#beginquote# Typically, large accents will be marked by the editor. That said, when notes are slurred together, a slight accent on the first of the slurred grouping can add to the style and phrasing. (try it for any stlye to differing degrees), I think Bach (considering a great deal of his music was written for organ or harpsichord (neither of which accent in a conventional way) is best played without a great deal of accenting other than those notated. That said again, when I play Bach on the trumpet, I just let the line tell me what to do, and my ear helps keep me from doing too much. Here is a link to some similar questions for playing Bach on a modern piano (if that is what you are playing): http://www.serve.com/marbeth/bach_on_piano.html GOOOOOOROOOOOO #endquote#
