This App is a collection of four-part Chorales harmonized by Johann Sebastian Bach. When first launched, the Chorale numbered to the current day of year is shown. You can then choose any of the 371 Chorales with the "Select Wheel" found on the second screen.
The "Text Switch" adds the title verse to the Chorale. The"Figured Bass Switch" replaces the alto and tenor voices with figured bass, thus highlighting the harmony and simplifying the music.
The "Transpose Wheel" on the far right shows the number of half-steps you have chosen to transpose the Chorale from it's original key (displayed on the left). Practicing in all twelve keys is ideal.
Improved figured bass for many chorales.

App needs update - 5 or 6% of pieces have errors
I've been using this app every day since the beginning of this year. Found it really useful. I like the design of bringing up a new chorale each day. Some of the pieces are displayed incorrectly, should be proofed and corrected. Number 121 particularly is unusable. I hope there will be future releases fixing the broken pieces and adding features. It would be great if the app could be configured to turn off screen timeouts.
