Ten of Johann Sebastian Bachís Preludes and Fugues, performed from the edition prepared by Karl Straube, one-time cantor at St Thomas Leipzig.

In 1913, Karl Straube published his edition of ten Preludes and Fugues by Johann Sebastian Bach, who had been his illustrious predecessor as cantor as St Thomasís Church in Leipzig. The late Romantic editionís detailed performance instructions Ė including fingering, dynamics, phrasing, articulation, and registration Ė make it a seminal milestone in the performance history of Bachís organ works.

Dean Billmeyer gives listeners an impression of what Bach sounded like when the Romantic era was still the present. Billmeyer is appointed professor at the University of Minnesota. At this university he is the successor to Heinrich Fleischer, a disciple of Karl Straube.

Perfromed on:
- Sauer organ of St Michaelís Church, Leipzig, 1904
- Sauer organ of the City Church, Bad Salzungen, 1909
