This chapter examines developments in the musical career of Johann Sebastian Bach in Leipzig during the period from 1730 to 1741. The year 1730 was a crucial one for Bach, which culminated in an appeal for help to Georg Erdmann in Danzig. Most of Bach's problems during this time were related to the conflict between civic and universities, low level of resources available for church music, and the low morale among Thomasschule staff and students.

Keywords:   Johann Sebastian Bach, musical career, Georg Erdmann, church music, music school
