Did Bach actually spend much time in Amsterdam or in the Netherlands in general? I'm just wondering. Maybe I should search this...

Why would you design such a modern looking instrument for this space?! It looks so out of character with the rest of the sanctuary! such a disappointment for an otherwise awesome instrument.

Kind of hectic interpretation.

I love this tempo!

By: gemshorn on Feb, 20 2013

Tempo is maybe a tiny bit too fast, but after all the sleepers shall wake! Voicing could have been different, bringing out the chorale on a distinct reed... But it's an overall nice version, cleanly played.

Nicely played, but the stop choice for the right-hand seems a little too forward and insistent for my tastes.
