It is not a lexicon providing information on all the major aspects of Bachs life and work, such as the Oxford Composer Companion: J. S. Bach. Nor is it an entry-level research tool aimed at those making a beginning of such studies. The valuable essays presented here are designed for the next level of Bach research and are aimed at masters and doctoral students, as well as others interested in coming to terms with the current state of Bach research. Each author covers three aspects within their specific subject area; firstly, to describe the results of research over the past thirty-fifty years, concentrating on the most significant and controversial, such as: the debate over Smends NBA edition of the B minor Mass; Blumes conclusions with regard to Bachs religion in the wake of the new chronology; Rifkins one-to-a-vocal-part interpretation; the rediscovery of the Berlin Singakademie manuscripts in Kiev; the discovery of hitherto unknown manuscripts and documents and the re-evaluation of previously known sources. Secondly, each author provides a critical analysis of current research being undertaken that is exploring new aspects, reinterpreting earlier assumptions, and/or opening-up new methodologies. For example, Martin W. B. Jarvis has suggested that Anna Magdalena Bach composed the cello suites and contributed to other works of her husband - another controversial hypothesis, whose newly proposed forensic methodology requires investigation. On the other hand, research into Bachs knowledge of the Lutheran chorale tradition is currently underway, which is likely to shed more light on the composers choices and usage of this tradition. Thirdly, each author identifies areas that are still in need of investigation and research. FORMAT Hardcover CONDITION Brand New Author Biography Robin A.

All in all, this research companion represents a fine achievement." --Robert Manning, The Consort Early Music Journal, vol.74, Summer 2018 Details ISBN1409417905 ISBN-10 1409417905 ISBN-13 9781409417903 Format Hardcover Imprint Ashgate Publishing Limited Place of Publication Aldershot Country of Publication United Kingdom DEWEY 780.92 Publisher Taylor & Francis Ltd Edited by Robin A.
