Bach: Attributions
The Archive service is for CDs which have been deleted and where the musical content is not otherwise available.

(If a CD is scheduled for re-issue within the next 3-4 months, the message 'To be reissued on …' will replace the 'Buy Archive CD' button.)

This service offers a production-quality CDR with printed label, inlay (tray) card and, at the minimum, a 2pp booklet (including cover artwork and complete track listing), packaged in a normal jewel case.

In many instances we will provide complete printed booklets, but please note that this is not always the case. Pricing is £13.99 per CD, regardless of the original sale price of the disc(s).

The music of Bach has been of central importance to Christopher Herrick throughout his career. This recording is the final volume of his series which surveys all of Bach's organ works on Metzler organs in Switzerland. All of the music on this disc has at one time or another been attributed to J S Bach, but it is now generally thought to be the work of others. However, in only a few cases has it been possible to identify positively the actual composer. The nature of transmitting music in manuscript form during this period and the many members of the Bach family who composed has only added to the confusion. Many of the present pieces have come down to us in manuscript collections which also contain works which are verifably the work of Johann Sebastian—hence the title of this recording, 'Bach Attributions'.
