Summary
  • "What type of choir did Bach have in mind as he created his cantatas, Passions and masses? How many singers were at his disposal in Leipzig, and in what ways did he deploy them in his own music?" "Seeking to understand the very medium of Bach's incomparable choral output, Andrew Parrott investigates a wide range of sources: Bach's own writings, and the scores and parts he used in performance, but also a variety of theoretical, pictorial and archival documents, together with the musical testimony of the composer's forerunners and contemporaries."
  • "Many of the findings shed a surprising, even disturbing light on conventions we have long taken for granted. A whole world away from, say, the typical oratorio choir of Handel's London with which we are reasonably familiar, the essential Bach choir was in fact an expert vocal quartet (or quintet) whose members were also responsible for all solos and duets." "As one of several valuable appendices, this book includes the text of Joshua Rifkin's explosive 1981 lecture, never before published, which first set out this line of thinking and launched a controversy that is long overdue for resolution."--Jacket
