Notes & Reviews:

The program on this CD includes organ works by members of the Bach family spanning some 150 years; works that partake more or less directly of the liturgical Christmas season. The selections focus first and foremost on the tonal resources of the four Bremen Cathedral organs and, via the Romantic Sauer organ, take into account 19th century settings by Widor, Karg-Elert and Best. In the history of music the Bach family constitutes a rather special case: in seven successive generation the Bach's were active as church or municipal musicians, particularly in their homeland of Thurignen and later as far away as Leipzig, Berlin, Hamburg, Milan, and London.
