Why do we love the music of the great Baroque master Johann Sebastian Bach?
His compositions exhibit mathematical precision
The passionate cry of his soul infuses his music
His music is calming, hypnotic, meditative, inspiring and, above all, consoling
There’s a bigness, an optimistic complexity and relish about Bach’s music
His music is comforting
It is intelligent music
It is scientific yet spontaneous music
His music is about the love of God
His music gives faith a physical form
The music is a strange mixture of the meta-physical and the spiritual
His music is an extraordinary mixture of intense organization and great lyrical beauty.
