  1. Why did you delete my comment? figures you would prefer masonic mozart over the mighty JS Bach! history repeats itself yet again, that is exactly what happened in Bach’s day, the masses chose the inquisition over the man of God. very sad. here’s what Wikipedia has to say about some of mason Mozart’s Jesuit theater music

    “Although Beaumarchais’s Marriage of Figaro was at first banned in Vienna because of its licentiousness,[1] Mozart’s librettist managed to get official approval for an operatic version which eventually achieved great success.”

  2. My apology, I just watched the sermon “naked” and realize that I am without Christs character in my haste. I therefore rebuke myself with Ephesians 4:26,29

    “Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:..Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.”

    Here is another wiki quote about mozart

    The Magic Flute and Freemasonry:
    The Magic Flute is noted for its prominent Masonic elements; Schikaneder and Mozart were Masons and lodge brothers (see: Mozart and Freemasonry). The opera is also influenced by Enlightenment philosophy, and can be regarded as an allegory advocating enlightened absolutism. The Queen of the Night represents a dangerous form of obscurantism or, according to some, the anti-Masonic Empress Maria Theresa.[11] Her antagonist Sarastro symbolises the enlightened sovereign who rules according to principles based on reason, wisdom, and nature. The story itself portrays the education of mankind, progressing from chaos through religious superstition to rationalistic enlightenment, by means of trial (Tamino) and error (Papageno), ultimately to make “the Earth a heavenly kingdom, and mortals like the gods”. (“Dann ist die Erd’ ein Himmelreich, und Sterbliche den Göttern gleich.” This couplet is sung in the finales to both acts.)

    2 Kings 3:15
    But now bring me a minstrel. And it came to pass, when the minstrel played, that the hand of the LORD came upon him.

  3. Here’s a nice counter reformation Jesuit work, definitely not JS Bach’s!

    The Mass in B minor (BWV 232) by Johann Sebastian Bach is a musical setting of the complete Latin Mass. The work was one of Bach’s last, not completed until 1749, the year before his death. Much of the Mass gave new form to some of the vocal music that Bach had composed throughout his career, dating back (in the case of the “Crucifixus”) to 1714, almost always extensively revised. To complete the work, however, in the late 1740s Bach composed new sections of the Credo such as “Et incarnatus est”. The completed Mass was his last major composition.

    It was unusual for composers working in the Lutheran tradition to compose a Missa tota and Bach’s motivations remain a matter of scholarly debate. The Mass was never performed in totality during Bach’s lifetime; the first documented complete performance took place in 1859. Since the nineteenth century it has been widely hailed as one of the greatest compositions in history, and today it is frequently performed and recorded
