Navigation for Spiritual Outlook

Amelia Nurse joins Erin Halyard, harpsichordist and lecturer in historical performance at the NZ School of Music to discuss the role of numbers in music and especially in Bach’s music. They discuss recordings and play live examples to try to get to the bottom of the centuries old question: to what degree did Bach used numbers to convey hidden meaning in his music.
