Format: Paperback
The Bach family, perhaps Germany's most illustrious musical name, included an amazing variety of musicians. With chapters on most of the major Bach composers, I found the chapters on J.S. Bach, C.P.E. Bach and W.F. Bach especially interesting.

There are also some valuable biographies of earlier Bach's such as Johann Christoph Bach, a contemporary with Pachabel and Johann Michael Bach, the father-in-law of Johann Sebastion.

With each composer, a comprehensive list is provided of the extant as well as compositions known to have been composed but are apparently lost.

Anyone wanting to understand music in Germany during the baroque era will want to check out this book.
