  1. Thank you, this just happens to be the perfect thing fro accompany the experience I'm going thriugh right now (chronicled at my blog today).

    Music may have changed and developed wonderfully in many different tyles after Bach (1685-1750), but it never "improved." It just doesn't get any "better" than this.

    As an experienced musician, performer, sometime composer, and lifelong student of classical music, myself, I can honestly say that J.S. Bach gave the world the greatest possible range of expression in his cantata, and other choral works, his organ works, his harpsichord and orchestral works.

    Most of us who are serious about music regard his life as an absolute miracle. How one human being could have produced so much magnificent stuff in a mere sixty-five years boggles the mind.

    The performances on this video are absolutely first-rate by the way.

    Thanks again for sharing this great stuff.

  5. I look upon these 100 minutes of Bach as the sublime to offset the evil unleashed in London yesterday. A cleansing of the soul.
