Today’s Briefing: Quick Links


“By now we have seen that one of Bach’s monumental achievements was to show that music and language together can do things which neither can do separately. But he also proves that music sometimes surpasses language, whether written or spoken, in its capacity to penetrate to the innermost recesses of consciousness and to chip away at people’s prejudices and our sometimes toxic patterns of thinking. We can still turn to his cantatas and motets for enlightenment (with a small e ) about sin, redemption, evil or repentance, with no more difficulty than we can to, say, a widely read nineteenth-century writer like Dostoevsky –someone who ‘found in the Christian religion the only solution to the riddle of existence’ and who ‘uncovered a volcanic crater in every human being’. Bach in fact makes it a great deal easier for us to focus on the injunction to love one’s neighbour than on all the filth and horror of the world. We emerge from performing or listening to a Bach motet chastened, maybe, but more often elated, such is the cleansing power of the music. There is not a whiff here of those ‘foul fumes of religious fervour’ that Richard Eyre sees today ‘spreading sanctimoniousness and intolerance throughout the globe, while those far-from-exclusively Christian virtues –love, mercy, pity, peace –are choked.’”

–John Eliot Gardiner, from “Bach: Music in the Castle of Heaven” (2013). [Click on the image or the link to buy the book.]

Palm Coast Construction and Development Progress Reports

Updates of ongoing permitting, construction and development projects in Palm Coast usually run here, along with a link to the city’s Week in Review. But the Week in Review, under the guise of being modernized, has become flashier and power-point like while becoming less substantive and dumbed down. We may or may not link to it in future. Here’s a summary of the latest developments as of Oct. 6
