Bach Példatár vol. I

The excerpts selected for this book are, aside from their musical beauty, also excellently suited for pedagogical purposes. They comprise two special fields of Baroque vocal music: melodies of arias and recitativos.

The aria- and arioso examples presented here without accompaniment serve the purpose of studying singing at sight.

Arias and recitativos published with continuo furnish the student with material for the study of harmony and therefore form an essential part of the study of music theory.
