Celebrating the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation

Join us at Zion Lutheran Church in Wausau, Wisconsin on Sunday, October 2, 2016 at 3:00 p.m. for a grand celebration of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation as we perform our world renown organ and multi-media concert experience, Bach and Sons for the Wasusau community.

How is Johann Sebastian Bach connected to Luther, you ask? Even though Bach was born more than a century after Luther’s death, Bach was a passionate Lutheran whose worship and beliefs inspired some of the world’s finest sacred organ and choral music.  This is exactly in line with Luther’s dreams for the church, having himself introduced the idea that worship should be essentially musical. Among Bach’s greatest works are his Mass in B minor, the St. Matthew Passion, Cantata No. 140, the Magnificat in D major, the St. John Passion, and of course Cantata No. 80, which was based on Luther’s own words and is now known around the world as “A mighty fortress is our God” (or: “Ein Feste Burg ist unser Gott”).

Bach and Sons presents the story of Bach and his family — their dreams, their lives, their work and their passions — through narration, great organ music superbly performed by Dr. Jeannine Jordan, and stunning visuals created by David Jordan that not only take you to Bach’s Germany, but allow you to see an organist at work.  A not-to-be-missed concert experience.


Dr. Jeannine Jordan, concert organist and David Jordan, media specialist are the owners of Pro-Motion Music and the creators ofthree  organ and multi-media concert experiences including Bach and Sons.  To learn more visit http://www.promotionmusic.org.

Recently David and I had the privilege to attend several Bach events during the Salem, Oregon residency of world-renowned Bach scholar and conductor, Helmuth Rilling.  Herr Rilling is one of the foremost authorities in the performance of Johann Sebastian Bach’s choral works.  His insights and erudite examples served to bring to life two of Bach’s magnificent cantatas, “Ein feste burg” and “Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben.”  Under the direction of Herr Rilling, the Willamette Master Chorus of Salem, Oregon presented a memorable evening of the glory of Bach’s music.

In a lecture on the “Spirituality of Bach’s Music” presented by Herr Rilling, the letters “JJ” often written on the top of the first page of a composition and the phrase “Soli deo gloria” were discussed.  The letters “JJ,” an abbreviation for the Latin text, “Jesu juva” were for Bach a prayer, “Jesus Help” as I write this composition showing your glory.  Bach ended his compositions with the Latin phrase, “Soli deo gloria” or “To the Glory of God Alone” as a prayer of thanksgiving to his God.

Nothing is more inspiring than the glorious music of Johann Sebastian Bach interpreted and conducted by a master.


Why Bach?

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.

Dr. Jeannine Jordan, concert organist, and her husband, David Jordan, media-artist are the creators and performers of the organ and multi-media concert experiences, Around the World in 80 Minutes, Bach and Sons, and From Sea to Shining Sea.
