An old Mono late 40s early 50s recording of excellent quality. To get complete organ works for that price is phenomenal! Over 10 hours of sublime Bach music will take me ages to listen to. Hours of pure joy!

EARLY WALCHA FOR THE ORGAN ENTHUSIAST May 12 2007
By L. E. Roberts - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is for Bach organ music lovers. It is the early recordings of Helmut Walcha, some made on the Arp Schnitger at Cappel before it was ruined by the introduction of steam heat in the 1950's, and the rest made on the organ in the St. Jakobi Church in Lubeck. It is a younger and more vigourous Walcha than the later recordings from St Laurenskerk in Alkmaar and the Silbermann in Strasburg. It also contains BWV 802-805 (four duets for harpsichord, although it does not contain Die Kunst der Fuge, as the later Archiv album does. It was a pleasure to see it back in print after all these years of playing elderly mono LP's, and the ten CD's are a steal for under $20.00.

Bach's old golden recordings Oct. 30 2007
By JJ van der Walt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I was very pleased to hear all the old recordings from Bach's organ works made by Helmut Walcha that I grew up with. Unfortunately BWV 539 was not included in this re-edition, which is actually very unfortunate because I specifically remembered this recording of Walcha of BWV 539 from the old mono LPs. Walcha played it fresh, speedy and excellent. I just hope that whoever has taken up this wonderful effort in producing this edition will make a re-edition in the future and include BWV 539. A word of advise for the super-critical hifi quality listeners, just adjust your treble equaliser a little lower to decrease a bit of distortion in the upper frequencies. The old mono recordings struggled sometimes to obtain the high demand of high frequencies without making too much destortion. This is however no reason not to get yourself the old historical recordings. A final word, if you are a Walcha fan, this is a must to have.

Helmut Walcha is my favorite player of Bach. These recordings were made when both he and the organ were in their prime. One really feels that - yeah - this was how Bach intended it to sound. Walcha has what might justly be called "mystic" insight into this music and developed an unsurpassed ability to reduplicate it in the material realm.
