Who was J. S. Bach?

Two interesting links for J.S. Bach’s lovers and worshippers (via Norm):

> More than 250 years after the German composer's death, the face of Johann Sebastian Bach has been recreated by experts at Dundee University (UK).

> J.S. Bach in the Twenty-First Century: The Chapel Becomes a Larder, in “Hudson Review,” Winter 2008, a long article by Harold Fromm. Although Fromm doesn’t want to serve as a reviewer of the recent books by Geck, Wolff, and Williams, he refers to them, and acknowledges his debt to these erudite scholars and musicologists.

[Johann Sebastian Bach: Life and Work, by Martin Geck. Foreword by Kurt Masur. Trans. by John Hargraves. Harcourt. J. S. BACH: A Life in Music, by Peter Williams. Cambridge University Press. Johann Sebastian Bach: The Learned Musician, by Christoph Wolff. New York, London, 2000]
