Six Chorales for Cello and Piano by J.S. Bach. Transcribed by Pierre Fournier and published by International Music Company, New York.


"Look no further than the first of the six. The 2nd, 3rd and 4th bass notes in bar 12 are completely wrong (they should be a tenth below the tenor line, not an octave) and the last quaver of the bar even has the A flat missing. This is not Fournier taking liberties with JSB - his own recording shows scrupulous fidelity to the original harmony - and he would have been horrified. Anyone familiar with the Leipzig Chorale Preludes would have spotted this howler ages ago. It's a disgrace that proof-reading as shoddy as this should pass muster for any Associated Board set piece - let alone Grade 8."
