This remarkable 16-disc set of the complete organ works of Johann Sebastian Bach is outstanding in absolutely every way; there is simply no other way to say it. Margaret Phillips has long been regarded as one of the most outstanding performers of her generation, and with every note recorded in this series, the listener can hear how deservedly she is acclaimed throughout the world for her refined, polished performances. Her recordings here are the most elegant, beautiful realizations of the works of the great master that I have ever had the pleasure to hear (and I own five other complete Bach series!). There is absolutely nothing not to love about this series: the performances range from magnificently grand and stately, to sublimely sensitive and delicate.

Each instrument has been very carefully selected, and the accompanying booklets are packed with information about the organs, the towns in which they are located, detailed information about the registrations used in every piece, and several wonderful full-color photographs. Regent have really out done themselves in the presentation here, and it is simply impossible to successfully single out one or two individual discs as the most deserving of purchase recordings of such integrity and quality come along rarely in a lifetime, and this series is one which I simply would not wish to be without. If you really cannot manage to acquire the complete set at one time, perhaps treat yourself to Volume Seven at first, and I guarantee that the realization of O Gott du frommer Gott (BWV 767) will leave you craving the other discs in the series. Mortgage the farm, sell blood plasma, do whatever is necessary, but 'The Sixteen' belong in your collection!
