Bach Said All Music Should Glorify God
J. S. Bach said, “All music should have no other end and aim than the glory of God and the soul’s refreshment; where this is not remembered there is no real music but only a devilish hub-bub.” He headed his compositions: “J. J.” “Jesus Juva” which means “Jesus help me.” He ended them “S. D. G.” “Soli Dei gratia” which means “To God alone be the praise.” (Kingdom Conflict, J. Stowell, Victor, 1985, pp. 77ff).
