This chapter examines developments in the musical career of Johann Sebastian Bach in Leipzig during the period from 1723 to 1730. In 1723, Bach took his family to Leipzig when he was appointed Kantor at the Saint Thomas School. This chapter clarifies that contrary to claims by English-language writers Bach was never professionally connected with the Thomaskirche, the church adjacent to the school building where Bach and his family had their lodgings.

Keywords:   Johann Sebastian Bach, musical career, Leipzig, Saint Thomas School, cantor
