The Organ in St Martin’s Church
Worcester - England, UK
An incredible programme of masterworks by "the great man himself" - Johann Sebastian Bach - transcribed for concert organ solo by Thomas Heywood.
The American Organist, the world’s largest organ magazine, says it all...
"He’s done it again! Thomas Heywood has become one of the world’s most prolific organ recording artists. By popular demand, this one is ALL-BACH - with several Bach organ transcriptions. This brilliantly played Bach is a delight. The featured organ is also one of the best, recent organ ’finds’ in all of the UK."
Programme highlights include:
Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D major Sinfonia from Cantata No. 29 Violin Concerto No. 2 in E major Aria - "Erbarme dich" from the St Matthew Passion Italian Concerto
