    Default The Bach Guild mega box kaput? Get them while you can!

    The Bach Guild mega box cheap download people had a very busy last few years. Then after announcing many upcoming plans, they went silent and have been so for several months. They have missed promised deadlines. And ceased communications with customers, judging from customer comments. They still maintain a facebook page but stopped posting there some months back. Downloads still are offered on Amazon and at Classics Select. The Classics Select downloads have varied in price recently for as low as $.39. Right now they are at $.60.

    Company defunct? Who knows. I would suggest grabbing up anything you may be interested in soon as who knows what they may do. My guess, if the company is no more, that they would leave downloads available but who knows.

    As a side note, the Classics Select people also offer a lot of other downloads besides Bach Guild. They have a number of the VoxBox mega sets also. This month everything seems to be $.60. I recommend the Romantic Piano Concerto sets and the Rachmaninoff solo piano works, but there are so many others. Even if only one piece of music in the set appeals to you, it is worth the price. Classic Select also has CD's and I have purchased these also at times.

    Good advice. This is essentially free music.

    Good reminder! Don't forget The Big Mahler box--13 hours of music for .99¢! The Vox boxes also sound excellent and would be bargains at even twice the price. One could stock a library on a shoestring budget. I found the performances and sound quality to be excellent overall even if not always played by big-name performers. The Baroque boxes are also quite excellent. I have most of the Bach Guild releases.

    The Haydn Symphonies box is excellent too.

    Someone could spend under $50 US and have most major classical works.
