Johann Sebastian Bach was a church musician, organist, music director, avid coffee drinker, and one of the greatest composers of all time. He was also a devout Christian who sought to honor God through his music. He once said, “the aim and final end of all music should be none other than the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul.” Many of his scores he signed with SDG (soli Deo Gloria) to the glory of God.
Bach lived from March 21, 1685 to July 28, 1750. In celebration of his birthday I have posted some of his music arranged for classical guitar. Download the free PDF sheet music and enjoy. One of my favorite is the chorale “Herr Gott dich loben alle wir” (Lord God, we all praise You). It is a wonderful setting by Bach of the tune OLD 100th, also known as the Doxology.
