Oxford Bach Books for Organ: Manuals Only, Book 1
NEW!

This five-volume graded series of organ music by J.S. Bach provides a wonderful selection of pieces for players of all levels and abilities. It includes the essential pieces from all genres, including chorale preludes, preludes and fugues, toccatas, and trio sonata movements, as well as a variety of lesser known works.

Each volume contains a general introduction drawn from Marsden Thomas’s long experience as a teacher, with advice on registration, fingering and footing, touch and articulation, and ornamentation. There are informative Notes on the Pieces by renowned Bach scholar Professor Russell Stinson, addressing source issues, structure and symbolism, and, for the chorale preludes, information on the original hymn melody and text on which it is based.
