J.S. Bach Quotes

Johann Sebastian Bach is the man.

If I was alive when he was, I probably would never have heard of him. Thanks to technology we have access to his music and a window into his soul. These quotes reflect the true heart of a worship leader.

He told a student, "Just practice diligently, and it will go very well. You have five fingers on each hand just as healthy as mine."

To an acquaintance who praised his organ playing, "There is nothing very wonderful about it; you have only to hit the right notes at the right moment and the instrument does the rest."

Batting clean-up, here's the quote that clears the bases- “The aim and final end of all music should be none other than the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul.”
