Coming back to Bach: If he was not interested in tunings he would not have =
written the Well Tempered clavier.
If he was interested in promoting equal temperament he would have called it=
the Equal tempered Clavier
There were plenty of tunings in Bach's day. If music over the centuries=
had NOT settled on a standard tuning that essentially displaced the others=
, would modern music have been experimenting with alternative tunings?
