Learning Bach and Learning from Bach. . .

Concordia Lutheran Seminary (CLS) is gearing up for its Winter 2014 Quest Course: “A Man for our Times: Bach’s Music and Theology for a New Millennium.” The course, which is free to attend and will be live-streamed online, will be taught by Rev. Lorne Manweiler.

“So often, J.S. Bach is held up as a paragon of the high Baroque and of an even higher church music,” the course description reads. “It may be surprising to many that Bach dealt with the same grass-roots challenges the modern church worker and church musician faces: chronic lack of resources, doctrinal inconsistency, cultural pressures, few capable parish musicians, and often antagonistic working relationships.”
