Mr. Bach Comes to Call

My husband and six year old were not very impressed by Mr. Bach Comes To Call, but my two year old and I both liked it. I agree that it is not as good as Beethoven Lives Upstairs, but it is worth listening to several times, and checking out from your library.

This CD expresses very clearly the image of Johann Sebastian Bach coming from a large musical family, being a hard worker, and a prolific composer. It also highlights how so many things were different in the olden days; clothing, parenting, women’s rights, large families etc. Did you know that Bach had twenty children, but only ten lived?

As somebody who studied organ for three years in college, my big beef with this CD is that it left out Bach’s “Toccata and Fuge in D minor”, which was one of my favorite pieces to play. That seems like a major oversight, but perhaps they left it off because it could be too scary.
