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

We are experiencing a delay in the production of Volume 1. We estimate that we will have copies by end June. If you have a coupon code, it will now remain valid until end August 2024.

Please sign up to our CONTACT LIST  and we will email you when it is available available.

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).
