Bach signed most of his work with. To the Greater Glory of God
"I remember reading for the first time in my freshman year a simple
statement by this master musician. Bach said, "Music's only purpose
should be the glory of God and the recreation of the human spirit." The
more I pondered this sentence, the more it liberated my heart. Music
was given to glorify God in heaven and to edify men and women on earth.
It wasn't to make lots of money, or to meet my ego needs, or to see my
name in lights. Music was about blessing the Lord and blessing others.
After months of auditions, rehearsals, recitals, and competitions, the
simplicity of Bach's statement was a balm for my soul." Patrick Kavanaugh/ October 14, 2005
