This page includes a set of midi files of chorales harmonized by J. S. Bach. These short works are used in church services and in the study of the practices of harmony.

The BWV catalog numbers were created in 1950 to standardize references to Bach's work. No longer need there be confusion about WHICH fugue in g minor is being talked about.

Most of these chorales may be found in the following two editions:

Bach, 371 Harmonized Chorales and 69 Chorale Melodies with Figured Bass, ed. Albert Riemenschneider, G. Schirmer, NY, 1941.
This is a reworking of the Bach-Kirnberger edition of 370 chorales.
Johann Sebastian Bach, 389 Chorales, Kalmus K06002, Belwin Inc, 15800 NW 48th Ave, Miami, FL 33014
This is a re-publication of the Richter edition of 389 chorales.

These files were created on a Macintosh using Coda's Finale.
