"Byrd was a prominent court composer but also a Catholic. Considering both sacred and secular music and both vocal and instrumental traditions, Brett's essays provide an intimate glimpse into what was unique about Byrd and his music. The selection offered here ranges from the report of Brett's findings on the Paston manuscripts to an unpublished roundtable paper that he delivered a few months before this untimely death, and features his monograph-length study of Byrd's magnum opus, Gradualia."--Jacket

As a young pianist, András Schiff earned wide esteem for his 1980s recordings of the major keyboard works of J.S. Bach; in recent years, as part of his long-term relationship with ECM, he has gone back to Bach as a sage veteran, earning more acclaim for his New Series recordings of the Goldberg Variations (2001) and the Six Partitas (2007). The New York Times said, "Mr. Schiff is, in Bach, a phenomenon. He doesn't so much perform it as emit, breathe it." In August 2011, Schiff turned his focus to the 48 preludes and fugues of The Well-Tempered Clavier, making studio recordings of both books in the Auditorium Radiosvizzera Italiana, Lugano. An iconic inspiration for composers from Mozart and Beethoven to Chopin and Brahms and beyond, The Well-Tempered Clavier has long been considered the Old Testament of the keyboard literature (with Beethoven's piano sonatas as the New Testament). "Schiffs Bach-Spiel ist nicht so motorisiert wie das von Glenn Gould, nicht so geschraubt wie bei Friedrich Gulda. Seine Art des Musizierens wirkt gelöst und gewachsen. Selbst in den Zonen mittlerer Lautstärke findet Schiff stets so viele Abtönungen, dass man damit gleich mehrere Pianisten zu ihrem Vorteil ausrüsten könnte. Diese Aufnahme bildet keinen lauwarmen Neu-Aufguss der in die Jahre gekommenen früheren Einspielung - auch wenn sich Schiff in Vielem treu geblieben ist, etwa bei der Sparsamkeit des Pedaleinsatzes. Doch jetzt wirkt alles noch klarer, noch direkter, noch spontaner, eben gereifter. Wer eine Maßstab setzende Einspielung von Bachs Wohltemperiertem Klavier sucht - hier ist sie!" (
The art of fugue : Bach fugues for keyboard, 1715-1750 by Joseph Kerman( Book )

5 editions published between 2005 and 2016 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fugue for J. S. Bach was a natural language; he wrote fugues in organ toccatas and voluntaries, in masses and motets, in orchestral and chamber music, and even in his sonatas for violin solo. The fugues he wrote for keyboard have long been the foundation of the keyboard repertory, played by beginning students and world-famous virtuosi alike. In a series of essays, Kerman discusses his favorite Bach keyboard fugues - some of them among the best-known and others much less familiar. These witty, insightful pieces, addressed to musical amateurs as well as to specialists and students, are augmented by a CD with new performances made specially for this volume. In addition to the complete scores for all the music discussed in the book, the CD features Karen Rosenak, piano, playing two preludes and fugues from The well-tempered clavier - C Major, book 1; and B Major, book 2 - and recordings by Davitt Moroney of the Fughetta in C Major, BWV 952, on clavichord; the Fugue on "Jesus Christus unser Heiland," BWV 689, on organ; and the Fantasy and fugue in A Minor, BWV 904, on harpsichord
