Organ Music

Organ Music

(p.46) Chapter 4 Organ Music

Malcolm Boyd

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the organ music of Johann Sebastian Bach. Most of the organ music that can be heard today originated during Bach's Weimar years and was no doubt connected in some way to his duties as court organist there. After 1717, he never again held an organist's post but he continued composing for recitals and dedication ceremonies. He was not initially interested in arranging his organ music in sets, and he only did so starting from 1727.

Keywords:   Johann Sebastian Bach, organ music, Weimar, recitals, dedication ceremonies, musical composition
