Bach’s music is ubiquitous, from commercials to ring tones, and it still sells out concert venues worldwide. Paul Elie reexamines the life of one of the greatest composers of all time in his new book Reinventing Bach.
Next, Mary Sharratt’s book Illuminations: A Novel of Hildegard von Bingen gives a secular look into the life of this twelfth-century abbess who welcomed controversy and nearly died an outcast. Bob and Sharratt discuss this book and von Bingen’s reason for rebellion.
Then, Bob talks sports with John Feinstein, Washington Post columnist and co-host of SiriusXM’s “Beyond the Brink” (Mad Dog Radio, channel 86). [Broadcast Date: November 8, 2012]
