Bach’s practice of performing Passion music by other composers in 1730–1740s is considered in the article. A special attention is paid to the St Luke Passion (BWV 246) and the chorale Aus der Tiefen rufe ich, which autograph was found in the 20th century in Japan. Bach placed the arrangement of this chorale for instruments in conclusion of the first part of the St Luke Passion (BWV 246). The author pays attention not only to Bach’s technique as an arranger, but also to Bach’s insight into concept of anonymous composer. The article discusses the ideas that Bach could have guided in the process of preparing the St Luke Passion for the performance in Leipzig.

Anna Bulycheva (Moscow). Concerto, concentus, kontsert: partesny kontsert v kontekste barochnoj terminologii / Concerto, Concentus, Kontsert: the Partes Concerto within the Context of Baroque Terminology (pp. 10–17)

The author examines existing definitions of the partes concerto (and Russian sacred concerto as a whole) and analyses some shortcomings. The concerto is compared with the other musical genres of early baroque period, such as motet, psalm and sinfonia. The coexistence in Russian partes manuscripts of both concert and concent is discovered. The possible path of penetration to Russia of the Latin word concentus is considered. For the first time, the system of definitions for Russian partes, classical and early romantic sacred concerto is established.
