Suggestions for Future Research

  • Transcriptions and translations of three works by Johann Valentin Eckelt (1675–1732), all located at A-Wmk. (Email them to order a scan.) Eckelt was a pupil of Pachelbel, who also taught Johann Christoph Bach. J. S. Bach received his first musical education from J. C. Bach in Ohrdruf beginning in 1695. Thus, Eckelt’s works may shed light on Bach’s early education.
      1. Prolegomena de musica in genere
      2. Experimenta musicæ compositæ
      3. Curtzer unterricht, was eines Organisten nötig zu wißen sey

I highly recommend Maria Richter for help transcribing old manuscripts!
