C. P. E. Bach Studies (Cambridge University Press, 2006). This collection of nine wide-ranging essays by leading scholars of eighteenth century music brings new perspectives to Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach’s later work (1767–1788 in Hamburg). The book explores literary, theological, and aesthetic contexts of his work offering perspectives on Bach’s position on contemporary concepts of responsiveness, his sacred music, and views on religion and on the contemporary and posthumous reception of his music. The book explores Bach’s music in its cultural contexts. The collection also includes an essay by Cornell music faculty David Yearsley entitled: “C. P. E. Bach and the Living Traditions of Learned Counterpoint.”
