Background

I love eighteenth century sacred music, but many works are too short for concerts and too long for today's church worship. Now that everyone can use computers to arrange, abridge and adapt works they like, I think the best resources are those that conform as far as possible to manuscript sources and update the notation with modern clefs and accidentals. Among editors my hero is Wilhelm Rust of the Bach Gesellschaft Ausgabe, who allowed the bare lines left to us to inspire whatever accompaniment the players decide to use.
