But there’s another side to it. And this is one that Sebastian may well have picked up from his elder cousin, which is that, as a composer, you can channel all that frustration and disappointment into music. And the marvelous thing is about Johann Christoph’s music and Sebastian’s music is that it has this wonderfully consoling and uplifting quality to it.

Most of all, Bach’s music offers us balm and comfort in bereavement. The subject of death appears again and again throughout his music as it did in his own life.

This is the town cemetery. An Eisenach’s old city walls are here on the right. And just beyond it, it’s the school where Bach went--the old xx cloister. Somewhere here, in unmarked graves, are those of his parents, Elizabeth and Ambrosius. Elizabeth died when Bach was xx in 9 years old. And then 9 months later, his father Ambrosius died as well. Bach, as the youngest son and a member of local parish choir, had to witness the whole event and sing while the ceremony was going on and slow tolling the bell. And as the coffin was lowered into the grave, he and his fellow choristers sang Luther’s word: xx--in the midst of life, we are in death.
