J.S. Bach's Material and Spiritual Treasures


This book explores theological themes related to earthly and heavenly 'treasures' in J.S. Bach's sacred music through an examination of selected texts from Bach's personal theological library. The chapters are organized around biblical ideas that are accented in Lutheran thought and in Bach's church compositions, such as the poverty and treasure of Christ and parables that contrast material and spiritual abundance. This book also surveys how Bach handled money personally and professionally, including a detailed assessment of his financial situation. NOELLE M. HEBER is a violinist and musicologist. She holds a PhD in musicology from Utrecht University (The Netherlands).
