Misc. Notes This is not a scientific critical edition, it's just an engraving made for study purpose. The main sources used are the parts manuscript available on IMSLP, conserevd in Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin (Mus. ms. 30199, Faszikel 14). There are major incoherences between dynamics in parts, so that a dynamic indication doesn't appear at the same time in all parts, or the written dynamics are different. I tried to make them homogeneous and coherent, but other sources would be necessary to know Bach's real intents. The same can be said about slurs, although this aspect has fewer (and less serious) issues. A more pondered edition is currently printed by Carus Verlag.
