I'm a happy witch tonight. Picked Dorkboy up from the airport late last night, went to sleep in his arms, woke up in his arms, and the day has been wonderful. And home is clean tonight because I made it so, save the floors, which I'll deal with tomorrow. Dorkboy is so much better suited to do grocery shopping than me.

This is one of my all time favourite Bach pieces (yes, another one), although I think this is just about the worst version I've come across.

This is a much better version, although, unfortunately, no visual action:

As a child, I owned it as an album, played on original instruments, which rather spoiled me. The nearest to it I've found recently is Con Gioia's Early Music Ensemble, but I couldn't find that one on youtube.

And here is a rather interesting version of Bach's Toccata and fugue in D Minor:

And just because this post wouldn't be complete with this:
