Going for Baroque
Today we celebrate the birthday of Johann Sebastian Bach. We in the Sanctuary have been big fans since his days fronting the Lovin' Spoonful at Woodstock. Wait, that was JOHN Sebastian. No Bach (1685-1750).
OK, but the Baroque composer's work is certainly not new to rock 'n' roll, which has threads of every music known to man running through it. We can't be certain, but we think Bach would have been satisfied with this electrifying movement from the Toccata and Fugue in D minor.
