UPDATE #2: Sound of Majesty Celebrates Bach's Birthday!

UPDATE:  Audio issues have been resolved and the show is now posted.

Today marks the anniversary of the birth of Johann Sebastian Bach.

Sound of Majesty will have it's entire program devoted to everyone's favorite Kantor.

You can catch the live broadcast at Midnight ET tonight over at Not planning to be up that late? The show will post here today and be archived here tomorrow.

And remember Iggy's soon-to-be-famous saying, "If it ain't baroque, fix it!"

Here's the Agnus Dei from Bach's "Mass in b-minor" (German: Messe en h-moll), complete with a bonafide countertenor (in other words, a male alto). One could do a series of posts just on this section, but this blogger has enough unfinished things on his plate, so just enjoy!
