  • Pittsburgh the City of Bridges

    My city of Pittsburgh has the distinction of having the most bridges which support cars of any city in the world! I’m talking about large sized bridges not tiny wood or stone small bridges over ponds and streams! All of our bridges are capable of handling cars. Other cities have small footbridges, small bridges over […]

  • Emma Kirkby

    Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen by J.S. Bach BWV 51 The first time I heard this performance was in autumn of 1995 at the store Audio Options on Forbes Ave. in Squirrel Hill, a neighborhood of Pittsburgh, with my dear friend Bany. We used to frequently stop by there to see what CDs they had […]

  • Bach Magnifcat

    Magnificat in E-flat Major BWV 243a Composed in Leipzig, 1728-1731. First performed in Leipzig on either July 2nd or Christmas Day – December 25th, 1723.  Note: This work is not to be confused with Bach’s Magnificat in D Major (BWV 243) which is a revision of BWV 243a. This is my favorite performance of this […]

  • More on Bach's Mass in B Minor

  • Silent Holocaust

    Since 1973 when the US Supreme Court legalized abortion, in the Roe v. Wade case, there have been over 63 million children murdered in cold blood by their mothers! Think of what these children could have accomplished as doctors, engineers, scientists, musicians, artists, filmmakers, teachers, lawyers, etc. I’m convinced someone from this genocide would have […]

  • Calvinism Explained

      I’m a Calvinist. That means I subscribe to the 5 points of Calvinism. The Doctrines of God’s free and sovereign grace are more easily remembered by the acrostic TULIP. These 5 points of Calvinism were not invented by John Calvin. They came from the Synod of Dordt (1618-1619) where leading Reformed thinkers came together […]

  • Eschatology Considered

    In my eschatology (the study of the End Times), I’m a premillennial dispensationalist. I believe in a return of Christ before the 1,000 year Millennium in which Christ will rule the earth from Jerusalem. I also believe in a pretribulation rapture of the Church, where Christ will meet us, His saints, in the air. We’ll […]
