Johann Sebastian Bach said: “Music is an agreeable harmony for the honor of God and the permissible delights of the soul.”
I’ve attended the rehearsal for my Sunday’s concert just yesterday evening and after that I was invited to listen to another rehearsal where my new friends played Bach – 2 flutes accompanied by a harpsichord. What a lovely and refreshing music it was as it always is! It sounded like two chirping birds chasing each other above the bickering stream of a mountain river on a hot and sunny afternoon. It was just beautiful and when I closed my eyes I could see myself sitting in Rivendell on the rock next to the river and smell the pine trees around me.
People have always been trying to find the means of time and space travel and it is still considered to be science fiction. But is it not the music like Johann Sebastian Bach’s exactly what we are looking for?
