Welcome to the Companion Website for Bach. Under "Resources" (to the left), users will find a glossary (Appendix E) and audio versions of the music examples, which they are invited to consult while reading the book. Some readers will also want to explore longer versions of the music examples, available only online. Those who wish to know more about the manuscripts and other documents cited in the book, or who seek suggestions for further reading, will want to consult the guide to sources in Appendix D.
For practical reasons, the audio versions of the music examples are electronically synthesized and therefore provide only a general idea of what the music sounds like. They nevertheless may prove helpful, especially to those confronting Bach's musical notation for the first time.
