I own nearly all of the available complete and near-complete sets of Bach's organ works, having studied them myself years ago. Vernet's playing is on the swift side, lively and with a good deal of originality without quirkiness. The instruments are very well recorded and suit the music well. Price is half of that of Karol Golebiowski's set, which is also quite good, though not preferable to Vernet in my opinion.

Olivier Vernet is a virtuoso organist. There is no other word that better described him. And this collection include all of Bach's Organ works: Preludes, Fugues, Fantasias, Toccatas, Toccata and Fugues, Passacaglia and Fugue, Concertos, Sonatas, and even Concertos for 2, 3, and 4 organs.

The only thing I have to say negative about this is the Toccata and Fugue in D min - BWV. 565 (Most famous for it's constant usage for haunted houses, etc.) The toccata section is the most famous part, and it's not played very well. Personally, I feel that the song is so overplayed that Mr. Vernet wanted to play it a little differently, and the song suffers as a result.

However, this is a masterpiece work! Do NOT let that one song turn you completely away from this collection.

This is a set of Bach monumental works for organ that will appeal to non- organ specialists as well as professional organists. Of all the sets I've heard - including two of the three by Marie Claire Alain, Vernet reigns supreme. His instruments, his registers, his voices all add distinct character that complements his superb interpretations. The variety holds my interest in a way that other sets do not. Bach created a universe of his own in these magnificent works. Vernet allows us to experience the wonder of experiencing Bach's universe.
