9780195165562: J.S. Bach's Great Eighteen Organ Chorales

On the 250th anniversary of the composer's death, this volume offers an in-depth look at the "Great Eighteen" organ chorales, among the most celebrated works for organ, and a milestone in the history of the chorale. Addressed to organists, scholars, and general listeners alike, this lucid and engaging book examines the music from a wide spectrum of historical and analytical perspectives.

Stinson examines the models used by Bach in conceiving the original pieces, his subsequent compilation of these works into a collection, and his compositional process as preserved by the autograph manuscript. Himself an accomplished organist, Stinson also considers various issues of performance practice and concludes with a discussion of the music's reception--its dissemination in manuscript and printed form, its performance history, and its influence on later composers. Completely up-to-date and presenting a wealth of new material, much of it translated into English for the first time, this study will open up fresh perspectives on some of the composer's greatest creations.

About the Author:


Russell Stinson is the Josephine Emily Brown Professor of Music and College Organist at Lyon College in Arkansas.

Review:


"Stinson is lucid and well organized, and he includes many high-quality facismiles of the original sources. He gives an up-to-date synthesis of recent scholarship on the collection, in particular of German writings that may be unfamiliar to English speakers."--Notes
