Works performed by:
As with CD 1.
Plus: Bernard Foccroulle & Guy Penson, Organ.
A treat, to start with Buxtehude played by Bernard Foccroulle on organ, and Schein and Scheidt, played by Guy Penson. Foccroulle Buxtehude recordings on Ricercar are played on a number of fine organs, but I do not know which organ it is of this compilation. They sound marvelous though. Still available as a 5 CD set, but quite expensive. The Guy Penson recordings, (Scheidt and Schein), I could not find. As for the choir works and instrumental works they are all from mediocre to good, as are the recordings. The organ recordings are superb.

Unfortunately Volume I of Graupner is missing in that list. It is OOP. The prices paid on Amazon are ridiculous.
