Critics' Comments

Journal of the Association of Anglican Musicians John presents a program of well-known Bach works and plays brilliantly, bringing out the glory of the Flentrop and the superb acoustic of the Busch ... As a bonus, there are two non-audio items on Biggs and the Flentrop, accessible if one has a CD-ROM drive on a computer. - Victor Hill


The American Organist Organist John Ayer takes us (and the Memphis Chamber Singers) with him on his nostalgic trip to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the death of E. Power Biggs ... The CD-EXTRA files can be opened on a computer’s CD drive ... It is nostalgia at its finest, and Bach at its best. - Paul Aldridge


The American Record Guide “These Bach performances have a distinct artistic viewpoint ... in his playing there is an admirable consistency of polish, fineness, and subtlety of articulation ... Ayer’s registrations have been chosen to make the organ sound splendid, and it has been nicely recorded by Pro Organo.” - Mulbury
