about

Johann Sebastian Bach has been a big musical presence in my life from the time that I was little. Whether played as written, or arranged by great musicians such as Wendy Carlos or The Swingle Singers, Bach's jazzy music has remained a constant for me. Similarly, the NES entered my life early. I have always wanted to hear Bach's music rendered on the NES's 2A03, but have had trouble finding other recordings of such. Therefore, I decided to make this album of music. I hope that you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed making.

Track Name: Cantata No. 78: Wir eilen mit schwachen, doch emsigen Schritten (BWV 78)
Wir eilen mit schwachen, doch emsigen Schritten,
O Jesu, o Meister, zu helfen zu dir.
Du suchest die Kranken und Irrenden treulich.
Ach höre, wie wir
Die Stimmen erheben, um Hülfe zu bitten!
Es sei uns dein gnädiges Antlitz erfreulich!
Track Name: Cantata No. 4: Es war ein wunderlicher Krieg (BWV 4)
Es war ein wunderlicher Krieg,
Da Tod und Leben rungen,
Das Leben behielt den Sieg,
Es hat den Tod verschlungen.
Die Schrift hat verkündigt das,
Wie ein Tod den andern fraß,
Ein Spott aus dem Tod ist worden.
Halleluja!
