From the Rob Baxter music disc 2

"My version of the mighty Dorian Toccata and Fugue is probably my most ambitious transcription I have ever attempted. Obviously, the great Toccata sounds a bit thin when reduced to three voices but the Fugue (I feel) works very well. Listen out for some frantic stereo switching! In the Prelude No. 2, I make extensive use of what I call my 'celestial harp' effect. I developed this technique while working on the Brandenburg Concertos and used it fairly sparingly throughout that disc. It only appears to any great extent in the final movement of No. 5. On this present disc, I have used this effect more widely. See if you can guess how it works. It is really very simple (Hint - if you listen over stereo headphones the effect is completely lost but the method becomes quite clear. This is due to the very sharp stereo separation produced by the Amstrad.) "
