Barbara Owen surveys Bachs early reception in America and Matthew Dirst focuses on John Sullivan Dwights role in advocating Bachs work. Michael Broyles considers the ways Bachs music came to be known in Boston and Mary J. Greer offers a counterpoint in her study of Bachs reception in New York.The volume continues with Hans-Joachim Schulzes essay linking the American descendants of August Reinhold Bach to J. S. Bach through a common sixteenth-century ancestor. Christoph Wolff focuses on Bachs descendants in America, particularly Friederica Sophia Bach, the daughter of Bachs eldest son, Wilhelm Friedemann.

Peter Wollny evaluates several manuscripts not included in Gerhard Herzs study of Bach Sources in America. The book concludes with examinations of Bachs considerable influence on American composers. Carol K. Baron compares the music of Bach and Charles Ives and Stephen A. Crist measures Bachs influence on the jazz pianist and composer Dave Brubeck.
