This DVD features organist Ullrich Böhme performing favorite organ works by J. S. Bach on the restored 1889 Sauer organ at St. Thomas Church, Leipzig, Germany. St. Thomas is best known as the church where Bach served as cantor from 1723 until his death in 1750, and is now his final resting place. Viewers will be treated to a close-up view of organ and organist, which would be unlikely in a recital setting.
