Johann Sebastian Bach was unequaled as a composer of organ and choral music and is considered the "master of masters" because his works inspired so many of the famous musicians who followed him-among them Mozart, Beethoven, and Chopin. Originally published in 1944 in the author's larger "Encyclopedia of Musical Masterpieces: Music for the Millions," this paperback edition explores and describes dozens of Bach's greatest works in such genres as Cantata, Chorale Prelude, Fugue, Invention, Mass, Oratorio, Partita, Passion, Sonata, Suite, and Toccata.
