Comments:John Stone said:

A majesterial performance, using different stops on the organ for a variety of moods and tones, usually appropriate, except perhaps for the unfinished fugue, which is played forte throughout, which diminishes clarity of the individual voices. The inclusion of other late works (e.g. Canonic Variations) is a nice bonus.
