Publisher. Info. Bach-Gesellschaft Ausgabe, Band 27
Leipzig: Breitkopf und Härtel, 1879. Plate B.W. XXVII.
Misc. Notes Because it was not available for consultation at the time, the editor of this score did not use Bach's autograph manuscript as a source for the Bach-Gesellschaft edition. The BG edition therefore contains occasional differences from the autograph. Perfomers are urged to consult the J.S. Bach autograph, or a modern critical edition, to settle questions of interpretation (especially in matters of phrasing and articulation).
