Johann Sebastian Bach is regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. His music is revered for its technical command, artistic beauty, and intellectual depth. However, during his lifetime Bach was best known throughout Europe as an organist, Organ consultant, and composer of Organ works in both the traditional German free genres—such as preludes, fantasias, and toccatas—and stricter forms, such as chorale preludes and fugues. During his most productive period (1708–14) he composed about a dozen pairs of preludes and fugues, five toccatas and fugues, and the Little Organ Book, an unfinished collection of forty-six short chorale preludes that demonstrates compositional techniques in the setting of chorale tunes.

Essential Organ Works Of Bach includes Toccata And Fugue In D Minor BWV 565, Passacaglia And Fugue In C Minor BWV 582, Concerto in A minor 'after Vivaldi' BWV 593, Fantasia in G 'Piéce d'Orgue' BWV 572, In dulci jubilo BWV 729, Liebster Jesu, wir sind hier BWV 731, Prelude and Fugue in Eb BWV 552, Prelude and Fugue in G BWV 541, Vater unser im Himmelreich BWV 683 and Watchet auf, ruft uns die Stimme BWV 645. A must-have collection for any organist!
