The Thematic Catalogue of the Musical Works of Johann Pachelbel
The Thematic Catalogue of the Musical Works of Johana Pachelbel provides scholars and performers with a survey of the breadth and variety of the repertoire of the composer described by Christoph Wolff as "one of the most seminal and influential musicians of the pre-Bach generation in Germany." Pachelbel composed the majority of his 527 works for keyboard instruments, as well as choral, vocal, and chamber music, and this Thematic Catalogue presents incipits for those that can be identified. The list of works is intended to determine the totality of the corpus and knowledge about it, establish the best means of identifying each work, and settle problems of identity among similarly titled works. An essay on authorities examines the controversies over the authenticity of Pachelbel's manuscripts.
Meticulously compiled with copious notes and comments, this unique volume will be invaluable to those already familiar with Pachelbel's compositions and will create new interest among those who were aware only of the universally loved canon movement of his Canon and Gigue in D.
