This is the first complete work on the life of Bach ever written for
children. Every important incident is mentioned and every detail of the
story is true. It is filled with vivid descriptions of Bach’s childhood
and adult life. The music reproduced represents all the kinds of music
that Bach wrote. A child can never really know music unless he knows
Bach, for his contribution is the foundation and structural basis of all
music. But it is more the human side of this book that will make it
live, for in it the great master breathes.
