I wish I was in Boston

I wish I was in Boston and I had some time to kill. I’d be spending all of Saturday at the First Lutheran Church. From 8am to 6:30 pm it’s non-stop Bach to celebrate Johann Sebastian’s 329th birthday on Friday. The event is called Boston Bach Birthday 329.

I’m not sure how I will actually celebrate the big day, as I know I will not be anywhere near Boston. I was thinking of Black Forest cake . . . but since I stopped exercising I’ve been putting on weight, so even if cherries could be justified, the alcohol, cream and sugar could not. I suspect I’ll just play something like the Fantasia and Fugue in G minor, BWV 542, when I’m sitting alone at work before the day begins.

    I’m listening to Bach today too – the Lute Suites – although I guess some people doubt that Bach actually wrote them … do you have an opinion? Either way, I find them very relaxing.

      Do I have an opinion on whether J.S.B. wrote the Lute Suites? Ha ha. Simone you are way too kind; you’re indicating far more respect than I deserve. I know nothing about almost everything, and music, composers, etc are good examples of what I know nothing about. I agree with you though, that it’s how the music makes me feel that indicates its value.

      I imagine Crossfire doesn’t have quite the same perspective on Bach that the Lutherans do…but any excuse for a cake (even an Annual Business Meeting!)

    Hi oldblack! I’ve been thinking of you and wondering how things are going for you. I really hope you are having / have had an excellent Bach’s Birthday. I do hope you indulged in the Black Forest Cake!
