More Bach passion stuff

You have to go to the Youtube site to see the additional postings, which is why I am not literally posting this.

Bach had the greatest difficulty with his boy singers. They were a constant conflict between him and the council at Leipzig. A convincing case has been made that he would have preferred women, but he was stuck with what he had. By no means do I present this as the ideal performance, but it is probably better than any that Bach ever heard, unless it was by one of his own sons.

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
-- Johann Sebastian Bach
