The next book for book club is James R. Gaines' Evening in the Palace of Reason. This history recounts Johann Sebastian Bach meeting Frederick the Great. Frederick set the changing tastes of Europe at the time and "old Bach" was seen as a curmudgeon of the old ways. Frederick's court, including Bach's own son, set a musical test they thought the old master couldn't pass. Not only did Bach compose a masterpiece answer, his A Musical Offering testified to his faith. This book not only tells the story of that encounter but of the conflict between worldviews, between faith and reason, between parents and children.
