If you're interested in Bach's children, a good place to start is CPE Bach, known to his pals as Carl Philippe Emmanuel; he wrote lovely, elegant music. A surprising number of J.S.'s children went on to be composers and musicians, although can you IMAGINE the pressure of being the child of someone that good! Poor old Johann Christoph hightailed it to London, just to make a fresh start! Might explain why he's known as the London Bach!

Default Bach Requiem?

Did Bach write a requiem? My music dictionary did not list one.

I don't see him listed on Wikipedia as having written one.

(interesting article by the way)

BTW, welcome to the VSM boards, Fred!

I think he only wrote music for Mass (which would include funeral Holy music), though doesn't have the typical requiem syle. He though has written many Beautiful Chorales for church.

Lightbulb

Contraception in the 18th century? Apart from if it was even possible, i doubt that if such a devout Christian would even do that. I mean, yeah, they weren't catholic or anything, but he died in 1750--not exactly when people were worrying about loads of kids or anything. plus, his job was composing music for a church. If he tried to use contraception maybe his church would've gotten mad or something. I'm not a historain, im' just 15 years old so im guessing, but that sounds reasonable.

and, in response to the rest of this, HAYDN INVENTED THE SYMPHONY, you idiots! he wasn' tcalled the "father of the symphony" just randomly! and, in case you forgot, Bach was BAROQUE, Haydn was CLASSICAL. they came after each other. thats like saying "did Washington have lightbulbs in his house? no!!
