Description

The Orgelbüchlein Project is a collective composition project aiming to complete Bach's unfinished manuscript known as 'Orgelbüchlein'. in the 'Little Organ Book', Bach laid out a complete hymnal of short organ chorales, 164 in all, but only completed 46 of them. Why the remaining 118 were left as blank pages, with only a title at the head, remains a mystery, but they inspired organist William Whitehead to found the Orgelbüchlein Project, in which contemporary composers are invited to contribute a piece to completing the collection.

  • Nigel Allcoat
  • Johann Sebastian Bach
  • Sally Beamish
  • Christian von Blohn
  • Timothy Byram-Wigfield
