Re: The Bach Choral Dilemma

Hello Leon,

Unfortunately this posting was ascribed to me incorrectly (as is
evident - I don't have wife - though I do have a husband).  I had
responded to an earlier posting by Sigard Saue.

Best regards,

Diana Deutsch

Why does Diana describe such sad stories in which a wife
obliges her guy to listen to interpretations he does not like?
Why is the player not allowed to pause for each bass note?
Why do you believe in one god in the era of scientific polytheism?

 Excuse my ignorance, but if performance can cause such a huge difference,
 then shouldn't it be denoted somehow in the music sheet?
