I have of late taken interest in broadening my musical tastes, particularly in the genre of “classical” music. I happened upon some of J.S. Bach’s works as performed by artists on YouTube and I fell in love. I’ve heard some of the tunes before — Toccata and Fugue in D minor, Prelude in C Major from the Well Tempered Clavier, Prelude from Cello Suite No. 1 — but had never really listened to them all the way through. What a treat!
He was at once both a composer and a theologian. I must listen to more, particularly his cantatas. I hope you will consider doing the same, my friends. There is a beauty in this man’s music that reflects and proclaims God’s glory. Good, solid doctrine set to powerfully emotive music.
Perhaps I should consider learning German so I can understand his works in their original tongue. Any volunteers?
