Oxford Bach Books For Organ is a 5-volume graded series of Organ music, composed by J. S. Bach and arranged by Anne Marsden Thomas.

Each volume contains a general introduction for players, with advice on registration, tempo, ornamentation, touch and articulation, fingering, pedalling and more. There are also concise notes on each piece by the renowned Bach scholar Professor Russell Stinson - addressing source issues, structure and symbolism and, for the chorale preludes, information on the original hymn melody and text on which the piece based.

An authoritative introduction to this cornerstone of the Organ repertoire, Oxford Bach Books For Organ presents pieces in a highly practical format that is perfect for teachers and students.

This first volume contains 26 pieces for the manual or pedal Organ, suitable for musicians at a Grade 4-5 level.
