I am a bonified Bach scholar and this book is always at my side for quick reference. It is an excellent piece of scholarship by a leading expert; nicely bound, legible, printed on very good paper. It contains many short entries: translations of all period records and writings, newspaper reports and other documents pertaining to Bach's biography. Excellent index.

This is one of the best resources for reading from primary source documents about Bach that there is. There is great detail about Bach here from his contemporaries and even his kids. For anyone who is a Bach junkie, this book is a must have. It is a great book.

This is a must read and an important baseline when beginning to read what others write about Bach and his life.

Excellently organized through a conspectus that allowed me to scan down a list of all the documents and go then to the ones that were most interesting to me. The conspectus is in the same order as the book, and functions as an archival finding guide. A great reference work, very glad I have it.
