Bach organ works have long been one of my greatest passions. It has quite simply far exceeded my expectations and hopes. Simon Preston's Bach, while not as colorful as Peter Hurford's, who plays more with interestingly idiosyncratic organ sounds (for example, an organ stop that plays what sounds like chimes on some of the chorale preludes), is vital and tends toward lighter textures, so that the listener is not wallowing in tidal waves of sound. Also, Preston uses lighter phrasing that I think of as "historically informed," that is, notes at the ends of phrases are shortened. Essentially, less of a heavy, romantic approach. For me this lighter touch makes this music easier to hear.

The six works catalogued as BWV 592–596 are arrangements which were realised by Johann Sebastian Bach as part of his Weimar concerto transcriptions.
