Alma Hamilton from Stamford CT

While I am delighted that this station is according to Bach the honor which he deserves, I am distressed by the fact that (so far) 3 of his substantial organ works, the Little g minor fugue, the St Anne, and the chorale prelude "Dies sind die heiligen zehn Gebot", are being presented in orchestral transcriptions; the organ was good enough for the composer, and yet the impression given is that these works "needed something more"!
