In music today we were introduced to Bach who lived at the same time as Handel and he also wore a wig. He had 20 children! We talked about the organ that he wrote music for. We listened to his music in a mindful way and this is what we observed:
Marnie: It sounded like it should have been the end when it was actually the start.
Manou: It sounded like music from a funeral.
Theo: It sounded like the musician was playing 3 notes at once. (We then talked about chords)
Yusuf: It sounded mixed up like it had been put back together in a new order.
Olivia: I thought it sounded scary.
Luca: It sounded like there was an argument going on between the left hand and the right had.
Marlo spotted the silences in between the music.
Here is video of the music I will show you tomorrow to demonstrate what the organ looks like, how the hands work together and how to play the chords: Bach – Toccata and Fugue in D minor
