This performing edition corresponds to the complete edition volume of the “ New Bach Edition” published in 2007, BA 5290 (Series IV, Vol. 10). It includes organ works based on chorales surviving in various sources. Some of these works were not previously included in the “ New Bach Edition” either for reasons of doubtful authenticity or because they were unknown until now. Two pieces from this repertoire – the two arrangements of “ Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern” BWV 739 and 764 – stem from one of Bach’s autograph manuscripts.
They had been omitted until recently because of doubts of authenticity.
This edition contains a foreword (Ger/Eng) as well as 8 facsimile pages. It complements the performing edition of the complete organ works in nine volumes (BA 5179).
