    Although Bach's Mass in B minor is one of the most frequently performed works by the Cantor of St. Thomas's, it is full of puzzles and problems. This applies not only to the question, still unanswered to this day, of why Bach composed this work, but also to many details of the musical text.

    This edition offers clear musical text and is based not only on the autograph and the "Dresden parts", but also on early copies, in order to eliminate from the musical text alterations made after 1750.
