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.

      Good selection of pieces. Very well laid out - large print - and clear which hand should play each bit. Lots of space for pencil marks/fingering etc.
      Supposedly grade 6-7 level, but pieces towards to the end of the book are definitely towards the higher end. Earlier pieces fairly straightforward though.
