    Bach's never ending genius

    Well, Bach's genius is not desputed, all have admired his work. Ya gotta love his gorgeous, neat hand, it's just so lovely to look at.

    I like this collection from "The Royal Library, Berlin" (at least that's my translation of the Latin).

    Such a shame he used the Soprano Clef, otherwise I'd play it from his score (does my head in).
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    Try this Colin, I managed to find it with a bit of back tracking, scroll down and select a score.

    I can see what David means too!
    Cheers MIKE.

    Thanks Mike, I have it safe and sound, as neat as a printed score.
