    Buxtehude organ works

    I've been looking at buying this boxed set

    http://www.selections.com/BX791/buxt...text=Buxtehude

    Has anybody got this version? Most of the other "complete organ works" are in individual volumes, is this one worth getting or what others are recommended?

    It is available cheaper on Amazon
    Cheers MIKE.

    Yes, I bought this one for a ridiculously low price in an ordinary music shop last summer.

    My advice is: TAKE IT!

    Inspired playing in stylus fantasticus by Ulrik Spang-Hanssen.
    Only if you want 'your' Buxtehude to be more severe, Harald Vogel might be a better option (and Vogel also does more 'spurious' stuff, if I remember well; just too lazy to check it out ).

    But: CONSIDER THIS PRIZE ..... and then: buy it!

    Here's a link of another trustworthy online shop:

    G'day Mike, looks very nice. Here's something that might compliment that CD set very nicely, I think.

    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    What organ(s) does Ulrik Spang-Hanssen play on his set?
    “The aim and final end of all music should be none other than the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul.”
    -Johann Sebastian Bach, 1685-1750

    "It Don't Mean A Thing If It Ain't Got That Swing."
    -Duke Ellington, 1899-1974
