Dance and the Music of J S  Bach

Stylized dance music and music based on dance rhythms pervade Bach's compositions. Although this very special genre has long been a part of every serious musician's repertoire, little has been written about it.

In this expanded version of their practical and insightful study, Meredith Little and Natalie Jenne apply the same principles to a great number of Bach's works that exhibit identifiable dance rhythms but do not bear dance-specific titles.
