Stop, stop, stop. I want you to think about this first: The Necrology of 1750, the first biography of the composer Johann Sebastian Bach, is also available as an audio book. With music and without music. Entertainment, in other words. But that really isn't exciting at all if you have already read through it before. End of the "announcement".
Wonderful, you now have the choice of four versions. You can now enjoy this exciting first biography about the life of Johann Sebastian Bach in four different ways.
First there is the audio book: That's 20 minutes of text and on top of that there are additional 18 minutes of music. That makes a relaxed 38 minutes and you can listen to the whole thing spoken by a professional narrator. Quite in the style of the time back then, because that's how people talked about 270 years ago. "Johann Sebastian Bach had a "stupid face" towards the end of his life is one expression in the entertaining audio read.
Read the necrology in the old German language and also in the old font of that time. It's not possible that fast. But you didn't want to "get through" quickly either. Or maybe you did. If you feel like it now, just click to "Bach on Bach" and you will find the appropriate page.
Here you can read the necrology at least in a modern font. And what is 270 years old German in it, you can manage yourself. Here you get there.
Or you can spontaneously skip the necrology or save it for later. Which is why? Because you might want to watch the biography as a video in a nine-minute short cute Bach biography.
