by Johan Norrback
Seeking a definable way of selecting the temperament in which an organ may be tuned, Johan Norrback describes (in English) a new method for studying tuning and temperament in organ music involving three primary elements: written sources, preserved instruments, and the music itself. His discussion takes the music of J. S. Bach as its example. The book includes a CD-R (playable on a computer, only) which compares eight temperaments in 10- to 15-second examples of six Bach works. 156 pages, softbound
