I also read before that the famous, beautiful aria to the Goldberg Variations may have been composed by the wife?

Additionally, the aria itself cannot be traced directly to Bach, with the only autograph version of the thirty-two-measure preamble appearing in the handwriting of Bach's second wife, Anna Magdalena, in one of her personal notebooks.

This does not prove the wife composed the beautiful aria. Either way it is a beautiful piece.
