In 1985 Christoph Wolff, working at Yale University, discovered a collection of 82 chorales compiled by Johann Gottfried Neumeister (1756-1840) which contained 38 compositions by Johann Sebastian Bach.  They reveal great stylistic variety whose forebears stem from the Northern German organ tradition.  Already these early works comprising fantasias, fugues, fughettas and imitative techniques employing motifs from chorale melodies bear witness to Bach’s broad compositional spectrum.

With the completion of the New Bach Edition where all sources have now been exhaustively researched, Bärenreiter presents the definitive edition of Bach‘s organ works.  A superb foundation for everyone interested in the authentic performance of Bach‘s organ music.
