A portrait of the composer from his various manuscripts.
America possesses more autograph manuscripts and other primary Bach sources than any other country outside Germany. Dispersed in 30 different places are at least nineteen autograph manuscripts, fifty-five original performing parts and other autograph writings, a portrait of the composer from life, and Bach's own Bible. Of the 130 autograph scores of Church cantatas that survive, fourteen plus a cantata fragment are in the United States.
