Bach remembered on this day

This is Bach’s grave situated in the chancel of Leipzig’s Thomaskirche. Bach passed away on 28 July 1750. Today we remember him with much gratitude and affection. There are no words that adequately express our thanks for the music, music that brings light and joy into peoples’ lives, comfort in difficult times, and Bach says in his music what we ordinary mortals find difficult to express in words. It is a musical legacy for us to treasure.
