Following a lapse in contributions to the organ repertory during the latter part of the eighteenth century, the complexion of the nineteenth century looked altogether different and played host to a revival of interest in the instrument. Often referred to as the ‘Bach revival’, the movement also saw a fresh enthusiasm for Bach’s work by musicians and composers. This programme presents works by some key players in the development of the organ and its music in Germany, not least, of course, Bach himself.
