St Matthew Passion. Early version (BWV244b) (Hardback)
Facsimile edition of Johann Altnickol's copy

Bach’s St. Matthew Passion as we know it today evidently had a long history dating back before it's first performance in April 1727.  It is unclear whether the repeated performance at the Thomaskirche on Good Friday 1729 was based on a still earlier version.  

The only extant copy we have of the 1727/1729 St. Matthew Passion is a score that was once thought to have been made by Bach’s pupil and future son-in-law Johann Christoph Altnickol.  It is this version presented here in facsimile.
