JS Bach BWV 60 O Ewigkeit du Donnerwort


This cantata is a dialogue between fear (reinforced by the alto) and hope (that’s the tenor); a fitting accompaniment to a talk about the different thoughts and feelings that music can evoke.


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.
