Harald Vogel eschews personal additions through analogical constructions, preferring instead to keep the user close to the original. This reprises the practice of his editions of Scheidt's "Tabulatura nova" and of Sweelinck's works. In the preface, a detailed commentary offers a discussion of the authorship of two dubious works that were included in the Appendix. There are also two lengthy essays focusing on the most important aspects of notation, interpretation and original instruments.
"Harald Vogel's edition of Bruhns' organ works provides organists with a very useful and detailed score for this exciting repertoire that is recommended for every organist's library. The rich discussion of scholarly information are needed by the performer to make informed musical decisions." (HORP Report)
