Bach Documentary

While surfing the Internet looking for material to share with my online music appreciation class, I found an amazing documentary on the life and music of J.S. Bach.  Bach: A Passionate Life was produced by the BBC with narration by the English conductor, John Eliot Gardiner. The documentary is extremely interesting and contains excerpts from many of Bach's sacred works, including the St. John and St. Matthew Passions as well as the Mass in B Minor.  Approximately 90 minutes in duration, it is a worthy investment for every musician and music lover.
