On this day

On this day: Sep 5

German composer Johann Christian Bach was born in 1735 in Leipzig. He is the youngest son of Johann Sebastian Bach. This video is about Johann Christian’s father’s bible with notations from JS Bach.

Johann Sebastian Bach’s compositions, Dr. Thomas Rossin says, stemmed from his private faith — a faith evidenced by Bach’s handwritten notes in his Bible. Hear about the Bible’s nomadic journey and its possible influence of his “Mass in B Minor” — what the late, great scholar of creeds, Jaroslav Pelikan, holds up as an example of the “best we’ve ever done.”
