Comments:Bradley Lehman said:

3CD set. The organ (Taylor & Boody #41 completed 2005, Goshen College, Goshen Indiana USA) is tuned in what is believed to be Bach's own style of keyboard temperament, based on the research of Bradley Lehman. Album details and ordering information are at http://www.larips.com
