Anton Heiller (1923-1979) was one of the great organists of his time. He was also renowned as a keyboard improviser in the tradition of Bach himself, as evidenced in many of the recordings he made for Vanguard Classics.

Vanguard Classics remade this collection of organ warhorses from J.S. Bach (1675-1750) in 2004, redoing their earlier failed stereo collection that originally included the Bach warhorse of all warhorses, the Tocatta and Fuuge in D minor BWV 565. Thankfully, Vangauard left it out of this collection.

The Austrian organist Anton Heiller made this recording on Vangaurd HM 73 and it was also issued as Bach Guild BGS-70675. For the performance on this recording, he selected the organ at the St. Mary Church in Helsingborg in Sweden. It was previously available on CD in the Organ Works by Bach and other recordings of variable quality. This version is the best-sounding one yet, produced by Artemus Records, which purchased the Vanguard Classics line from Omega Records in 2003. A lengthy discussion on this is included in the well-written but difficult to read seven pages of notes that accompany this issue.

Is This Volume 1 or 2?
When putting together the materials for this reissue, a problem arose immediately - why is Volume 2 listed as Volume 1? And why is Volume 1 not the Volume 1 listed in our recording index? And why is no Volume 1 noted on the Volume 1 jacket? Devoted Vanguard followers and collectors - whose letters and emails were the deciding factor in our decision to reissue these Heiller recordings - are always eager to point out such errors.
The Organ Works of J.S. Bach, Vol. 1 was assigned to the first recording of Bach's organ music that Heiller recorded for Vanguard, Bach-Vivaldi: Organ Works, BG 637 (mono)/BG 5049 (stereo) after the title was released. The original LP packaging for this title has no indication of any volumes to come in the future. The issue of The Organ Works of J.S. Bach, Vol. 2, BG-674 (mono) and BG 70674 (stereo) was referred to on the original tape boxes and recording "matrix cards" as The Organ Works ol J.S Bach, Vol. 1. Internal documents at Vanguard also refer to this as Volume 1. But when it was issued on LP, it was very distinctly issued as Volume 2. And the recording referred to as Volume 2 was issued to the public on LP as Volume 3 (BG 675/70675).
On our cover, we have skirted the issue by simply listing the works. We have, however, placed the LP cover on the back the packaging to help allay any confusion. But when again, we have included a copy of the original box in the internal packaging to offer complete disclosure and probably create just a bit more confusion.
