Its is a utter delight to return to this box, for we get Bach in colours and shadings not often heard. We have an excellent Bach interpreter, we have the beautiful Silbermann Organs, we have Frommen as a engineer, and we have inspiration and dedication from all involved. The project will never be repeated by Kooiman for he died unexpectedly in 2009, and a great loss that is. For me these recordings are a bit of a home coming, be it in a different land with organs unfamiliar with, in the sense that I am used hearing Bach on North German organs, but the stamp of authenticity given by Kooiman is prevalent above all else. He has created the basis for this set, and his pupils followed it up in the same vein as projected by him.
I simply love the Chorals from the Neumeister collection, and they are done gorgeously. This is a set you should listen at, and I have very little to say as just that. It will change your view on Bach in a favourable way.
