The Orgelbüchlein Project
A major international composition project which completes J S Bach’s Orgelbüchlein (Little Organ Book).
The manuscript of the Orgelbüchlein has 118 missing pieces, ghostly gaps with only the title penned by Bach. Each of these gaps is now filled by a new composition based on Bach’s intended chorale melody. The new pieces, written by the most interesting composers at work in Europe today, surveys a wide range of modern styles. The project is curated by organist William Whitehead.
Volume 3 is now available
The Orgelbüchlein Extended
We have now launched The Orgelbüchlein Extended, a growing collection of longer compositions, and those based on alternative melodies, springing from The Orgelbüchlein Project. The Orgelbüchlein Extended compositions are downloadable and only £5 each (all orders processed in pounds Sterling).
