Why this Blog?

A place where I can lament the changing times; for eccentric comments on current affairs and for unfashionable views, expressed I hope, in cogent style; also occasional cris de coeur largely concerned, I regret to say, with myself.


I welcome your comments, so do please write. Please note however that all comments are moderated prior to publication. Whilst I fully appreciate that life can be frustrating, nevertheless, abuse, SMS language and illiteracy will not be tolerated!

Bach in the News

Image: BBC

The BBC reports here that Dundee University has, using advanced forensic techniques created this impression of how the great composer looked. The article states that only one portrait is known to exist.

A little research led me to this site which covers the subject of Bach's portraits

Picture sources: here

The picture on the left is perhaps the best known image, but the site shows another which is alleged to show the composer at about the age of 20. It looks convincing to me!

Until the next time
