It seems like I may just have kicked off a mini-meme. Well, after Michael Brooke" spotted my bookmark link to Tim Smith's outstanding site of Well Tempered Clavier analyses,
Crooked Timber have picked up on it - which pretty much makes it a meme, doesn't it?

Anyway, I came across the WTC link a few days ago going through a big Work database of music-related links (most of which, depressingly, are pretty dire, it has to be said), and this one just stood out a mile. For anyone wanting to know anything about counterpoint, Bach, the 48 Preludes and Fugues, or musical analysis in general, this is where to go. Anyone who reckons musicology is the worst of all meaningless, ivory-towered, navel-gazing occupations (which for the most part it is), or who believes passionately that there is no reason why it need be (which for the most part I do) should also pay a visit. This is a joy to behold.
