Performed by Harald Vogel.

Music is partly from under recorded composers and therefore doubly welcome. Vogel makes all the music shine, and adds his supreme excellence to all composers. What a fabulous organist he is.
No booklet in this box, but most of the details are on the sleeve. A very good start of this box.
The sound is state of the art. All the organs are presented in the best possible way. Recommended.
