First of all, I would like to thank you for your enormous effort you put in the Bach cantatas page.

As a rookie, but eager Bach enthusiast, only since 2001, I am enchanted with your page. It is the biggest, the best and the most adequate source of information concerning Johann Sebastian Bach, his music, performers etc.

[After adding theBio and Bach Discograpohy pages of Richard Burgin]
Thank you. I am very happy that my father is included on the Bach site and I think he would be too. Bach was his favorite composer and he was well known among musicians not only for his Bach performances but for his insights into Bach's violin works, especially matters of bowing, phrasing and articulation. It is really a pity that he did not record more. <>

I plan to use the BCW extensively throughout the course and plan to have the students consult the site as well. If anything, the course will hopefully expand BCW exposure just a little bit. I've also been in contact with Thomas directly about this course, and he will be an invaluable resource as well. Thanks everyone.
