Beginning with Bach

Gramophone magazine has published a list of the ten best works by JS Bach, especially aimed at newcomers to his music. 

Glorious as they are, the St Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor,  are possibly better suited to more experienced listeners, we think.  Notable absentees from the list are gentler introductions to his music – including the 2 part inventions, the double choir motet Komm Jesu Komm, and the Magnificat.
