Anyone who reads Johann Nikolaus Forkel’s concise and pioneering biography of Bach (1802) and Philipp Spitta’s magnifying and almost overwhelming biography (1873/1880) will come across two very different portraits of the German composer.

He ends his study, a few dozen pages later, in this same vein: “And this man —the greatest musical poet and the greatest musical orator that ever existed, and who probably will exist— he was a German. Be proud of him, homeland; be proud, but also be worthy of him!” …
