Orgelbüchlein & More Works by J.S. Bach (1685–1750)

Robert Clark & John David Peterson at the Fritts Op. 12 Organ Hall, Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ

J.S. Bach began his Orgelbüchlein—a systematic compilation of hymn-based organ preludes—in 1713, and included in it revised versions of some pieces that may date from as early as 1710. For this "little organ book" he ruled an entire notebook—some 184 pages—with musical lines and placed titles of 165 chorales on them. He worked on the collection off and on for about two years and then, curiously, abandoned it, leaving about two-thirds of the already titled pages blank. He returned to the project briefly sometime during his years in Cöthen (1717–1723), when he added the title page; in around 1740, when he revised two preludes (BWV 620 and 631), he added BWV 613 and the barest beginning of another prelude.

Contains two music CDs.
