Happy Birthday, Bach

May 31st is the birthday of Johann Sebastian Bach.

Did you know the library holds CDs and sheet music?  We also have access to the Naxos music database, which has thousands of recordings available online.

When you search for musicians and composers, you can narrow searches in One Search to Music Recordings, and see our online holdings as well as our CDs.

Why not take a look at (or have a listen to) some of our sound recordings for Bach?

Or, if you fancy playing some music yourself, see our musical scores for Bach - we have some of those available online as well.

And, if you just want to do some research on the man and his music, well, we also have books about Bach.

Gosh, we even have a book called About Bach - what more could you want?

Oh, and in case you were wondering, Bach would be 330 years old today.  He was born in 1685 - which, incidentally, was the same year George Frideric Handel died.

Coincidence?

Yeah, probably.

But we have Handel's music, too.
