Rated PG.

I did learn a lot from this, but the book is organized in a rather peculiar fashion with one time period here and one theme there and a chapter of quotes in the middle and all of that. I also do not agree that Bach's secular music was "pure music" and thus better than his sacred music, because I think that music's best purpose is in praise--it's more meaningful that way.
