Welcome Back from the Conservatory Library Staff

We're so glad you're here!!

New Reference Book - Index of chorale melodies in the works of Johann Sebastian Bach

The music of Johann Sebastian Back is intimately linked to the Lutheran chorale. These simple and popular hymns have since inspired countless composers. Papillon has painstakingly listed the chorale melodies used by Bach and all their occurrences in his works. This index may be Ariadne's thread through the wonderful labyrinth that is the music of Bach!
