Support All of Bach
Help us to complete All of Bach!
All of Bach is a project by the Netherlands Bach Society. Every day, a team of people works with passion and devotion on everything you can discover on this website. It is a treasure trove of music, background information and interviews - freely accessible all over the world.
But the work is not finished yet. There are still many recordings to be made before the whole of Bach’s oeuvre is online. And we can’t complete the task without the financial support of our patrons. Please help us to complete the musical heritage of Bach, by supporting us with a donation!
For your administration: the Netherlands Bach Society is a Cultural Institution for Public Benefit (cultural ANBI). Our ANBI registration number (RSI) is 7085126.
How can you support us?
Bach wrote the libretto’s of his cantatas in early modern German. We have received numerous requests of All of Bach fans to add English subtitles to the cantatas on All of Bach. In collaboration with the American Bach Society, professor Daniel R. Melamed and professor emeritus Michael Marissen, we have so far been able to translate five cantata libretto’s to English. In doing so, Bach’s music becomes even more accessible to all! By supporting All of Bach with 150 euros, we can add English subtitles to a cantata on All of Bach.
Adopt a work
From € 2.000 it is possible to adopt a recording of a specific BWV number. In consultation with our team you can select a work that still has to be recorded and your donation will make it possible to finance the facilities required for the recording. Of course you are very welcome to attend the exciting recording day! When the editing is ready and the work is published, you or your company will be acknowledged in the credits. With the adoption of a work you can help to enlarge the beautiful All of Bach collection. An overview of the Bach works that are still open for adoption can be found here. More information about adopting a work? Please contact us via email@example.com.
Precious treasure trove
All of Bach is a precious undertaking. Our goal is a perfect end result. So not only are the recordings attended by a cameraman and a production assistant, but we also call on experienced directors, artistic staff, sound specialists, lighting technicians and subtitlers. We are also continually on the lookout for the most beautiful locations and the best musicians for realising the next recording of one of Bach’s works. So a ‘simple’ recording day not only costs a lot of time, but also a lot of money.
