Coffee Break Bach
You're about to hear some beautiful music. Thoughtful music. Music that might take a double take-- to perceive all the flavours. Pour that cuppa coffee and put up your feet (slice of cake too?), and enjoy.
But first! Here are some ideas to get you inspired. You're welcome -hehe
Did you know that Bach was a big coffee fan? Coffee houses were relatively new in Europe in his day (Bach lived between 1685-1750), and apparently were a bit controversial. After all, as we all know, coffee has potentially exciting/frightening effects- lol. He even wrote some music about it, and I have the LP to prove it! If you want to know why he's pointing his finger and she looks like she's pleading with him, let me know in the comments and I will be happy to fill you in :)
I'm not the only one who knows about Bach and his coffee affairs. I believe this Bach quote was photographed at Just Us! Coffee Roasters in Wolfville, NS (love them, the coffee is fair trade and delicious)
Anyway, on to the music now!
Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed listening. How come we played it on 2 cellos and a bass and not on the organ? Well, for starters, none of us can play the organ! For all you curious people, let me know in the comments if you want more info on that story!
Before I sign off, a special thank you to Gord Lehmann for making our video!
Until next time,
