How did it get to be the first Sunday in Advent already?
Here’s Gardiner conducting BWV 140. People say of him when he plays Bach that he’s in a hurry. (Or: that he plays Bach like he’s at a dance.) At the moment it seems to be appropriate to my mood …
Maybe the appropriate mood will descend this week.
If you would like a Richard Armitage connection, the cantata above is said to have been an influence on Procol Harum’s most well known song “A Whiter Shade of Pale” (1967); Kenneth in Love, Love, Love refers to the band in Act Two.
