Review quote

The editions are beautifully and clearly presented, and sit flat easily on the music desk - a practicality too often overlooked! . . . I would heartily recommend the first volume to pupils wishing to explore Bach's easier repertoire. * Richard Apperley, NZ Organ News, September 2014 * Modern editions, with their grouping by genre, or by MS and printed collection, present a bewildering variety of choice to both teacher and player, and offer little guidance on how best to structure study of this central repertoire. The Oxford Back Books for Organ are therefore entirely welcome, and in its selection of repertoire the series represents the insight borne of the editoras enormous teaching experience . . . The editoras performance
notes are a model of good sense and pragmatic scholarship, performing miracles of compression in covering aspects of touch, registration and ornamentation in very limited space . . . This is an impressive collection in both concept and realisation, and even those who think they know their way around the BWV catalogue
will find much in it to stimulate and reward, whether as teachers or performers. * Stephen Farr, Choir & Organ Jan 15 *
