In April 1993, KBYU traveled to eastern Germany with Dr. Douglas E. Bush, noted Bach scholar, organist, and professor of music in the BYU School of Music. Numerous organs were played and recorded for this compact disk. All were associated with Johann Sebastian Bach and mostly located in small villages (Buessleben, Walthershausen, Graefenhain, Arnstadt, Dornheim, Elxleben, Dornburg, Stoermtal, Pontitz and Altenberg).

Many of these instruments have not been previously recorded and provide a valuable document of the superb instruments built around the areas frequented by the inimitable Bach. Musical selections are composed by J.S. Bach, J.C. Bach, Boehm, Scheidt, Walther, Pachelbel, and Buttstedt.
