BACH. The following corrections are to be made in the article which treats of the Bach family (vol. i. pp. 108–114).

P. 109 a, l. 7. The genealogy was not written, but added to, by Emanuel Bach. In the genealogical table several errors occur. No. 13 died in 1682, not 1732; No. 16 was born 1642, not 1643. The date of death of No. 14 is doubtful. No. 24 lived from 1759 to 1845. To No. 8 add dates 1645–1693. No. 6 was not named Johann, but only Christoph.

P. 110 a, last line but 3, for 1761, read 1671.

P. 111 a. The list of J. Christoph Bach's motets is as follows:–(Printed) ‘Lieber Herr Gott’ (Naue, Neun Motette, etc., book ii. 4); ‘Der Gerechte, ob er gleich zu zeitig stirbt’ (Naue, i. 1); ‘Unsers Herzens Freude hat ein Ende’ (Musica Sacra, Berlin, Bote & Bock, vol. xvi. 18); and the doubtful ‘Ich lasse dich nicht’ (Naue, iii. 9, and elsewhere). The following are in manuscript:–‘Der Mensch, vom Weibe geboren’; ‘Sei getreu bis in den Tod’; ‘Herr, nun lässest du deinen Diener’; and ‘Fürchte dich nicht, denn ich habe dich erlöst.’

P. 111 b, line 15 from bottom, the expression ‘Starke Sonaten’ is to be taken as equivalent to ‘stark besetzte Sonaten,’ and refers, not to the character of the compositions, but to the employment of several instruments in them.
