J. S. Bach's music and worldview - audio lecture by John Hodges

Quotes and comments;
- enjoyable lecture; he plays selections from the mass in B. minor, and then comments on them.
- apparently church services in Bach's day were quite long. One pastor asked Bach if he could shorten his cantatas as he wanted to get the service down to a mere four hours.
- there are four other lectures available as well.
