Bach & God explores the religious character of Bach's vocal and instrumental music in seven interrelated essays. Noted musicologist Michael Marissen offers wide-ranging interpretive insights from careful biblical and theological scrutiny of the librettos. Yet he also shows how Bach's pitches, rhythms, and tone colors can make contributions to a work's plausible meanings that go beyond setting texts in an aesthetically satisfying manner. In some of Bach's vocal repertory, the music puts a "spin" on the words in a way that turns out to be explainable as orthodox Lutheran in its orientation. In a few of Bach's vocal works, his otherwise puzzlingly fierce musical settings serve to underscore now unrecognized or unacknowledged verbal polemics, most unsettlingly so in the case of his church cantatas that express contempt for Jews and Judaism. Finally, even Bach's secular instrumental music, particularly the late collections of "abstract" learned counterpoint, can powerfully project certain elements of traditional Lutheran theology. Bach's music is inexhaustible, and Bach & God suggests that through close contextual study there is always more to discover and learn.

"This eBook is about Robert Baker's life, our story together, and my family's search for answers about CJD. In 2001, my father passed away of a mysterious disease called Creutzfeldt Jakob Disease (CJD). He was a cancer researcher and an environmental scientist who was trying to help the world and save countless lives. After he died there was no investigation into his death, by either the police or the media, not even a coronial or OH&S inquiry. I often felt very alone and alienated by the world. This was when I decided to start writing my father's biography, and I found that delving into his life and holding onto his memory was a comfort to me. This book is about my father's life and achievements, how we dealt with his untimely death, and how a father and daughter's relationship changed in it's final days. This book is also for other people & families who have been affected by CJD. My book aims to help inform about the basics of CJD, but more importantly about dealing with the effects from a personal viewpoint."--Back cover.

The emergence of the modern age has been profoundly linked to massive changes in the way Western culture has struggled to come to terms with the Christian God. Many books have told that story. But none have paid attention to the way music has been intimately intertwined with these changes and struggles. Begbie shows that music bears its own kind of witness to some of the deepest convictions of modernity concerning mortality, freedom, faith, and hope.

'What is a self and how can a self come out of inanimate matter?' This is the riddle that drove Douglas Hofstadter to write this extraordinary book. In order to impart his original and personal view on the core mystery of human existence - our intangible sensation of 'I'-ness - Hofstadter defines the playful yet seemingly paradoxical notion of 'strange loop', and explicates this idea using analogies from many disciplines.
