Description:

The book is a deep examination of Bach's very creative process, based on first looking at how he transformed the texts for the cantatas and vocal works into musical motifs, and then looking at how that process can be regarded as a basis for gaining a deeper appreciation and understanding of the purely instrumental works. (Joe Armstrong)
