RE: J.S. Bach in the House

IIRC, Bach wanted to take a better job at Anhalt-Cothen and was put in jail
for "resigning too eagerly" by his employer (the Duke of Weimar ?). It's
been awhile since I read this.

		I'm not sure of the crime, but I know JSB was treated well
in prison -- they

occasionally he was

		Toccata go now --

		Really?  J.S. did some time in the Big House?
		I guess I missed that part.  What was the charge...
		too many parallel octaves in a Burlesca?  Fill us in, Bob...
