Johann Sebastian Bach, St. John Passion : genesis, transmission, and meaning by Alfred Dürr( Book )

13 editions published between 1988 and 2002 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a guide to the genesis, transmission, structure, and performance considerations of Bach's St. John Passion." "The St. John Passion is one of Bach's most fascinating works. Its text demonstrates a profound understanding of St. John's Gospel. The musical design of the choruses, with their numerous interrelationships, is unique and requires some explanation. The fact that the Passion exists in four different versions leads Durr to ask which changes were intentional and which were the result of practical constraints or of orders issued by church authorities." "The introduction to the work is preceded by a detailed account of its genesis and transmission, and the uniquely complicated nature of the sources. The discussion of the Passion itself is based on the assumption that what Bach wanted to say to the Leipzig congregation on Good Friday was designed to be understood in verbal and musical terms. Number symbolism, 'eye music', and encrypted information do not form the essence of what Bach was trying to communicate to us."--BOOK JACKET
