  4. EIther discuss BACH, and how much you enjoy his incredible genius and the remarkably fine playing of Mr. Hurford, or simply wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, and begone.

    Lurk and listen to your heart's content.

    Drive by insults, sneers, quips, accusations and tattletales are not welcome and will be summarily eradicated immediately upon detection.

  5. One of those creative geniuses who took a form as far as it would go.
    Wasn't much more you could do with counterpoint when he finished with it.

    My appreciation of Bach does suffer a bit for my lukewarm appreciation for the tone of the pipe organ but his composition is so beautiful that it would be compelling played by a bluegrass band.

    Make way for Beethoven.

  6. Despite its name, New College is one of the oldest of the Oxford colleges: it was founded in 1379 by William of Wykeham, Bishop of Winchester, as "The College of St Mary of Winchester in Oxford", the second college in Oxford to be dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary.

  7. Doubtless the corollary must be equally true:

  8. For anyone who may be interested the complete organ works of J.S. Bach have also been recorded superbly by the late MARIE CLAIRE ALAIN, one of the very greatest organists of the modern era.

    She recorded the complete works -- an ENORMOUS undertaking -- three times in her life, which last 86 years.

    Marie Claire Alain retains the distinction of being the most recorded organist in the history of the recording industry.

    In addition to the complete works of Bach she performed and recorded many of the major works for the instrument by other composers of note.

    She also was a great teacher responsible for producing many of the finest performers on the instrument.

    Just another extraordinarily great person relatively few know about who deserves our attention.

    Most of "our" problems worldwide stem from "our" arrogantly insistent emphasis on all the wrong -- depraved, corrupt, banal, hopelessly trivial -- things while we rudely ignore what is worthwhile.
