Moving forward

A little more Johann Sebastian Bach, and some Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck. Sweelinck was born 123 years before Bach and 405 years before me. That's a long time ago. What a legacy, centuries after your death, to have musicians around the planet not only play your compositions, but also digitally film the performances on pocket-sized devices and upload the data to this intangible thing called YouTube. What further excursions is this music destined for in the next few centuries?
