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.
