I haven’t listened to any Baroque compositions in quite sometime. I felt it appropriate on this early Sunday morning to post this Missa tota by Bach, as an ode to NPR’s Sunday Baroque, where I first heard this wonderful choral composition. Admittedly I haven’t attended mass in years, as I have an Anglican background, but I guess this piece will serve as my mass for this morning. I am currently exploring the traditions of the Eastern Orthodox Church, which is totally irrelevant to this post but I wanted to say it nonetheless.
Additionally, I find Baroque compositions to be a soothing balm for the mind and I use the musical genre as a form of therapy, as I do many other genres of music.
