As well as being an authoritative resource for scholars, students and performers, this volume provides the ordinary Bach/Baroque music enthusiast with information not usually found in programme or sleeve notes, exploring the life and works of Bach and the historical context in which he lived. Topics covered include: genres (for example chorales), structures (such as fugue), individual works (like St John Passion), compositional practices and techniques, people and places, institutions, instruments, performing practice, festivals and performers, reception of Bach's music, stylistic influence and parodies, and Bach scholarship. The main alphabetical text is supplemented by useful endmatter, including a family tree, chronology, list of works, openings of vocal works and a glossary of specialist terms.
