JS Bach BWV 18 Gleich wie Der Regen

THE MUSIC

This cantata has a dark-hued flavour due to its unusual instrumentation which includes four violas. It opens with a musical depiction of rain and falling snow, and the lurking devil is evoked in the dramatic prayer ‘My soul’s treasure is God’s word’.

THE SCIENCE

How does music communicate meaning, and how does the brain process its patterns? The neuroscience of music is beginning to elucidate how music contributes to the experience of Eudaimonia, a life well-lived.
