• The computational study of figured bass remains an under-researched topic, likely due to the lack of machine-
    readable datasets. This paper is intended to address the paucity of digital figured bass data by 1) investigating procedures for systematically annotating symbolic music files with figured bass, and 2) producing and releasing a model annotated dataset as an illustration of how these procedures can be applied in practice. We introduce the Bach Chorales Figured Bass dataset, which includes 103 chorales composed by Johann Sebastian Bach that includes both the original music and figured bass annotations encoded in MusicXML, **kern, and MEI formats.
