An Introduction to Bach Studies is a comprehensive guide to the resources and materials of Bach scholarship, both for students beginning work in the enormous literature on J. S. Bach, and for the Bach specialist looking for a convenient and up-to-date survey of the field. Covering a broad range of both primary and secondary sources, well-known Bach scholars Daniel R. Melamed and Michael Marissen draw on their extensive research experience to describe the principal tools of Bach research and how to use them. With clear descriptions and explanations, the multiple bibliographies and tables help students and instructors quickly find the most appropriate sources on Bach's life, his repertory, approaches to his music, and many other topics. Additionally, this volume provides insights into potentially confusing sources and detailed information on the technical topics important to all Bach scholars. Concise and comprehensive, this user-friendly guide brings together useful bibliographic resources in one place, and is an indispensable resource for all who conduct research on Bach.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"An Introduction to Bach Studies, edited by Daniel Melamed and Michael Marissen, is one of the most useful reference books on Johann Sebastian Bach to have appeared recently. Their personal touch and guidance throughout the various categories of research are engaging. The editors are to be commended for providing so much useful information clearly, intelligently, and concisely."-Notes
"Thanks to Daniel R. Melamed, Michael Marissen, and Oxford University Press, the bibliographically challenged among us can now negotiate the formidable thicket of Bach scholarship with ease. The title alone declares that this is no mere annotated bibliography; An Introduction to Bach Studies offers, in addition to brief but unfailingly intelligent assessments of the most important Bach literature, cogent summaries of recent developments on virtually every topic in this venerable field. Pound for pound and dollar for dollar, this volume can't be beaten as a guide to the literature and as a blueprint for future scholarly work on Bach. I just wonder how we have got along without it for so long."-Music and Letters
