Item Description...
Overview
Back in print! We love the Wheeler & Deucher composers` series from the mid-20th century. This classic work for children will be enjoyed by all family members. We are amazed how much history, biographical material, and music are included in each work. Sebastian Bach, The Boy of Thuringia is the first complete work on the life of Bach ever written for children. Every important incident is mentioned and every detail of the story is true. It is filled with vivid descriptions of Bach`s childhood: how he sat up many nights and copied music by the light of the moon, and how he walked two hundred miles to a choir school at Luneburg. Then his adult life: how he helped his wife Magdalena put the twenty children to bed every night; how he spread brown bread with honey for them to eat every afternoon; and how he taught them all to sing and play different musical instruments. The music reproduced here represents all of the different kinds of music that Bach ever wrote. A child can never really know music unless he knows Bach, for his contribution is the foundation and structural basis of all music. But it is more the human side of this book that will make it live, for in it the great master breathes. All who read it will know himnot only as a musical genius, but also as an eager child, an affectionate father, and a lovable human being.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Informative, with authentic b&w illustrations  Sep 14, 2006
I plan on using this book (and others by the same authors) with middle schoolers in a Lutheran school Music class. Apparently it also comes with a study guide. My only complaint is, where is the accompanying CD? The excerpts of musical scores included all say "Track 1" or "Track 10" on them, which means to me that there must have been/be an accompanying music disc.
The text is large, probably simple enough for 3rd graders to read. I like Mary Greenwalt's illustrations, in black and white, of which there is one on every page or couple of pages.
This book was originally published in 1937 and I don't think it has changed since.
A good resource for meaty information on Bach, for children.
