[+] Stinson, Russell. "Three Organ-Trio Transcriptions from the Bach Circle: Keys to a Lost Bach Chamber Work." In Bach Studies, ed. Don O. Franklin, 125-59. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1989.

Bach's organ trios are divided into three categories: free works, chorale settings, and transcriptions. It is likely that three organ transcriptions, the Trio in G Major, BWV 1027a, and two trios not listed in the Schmieder catalogue, are not by Bach, although they are crucial to the understanding of a possible lost Bach chamber work. Stinson shows how these transcriptions rework the Bach originals and suggests names of Bach's contemporaries who could have been responsible for these transcriptions.
