Classical Music

Post by FrostEOne » Tue Sep 04, 2018 9:47 am

I've been into music for 50+ years, think now it's time for some classical influence.
I've always liked pipe organ music in church, would someone please recommend a few albums with pipe organ music.
Advice as to where to purchase them would be helpful as well, my usual sources don't carry much if any classical music.
Thanks in advance, Mark B

If you like big church music start with Bach, Toccata and Fugue in D minor and see where you end up. There's plenty of Back organ concertos to sample.

To be honest I'd use Spotify to search out music and then buy what you like.
One more Paradise left to complete.

Here's where I'm starting:

Bach, J.S.: Great Organ Works By Peter Hurford - 2 CD (Contains Bach, Toccata and Fugue in D minor)
Buxtehude: L'Oeuvre D'Orgue Complete Organ Works By Rene Saorgin

From what I've read, Kraft and Saorgin are strict literalists, should be a good starting point for me.
