E. Power Biggs organ CD on Sony
Brandenburg Concertos by Marriner on Philips
Art of the Fuge by Marriner
Complete Liturgical Year cantata box by La Petit Bande
B minor mass, and St John Passion by Jochum
St Matthew Passion on Naxos

I bought all the keyboard works by Gould but I haven't had time to listen to them in depth. If I had to buy them again I'd choose some different pianists. My latest Bach CD is the Motets by Rene Jacobs. I don't think the recording sounds all that great with the volume turned up so I need to try some other versions. Maybe Koopman, or the Naxos recording.

I'm looking for another ensemble recording of The Art of the Fugue. Preferably something with some winds and not overly string dominated. I came across a great recording like this a few years ago but I've forgotten the ensemble. It had some great sounding bassoons.

Mandryka, I found that one on YouTube. Not the same recording I had in mind but it sounds good. I actually uploaded an excerpt of the other recording in a long thread here that I can't seem to locate with the search engine. Maybe it got deleted in one of the crashes? It was a more recent and rather pricey recording.
