BOGREAT TITCHFIELD ST, Preface ‘The appreciation of Bach as a tremendous force in the progress of Music has been growing steadily during the last fifty years. The performance of his incomparable works, whose in - fluence flows in an ever widening channel through the whole domai of musical education,tas clearly demonstrated that the practical study of Bach is the gateway to the mastery of tech - nique. It has accomplished still more; for out of the Anowdedge of Bach has grown the fone of Bach, and the love of Bach has helped materially in creating that taste for good music which is so striking a feature of the present and so hopeful a sign for the future.

Whether they be used ax Stud- ies or as Pieces is immaterial as they combine the technical value of the one with thegrace and charm of the other. Any pupil capable of playing a very easy Sonatina may commence the reg- ular study of Bach and thus early learn to love, in simple form, those elements of truth, sin - cerity and refinement which are revealed in every bar of his music; elements at once the source altention to of his greatness and the measure of his power, With the exception of NOS 6.7, 8. 11.12 & 14. all the pieces are from the Clavier Book of Anna Magdalena Bach, the composer's second wife, Some of them were lelt unsigned, a cir. - cumstance which, for a time, caused their authenticity to b nature from works which were undoubtedly geruine was, however, such a common occurrence that this fact alone was not long permitted to stand as evidence of doubt,and the pieces are juestioned.
