Notes & Reviews:

It is thanks to Albert Schweitzer that the Eglise Saint-Thomas in Strasbourg and its famous Silbermann organ holds a special place in the 20th-century rediscovery of Bach's organ works. In addition to writing the book Bach, the Poet-Musician, in which he sought to explain the public's instinctive attractions to the cantor's works, Schweitzer was also titular organist at the Eglise de Saint-Thomas and a fierce defender of its instrument. It was also Schweitzer who originally had the idea of organizing a concert entirely devoted to Bach's music on the anniversary of his death, July 28, 1908, an idea that was to be taken up again each succeeding year. These annual concerts became one of the most solid institutions of musical life in Strasbourg.
