Bach Collection from the Archive of the Sing-Akademie, Berlin

In 2008 the Friends of the University of Rochester Libraries provided funding for an important collection of primary source documents on microfiche: Die Bach-Sammlung aus dem Archiv der Sing-Akademie zu Berlin. The call number for this new item in our collection is: Media 847. This collection reproduces some 26,000 pages of source documents, representing compositions by twelve members of the Bach family, with particular riches in the music of Johann Sebastian Bach's sons Wilhelm Friedemann, Carl Philipp Emanuel, Johann Christoph Friedrich, and Johann Christian.
