This CD is a worthy addition to David Goode’s Bach series, recorded on a fine modern organ. The main pillars are the ‘Dorian’ Toccata & Fugue BWV 538, the A minor Concerto after Vivaldi BWV 593, and the ‘Wedge’ Prelude & Fugue in E minor BWV 548, with four chorale preludes, Trio Sonata no.4, and the Trio in G, this last a fine 18th-century organ arrangement of the gamba sonata movement. Goode has an unerring instinct for exactly the right tempi, and his interpretations are always thoroughly musical and interesting. George Parsons writes scholarly programme notes (although more thorough proof-reading was required).
