    As a result he was frequently asked to advise on new organ specifications and to test newly completed instruments with a thorough and detailed examination and report, as was the custom of the time. There were also week-day services for Bach to superintend at the four churches, also in one of the ancient hospitals and in a 'house of correction'. This drove Bach to write to his school-friend Erdmann in Danzig, asking him to find him a 'convenient post' where he could escape the 'trouble, envy and persecution' which he had perpetually to face in Leipzig. He had invented so comfortable a fingering that he could master the most difficult parts with perfect ease using 5 fingers instead of the then normal 3.

    In Bach's time the A would be played on the beat, not before it. Here the interest was in the new Italian style of music which was then becoming the rage of Europe, one of the chief exponents being the Venetian composer Vivaldi. Hoffmann incidentally also built a viola pomposa, a tenor of the violin family, to Bach's orders. In the meantime, Williams had written a article on the authenticity of BWVfollowed by numerous publications by other scholars on the same topic.

    Along here were some of the eight Leipzig garden Coffee-houses situated outside the town, where much of the musical life of the city took place during the summer. In Bach petitioned the Elector of Saxony in Dresden for an official title, enclosing copies of the Kyrie and Gloria from the b-minor Mass; though unsuccessful, Bach tried again this time with the backing of his Dresden patron Count von Keyserlingk. There were numerous musicians and composers in his family, including a second cousin, Johann Ludwig Bachwhose works JSB frequently performed. He links it to the northern school, and mentions Tausig, Busoni and Stokowki as influencing its trajectory. He describes the fugue as slender and simple, but only a "very sketchy example of the form". He considers that the notes of the piece are not too difficult to play, but that an organist performing the work is primarily challenged by interpretation.

J.S. Bachs grand staff and chromatic music notation book

He was able to accomplish passages on the pedals with his feet which would have given trouble to the fingers of many a clever player on the keyboard'. Apart from this, he had to attend and compose music for funerals and various other occasions.

This he did, and some time in he came over to inaugurate its first performance. Similarly for other cases. Outside its massive town walls were elegant tree-lined promenades and extensive formal gardens. When the Prince traveled, Bach and some of the Court musicians together with instruments, including an ingenious folding-harpsichord would accompany him on his extensive journeys.

In Bach's time, the city of Leipzig already had an established tradition of Collegia Musica - secular musical organizations, run mainly by the students of the city's famed university - dating back at least to the middle of the preceding century, if not its beginning.

In that edition he indicates the work as "well-known". The Council had little option but to allow his departure. In the twenty-eight years of happy marriage that followed, thirteen children were born to the Bach family though few of them survived through childhood.

It is on record that the Council reprimanded Bach in August for leaving his teaching duties in the overworked hands of his junior colleague, Petzold; for not properly disciplining his choirs, and for his frequent unauthorized journeys away from Leipzig.

In the warmer months, the music was moved outdoors, to Zimmermann's coffee garden "in front of the Grimma gate, on the Grimma stone road" - so the address is given in contemporary reports, with summer performances on Wednesdays, from 4 to 6pm. Bach's opening contribution was a set of canonic variations on the Christmas hymn, 'Vom Himmel hoch'.

Bach developed a close working relationship with his contemporary, the celebrated Saxon organ-builder Gottfried Silbermann, who was also a personal friend of the Bach family and godfather to Carl Philipp Emmanuel.

Two cataract operations were performed on his eyes, in March and Apri1and their weakening effect was aggravated by a following infection which seriously undermined his health.

He would usually complete his trial by improvising a prelude and fugue: the prelude to test the organ's power, the fugue to test its clarity for counterpoint. The last bars are played Molto adagio, and the piece ends with a minor plagal cadence. Such basic harmonizations inevitably contained at least one chromatic note the raised 4 and frequently contained more.

There may well have been a separate organ-type pedalboard. The Council, after trying unsuccessfully to get a certain Christoph Graupner, old boy of the Thomasschule and Capellmeister at Darmstadt, eventually settled for Bach as a reasonable alternative.

At the opening speech, Gesner stressed the need for music within the foundation - which must have given Bach some hope for a brighter future in the school.
