Bach

Heard on "A Prairie Home Companion":

"Bach was revolutionary. He was revolutionary because he was old-fashioned. That's how we know he was a Lutheran."


In other matters: I had posted something on political correctness, then thought better of it and removed it. But it made it through to several feed burners before I removed it. It turned out a little too insensitive.

I guess this means I am more politically correct than I thought I was.

    I enjoyed that post about political correctness.

    I hate to admit it, but I once bought a CD of Bach violin concertos because of the racy cover:

    I was young. The recording was very good, however.

    I like his Passions better, but I'm a little morose.

    Thanks, Anastasia. But I thought it did not quite befit the office.

    Christopher--sure, right. Young. Like you're not now?? :)

    With Bach, I cannot speak of what I like or don't like. It's like the soul in sound.
