Johann Sebastian Bach: Sämtliche Kantaten, Motetten, Choräle undGeistliche Lieder The complete cantatas, chorales and motets in study editions in 19 volumes. This special edition exclusively offers the authoritative text of the New Bach Edition meeting Bärenreiter Urtext standards. It is well presented on high quality paper and has a durable sewn binding. A MUST for everyone who is passionate about Bach´s music! No group of works in Johann Sebastian Bach’s output is as wide-ranging as the cantatas. This is hardly surprising considering that for over five years Bach was required to compose a work, or at least re-work an existing one, for every Sunday and festival of the church year, as well as for numerous secular occasions such as council inaugurations, school and university celebrations and royal birthdays. Unfortunately, not all cantatas have survived. However, over 200 sacred and secular works exist and form a corpus of works suitable for all possible occasions. This rich musical heritage is still as relevant today as it was then. Bärenreiter‘s unique edition, which encompasses more than 11,000 pages, includes all cantatas together with the motets, chorales and sacred songs in the Urtext of the ‘New Bach Edition’ (NBA Series I and III). As a special extra, the recently rediscovered aria ‘ Alles mit Gott und nichts ohn ’ ihn ’ is also included. Only available here is an additional volume with an introduction (German/English) by Christoph Wolff and an index. - The complete Bach cantatas, motets, chorales and sacred songs together in a set - Urtext from the New Bach Edition - With an introduction by Christoph Wolff (German/English) - Clear notation, excellent layout, compact format (16.5 x 22.5 cm).

Reviews

"All cultured, musical people should have this set of scores on their book shelves. The print quality is, as one would expect of Bärenreiter, superb and the production standards are faultless.

Buy it. You'll never regret it."
