The new spiral–bound Dahn Edition of the Bach Chorales is now available! Arranged by BWV number, this new 219–page edition of 420 Bach four–part chorales is the most comprehensive edition available, containing nearly 70 settings that are left out of the popular Riemenschneider edition. Each meticulously–notated chorale, presented with its original German text, is accompanied with thorough contextual information, just as presented here at b– The 41–page appendix includes many of the resources available on the Resources page, including indexes by chorale melody title, by chorale tune composers and origins, by melody (scale–degree), by chorale text and author, by liturgical occasion, and by date of first performance. Also included are cross references between the collections like the Riemenschneider and the Schmieder (BWV) catalogue, as well as listings of chorales omitted and duplicated in the Riemenschneider, and a table giving colla parte and obbligato instrumentation information.
