Neumeister Choräle, not by J.S. Bach, Part I
Johann Gottfried Neumeister (1757 – 1840) was a German teacher and organist. Nowadays Neumeister would have been forgotten if it wasn’t for the collection of chorale preludes he compiled in the years shortly after 1790. This collection, called the `Neumeister Collection’ or the `Neumeister Sammlung’, is a compilation of 82 chorale preludes and was rediscovered in 1985. It attracted a lot of attention because it contained 39 chorale preludes attributed to Johann Sebastian Bach, 32 of which were previously unknown. The other works contained in the manuscript are nevertheless equally interesting, and perhaps more so.
After having published all chorale preludes noy by J. S. Bach of the “Meimeister Sammmlung”, it is now time to bring them together in one Edition. Well, two actually, otherwise the result would be too voluminous. The works in present Edition appear in the order in which they appear in the source.

The download of the score ‘Neumeister Choräle, not by J.S. Bach, Part I’ doesn’t work. Could you maybe fix that?
I’m sorry for the inconvenience. The download link is now working again.
Thank you very much for your quick response. there are several scores where the download link does not work (anymore). Shall I send you the links to the scores so maybe you can reactivate them?
Yes, that would be great. I though I had checked them all, but obviously I missed a few…
