Exploring Music
with Bill McGlaughlin
Bach Sleeps in on Sundays - JS Bach spent most of his life in service to the Lutheran church. And as Bill notes, ¬"Bach family members worked as church musicians from the time of Martin Luther to Otto von Bismarck¬Ö nearly 400 years.¬" Yet JS Bach also wrote wonderful, enduring secular music ¬- especially during a five-year period (1717-22) working for Prince Leopold ¬- when he wrote the cello suites, violin sonatas and partitas, and Brandenburg Concertos. Bill chronicles this intensely creative period in the story of JS Bach.
