Explanatory commentary is provided by Harvard University musicologist Christoph Wolff, a noted Bach scholar and author of a comprehensive Bach biography, Johann Sebastian Bach: The Learned Musician. The historically-focused tonal character of the 97-rank Fisk pipe organ from 1979 is particularly well suited to this repertoire.
