about

In this current work, Foretastes of Heavenly Music: Johann Mattheson and Christoph Raupach on Music in Time and Eternity, Irwin provides translations and commentary for two 18th-century texts that illuminate the musico-theological foundation underlying the work of Lutheran composers such as Bach and Telemann.
