This is an excellent collection of primary writings concerning the keyboard technique of J.S. Bach with commentary. The book describes how Bach performed the piano and organ, including the various fingerings and articulation.

A nice quote from the conclusion: "For the performer, mastery of [Bach's] technique is not a matter of forgetting modern technique, but only of enlarging it by adding to it earlier fingering practices as well as those practices peculiar to J. S. Bach himself."
