        Barenreiter is clearly a superior edition to Novello or Peters. It contains the original notation, and any that have been added are clearly marked. It is beautifully set out, and has excellent notes on the peices.

        The Bach Organ Sonatas, which comprise the majority of this book, are widely recognised to be some of the very hardest repertoire for organ. Indeed, what is arguably the easiest movement of any of them (the Largo from Sonata No. 2 in Cmin) is currently listed for Grade 7 in the ABRSM syllabus. They are all undeniably beautiful however and between them comprise arguably some of the finest counterpoint ever written. The other individual pieces in the book (which include the famous Passagchalia in Cmin) are perhaps more approachable, though the overall difficulty remains high: the book may prove unsatisfying to the beginner / intermediate organist.
