This chapter investigates how Edward Elgar championed Bach's organ music as a church organist and an orchestral transcriber. It also examines his activities as a devotee and unofficial critic of Bach's organ works, with emphasis on the annotations that he made in his personal copy of Albert Schweitzer's book on Bach. The annotations made by Elgar in his personal copy of the Peters edition of Bach's complete organ works are also taken into consideration.
