Bach Suite No. 4 in Eb major - Sarabande
by Derek Handley, Cello
Bach’s Cello Suites are naturally reflective music, and fitting for the season of Lent, as we spend another season looking into ourselves in attempts to see what is broken and simply to “check in.”
As you listen to this Sarabande from Bach’s 4th suite, focus first on what is good in your life. God labeled everything he made GOOD, including (and especially) you. When the music turns anxious (minor key), focus on all that gives you anxiety, and embrace it. Then, as the original music returns, give that all to your Creator, and be grateful that you are good in her eyes.
