For Johann Sebastian there was always music. His family had been musicians, or bachs as they were called in Germany, for two hundred years.

As he grew, he saw patterns in everything. Patterns he would turn into melodies and song, eventually growing into one of the most important and celebrated musical composers of all time.

This well-researched, engaging look at the life of Johann Sebastian Bach, told from his perspective, is accompanied with gorgeous, almost magical acrylic paintings by author and artist Tom Leonard.
