In 2005, musicologist Michael Maul made a remarkable discovery in Weimar, Germany. While perusing the Herzogin Anna Amalia library, he stumbled upon an unknown sacred aria manuscript by Johann Sebastian Bach. This was the first new Bach vocal work to be found since 1935. Composed in 1713, the aria features twelve verses and is written for solo soprano, strings, and basso continuo. Its opening line is "Alles mit Gott und nichts ohn' ihn." The piece was created to celebrate the fifty-third birthday of Duke Wilhelm Ernst of Saxe-Weimar, who employed Bach as court organist from 1708 to 1717. The work is Bach's only contribution to the strophic aria genre.

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
