listens to that cut, and says, "Oh I know what that one is!"   H-e-l-p!   crs -----Original Message----- From: Evelyn Rowe <efrowe@mindspring.com> To: PipeChat <pipechat@pipechat.org> Date: Sunday, October 24, 1999 3:44 PM Subject: Re: Suitable Bach Score     At 02:05 PM 10/24/1999 -0400, Carl wrote: >Dear Listers: > >I'm thinking of getting one of our church organists a Christmas gift, = namely >the music to Bach's >Choral(e?)

I play three different ones (the two-voice one, the trio from the Leibzig Chorales, and the Orgelbuechlein one), and there are lots more Bach chorale preludes on that tune.   Because Bach is so central to the literature, I think most of us buy in bulk, so I have no idea what's out there in single copies. There are four or five urtext editions in print, from way cheap (Kalmus reprints of the old Peters edition) to way expensive (Baerenreiter and Mayhew), but = they're multi-volume Complete Works.   Good luck.   Evie   mailto:efrowe@mindspring.com   "Pipe Up and Be Heard!"
