About the Author

Johann Sebastian Bach (1685–1750) was a prolific German composer and organist whose sacred and secular works for choir, orchestra, and solo instruments exemplify the heart and soul of the Baroque period. A revival of interest in his music and its performance began early in the 19th century and continues to this day. He now ranks among the greatest composers in the Western tradition.

Spitta on Bach, 19th century expert, volume I, is a useful though dated reference for student's of Bach' music. More current publications, such as Gardiner's 'Music in the Castle of Heaven' increase our understanding.

Format: Paperback
This is volume 2 of a 3 volume work. Unfortunately you can't tell that from the product description unless you read the cover page very carefully. Volume 2 is 700+ pages long. I have not been able to find volumes 1 and 3. Would not have purchased this had I known it wasn't the "complete" Spitta. ("Unabridged" shown on the web site is "Unabridged-in 3 volumes" when you're able to read the cover of the book).
