    Thumbs up

    Here are the JS Bach Chorales ... enjoy.

    For the convenience for my American friends, they are in US letter format, landscape. To print in A4, choose automatic output to A4 from your printer's dialog box.

    [Edit: 01/05/2008 merged latest additions]

    Again, three more opals. [12/30/07]
    Two more treasures. [12/30/07]
    four more beauties. [12/31/07]
    three more [01/01/08]
    Two more treasures [01/02/08] (I'm not over Bach typsetting yet ...)
    One more beauty [01/04/08]
    One more jewell [01/04/08]
    Two more treasures [01/05/08]
    Merged 6 more [10/02/08]

    I now present two missing Chorales (BWV 630 and 631), can't understand why though - I obviously had a senior moment.

    Here's a couple more ...

    One more (BWV 639) one of my favourites, so beautiful.

    One more (BWV 640)

    Come on now, alto clef isn't that unfathomable! (trust me, I play viola too).

    No alto clef here, but delicious inner parts

    Thanks Krummhorn, here's one more (more alto clef reading required!)

    And this is the LAST one in the set (thank goodness).

    And the devinely beautiful Schübler Chorale No. 1 is here for the enjoyment of all. It's not fiendishly difficult so most modest organists should be able to give it a whirl. I can even get through it more or less.

    And the fiendishly difficult second Schübler Chorale which is WAY beyond my skills, enjoy:

    And so on and so forth ...

    I can just hear Bach's dialog with his son: "Now CPE, I know your right hand technique is excellent, this will work out your left hand AND feet, get working ..."

    And in a very similar vein (working out left hand and pedal), this finely crafted chorale, which looks like it needs the services of a viola-da-gamba player.

    Phew - the final Schübler Chorale, enjoy!

    Thanks.
    I have allready these works but it may be nice for other organists.
    This give me the following idea :
    start a thread for "PDF score help" wher we could ask for a score or send a PDF to a friend, while respecting copyright rules of course.
    I do it at once.
    Friendly yours. Jean-Paul

    Thanks for this idea but I need to wait a while before I can print any
    of those pieces. They do look appetizing for an amature like me.

    My German is quite rusty, so I consulted an online translator for help. The rough translation of the above German into English is:

    "empty sheets in the Autograph [signature?] for the Choräle"

    These chorales form part of the "Little Organ Book". Used by the great master to teach the art of improvisation (on a hymn tune), can't remember which of his sons it was aimed at ... but I'm sure some Einstein here will fill in this knowledge gap.

    Hi CT64,

    In Christoph Wolff's seminal work "J.S.Bach, The Learned Musician" pg.226, Dr. Wolff points to Wilhelm Friedeman Bach as the beneficiary of the Orgel-Büchlein, among other things. Dr. Wolff also posits that JSBach provided samples of these works when he applied for a position at the Thomaskirche in Leipzig.

    Hope that will wet your whistle a bit

    Cheers,

    Corno Dolce

    Judy ... BWV 599 one of th easiest to master in the set of Little Organ Book works. It's five up from the bottom in my list. Annoyingly I can't seem to get them to appear in numeric order ... will have to work that through with one of the moderators and some cunning scheming.
