Story of Bach in Words and Music CD

DID YOU KNOW…

Bach came from a long line of musicians.

Bach was the most celebrated German organist of his time.

Mozart said of Bach: “He is the father of all music. We are his children.”

Bach had 20 children, several of whom also became famous as composers and performers.

Most of Bach’s music was forgotten until the German composer Felix Mendelssohn, began a revival in 1829.

Story of Handel in Words and Music CD

DID YOU KNOW…

Handel, like his exact contemporary Johann Sebastian Bach, was a famous organist, but he left little music for the instrument.

Few composers worked as quickly as Handel, who sometimes completed major works in a matter of days.

Handel was a cosmopolitan figure. His music brought together elements of English, French, German, and Italian styles.
