These recordings were a constant companion when I was an undergraduate. I feared they were inaccessible for ever. But here they are, digitized, and as wonderful as I remembered them. They are straightforward enterpetations of the engraved notes, on two remarkable instruments that have survived from Bach’s time. There can never be only one perfect rendition, but these will always be on the top level.
