Notes & Reviews:

For the last 27 years of his life, [Bach] was a schoolteacher and choir director whose duties extended to meal supervision and dormitory inspection. Yet throughout his career he composed a vast body of music, which is amongst the most joyful, dancing and enrapturing ever written. This portrait in sound includes many examples of the music that made him immortal.
