BACH: ‘THE GREAT 18 CHORALES’
Renée Anne Louprette, organist (Acis Productions, two CDs)
This towering late collection of chorale preludes is not entry-level Bach, least of all for those unfamiliar with the chorale tunes themselves. But the music rewards deep immersion, and the performances by Renée Anne Louprette, one of New York’s finest organists, invite it.
