INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM: UNDERSTANDING BACH'S B-MINOR MASS

Belfast, 2-4 November 2007


Abstract

J.S. Bach’s Mass in B minor: Observations and Hypotheses with regard to Some Original Sources

Hans-Joachim Schulze

(Bach-Archiv Leipzig, Germany)

The original sources of the Missa (BWV 232I) show title pages whose scorings are incomplete (autograph score, Berlin P 180) or even wrong (Dresden, dedicatory set of performing parts). An attempt is made to explain these curiosities by hypotheses which may shed some light on the origin of the sources mentioned above as well as on their internal chronology.
