      > The English Bach Awakening: Knowledge of J. S. Bach and his Music in
      > England, 1750-1830, has been published by Ashgate. Hitherto this
      > subject has been called 'the English Bach revival', but that is a
      > misnomer. 'Revival' implies prior life, yet no reference to Bach or
      > to his music is known to have been made in England during his
      > lifetime.
      >
      > The book begins with a comprehensive chronology of the English Bach
      > Awakening, Eight chapters follow, written by Michael Kassler, Philip
      > Olleson and Yo Tomita, which treat particular parts of the Awakening
      > and show how they developed. A focus of the book is the history of
      > the manuscripts and the printed editions of the '48' (the Well-
      > tempered Clavier) in England at this time, and its culmination in
      > the 'analysed' edition that Samuel Wesley and Charles Frederick Horn
      > published in 1810-1813 and later revised. Wesley's multifaceted role
      > in the Bach Awakening is detailed, as are the several efforts that
      > were made to translate Forkel's biography of Bach into English. A
      > chapter is devoted to A. F. C. Kollmann's endeavour to prove the
      > regularity of Bach's Chromatic Fantasy, and the book concludes with a
      > discussion of portraits of Bach in England before 1830.
