In contrast to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, very little was known about Johann Sebastian Bach's early years until recently. His early works, such as the cantataChrist lag in Todesbandenand the famous Toccata in D minor, reveal a composer who achieved mastery at a young age but not the route to this status.

In Weimar , Peter Wollny and Michael Maul have discovered copies of works by Dietrich Buxtehude and Johann Adam Reinken made by Bach between the ages of twelve and fifteen.

This publication contains facsimiles followed by a transcription of the original tablature notation as a critical edition. It includes an extensive foreword which describes the source and the likely conditions in which Bach made the transcriptions. This publication provides the first reliable edition of Reinken'sAn Wasserflussen Babylonand the earliest source of Buxtehude'sNun freut euch , lieben Christen g'mein. Two chorale preludes by Pachelbel set the performing practice scene of the time; the numerous ornaments are probably even by Bach himself.


- Scholarly-critical edition of the earliest known music manuscripts in Bach's hand
- Significant works from the 17th century North German organ repertoire

    This is a scholar’s big find. Bach’s earliest transcriptions of J.A. Reincken, Pachelbel and Buxtehude. Aside from a new interpretation of Reincken’s “An Wasserflussen Babylon” I didn’t find much of the pieces that exciting save for the last piece, Pachelbel’s “Fugue”. Others may find...

    the other transcriptions worthy of performance, but I did not. Overall, though, a great find for musicologists, especially.
