    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.

    It's on Friday evening, which is in about 10 hours from now, you didn't miss it.

    Yep - Friday is 3 June here, too, we just get it before you do! I'm really looking forward to hearing this, just love the first Brandenburg concerto and love the fourth orchestral suite. Also like his choral music, so it's bliss.

    I prefer the 3rd Brandenburg concerto. I could listen to it over and over again (which I did, a few years ago).

    Yeah - the third is a blast and have played it in a string orchestra a couple of times. So incredibly enjoyable, playing Bach.
