"The greatest job application ever written..."

J. S. Bach was an employee all his life. In his 47-year working career, he held six very different musical jobs. For nearly all those years, he received a paycheck. Cash actually. Plus bushels of wheat and barley, firewood, and sometimes even beer.

In this fascinating 55-minute lecture, David Gordon describes the major events in Bach's "job history", and interweaves the amazing story of the Mass in B Minor - the greatest job application ever written!
