Product Description:

Johann Sebastian Bach would seem right at home at a Christian homeschool gathering - he had twenty children! In The Gift of Music, we learn a great deal of biographical information about more than 30 of the greatest composers from the 1600's to the present. More importantly, we learn it from a Christian perspective. The authors are uniquely gifted to be our tour guides. Jane Stuart Smith is an opera singer who lectures on music at L'Abri Fellowship in Switzerland. Betty Carlson studied at the Conservatory of Music in Lausanne, Switzerland, and writes and works at L'Abri Fellowship. Together, they have crafted a book that is interesting, readable, and inspiring. So grab my favorite musical instrument (the tape player), play some selections from one of the featured musicians, then learn about the man behind the music.

We've enjoyed this book in the past, but unfortunately lost it, so we are re-purchasing it...a good addition to our bookshelves!
