Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Bach compiled the "Eighteen Chorales" during the last years of his life. He chose pieces from very different periods in his life but must have composed most of them while still in Weimar. Some of these late mature versions differ considerably from the earlier versions. The manuscript concludes with the legendary chorale arrangement "Vor deinen Thron tret' ich hiermit" BMV 668, which Bach dictated shortly prior to his death. The "Leipzig Chorales" are among the essential repertoire of each and every organist. The interpretation of them by the young Canadian organist Craig Frederick Humber on the famous Silbermann organ in St. Peter's Church in Freiberg heard on these two SACDs renders audible a fascinating musical heritage.

Sunday Times
[the organ of St Petri, Freiberg has] a beautiful, rich, characterful sound, conferring the benefit of authenticity on the Canadian Craig F Humber's attentive and spirited playing. These formally sui generis pieces are inexhaustibly compelling: music in the pure state.

Reviews

Silbermann organ is the star of the show
Well played and well recorded Bach works on an excellent 18th century organ. Read the full review at: http://www.classical-cd-reviews.com/2010/06/bach-leipzig-chorales-craig-f-humber.html
