    Herr Johann Sebastian Bach

    Great music from perhaps the most phenomenally talented composer of all time, J.S. Bach.

    J.S. Bach
    Cantata No. 79 (1725)
    BWV 79/1
    ‘Gott der Herr ist Sonn und Schild’
    Opening Chorus
    Neue Bachsche Collegium Musicum and Thomanerchor Leipzig.

    Corno Dolce,

    Wow !!! Yes.

    Thank you.

    That marvellous Passacaglia ! This is great. Thank you again.

    And what of this ? It's outrageous, wonderful, innocent, pure, great. The American Virgil Fox (1912-1980), organist, showman and great musical genius.

    Thank you Robert and CD, for sharing those wonderful videos. Who could not like Bach?

    Here is the great David Oistrakh, playing Bach Violin Concerto in A minor (1st mvt.). I love it, it only makes me want to listen to more.

    Aloha Mr. Newman,

    It was the interpretive genius of Virgil Fox who got me interested in wanting to play the organ. Thanx for sharing all those vids with us.

    Cheerio,

    Hi there Corno Dolce,

    I first heard Virgil Fox almost 20 years ago on a vinyl recording. He did as much for the appreciation of this music as anyone, it seems. Let the 'purists' criticise him if they like.

    I'll post his famous (1963) recording of the Passacaglia soon.

    Regards

    Robert
