I enjoy Bach on occasion. I love to hear his bourree for guitar. It is pure beautifully structured musical math if I have ever heard one. You can see it in any of his lute suites. The arrangements are always sublime, but It always sounds to me like a walking bass with the jazz preached out of it.
I am not a big fan of the church.
But I have seen many different ways people worship their lord, and the Bach way? I can live with it. If there was a god I am sure he would approve to. If only for the basic reason that the work is so clean, tidy and well thought of. homework well done, you get an A in worshiping through music. A nice gold cross for the spiritual musical mathematical contract composer.
The comforting thing is that I know that Bach without those fixed borders, without that Christian box he was locked in, without the OCD, would be anything but Bach. And that would have been a real shame.
