Still enjoyable, if somewhat dated
19 February 2008 | by (decline to answer) – See all my reviews

I remember borrowing this video from the church library when I was about 8 or 9. I was very much a "classical kid" and found this documentary fascinating. A shot that has stayed with me through the years is where actor Brian Blessed, in the character of J.S.Bach, disappears from one side of the frame at the end of a scene, and re-appears moments later as himself (narrating) on the other side of the frame. The film is somewhat dated, though (the hairstyles and roller skates of the Brooklyn Boys Choir, the discussion of the "recent" development of the Moog synthesizer), but that shouldn't detract from your enjoyment.
