Paper Topic
Thesis
There is speculation that the multi-movement works that house Bachs
two da capo fugues for lute, BWV 997 and BWV 998, contain a bounty
of religious symbolism. In this paper I hope to explore how Bachs
Lutheran beliefs influenced his secular music, in particular BWV 997 (a
partia in C minor containing a Prelude, Fugue, Saraband, Gigue and
Double) and BWV 998 (Prelude, Fugue and Allegro, in Eb major), and
how those beliefs were imparted in his composition.
