29jul6:00 pmMount Angel Abbey Bach FestivalSweet! Chocolate and Bach's French Connection


Event Details

When cacao arrived via Spain into France, chocolate became the fashion of the day at the royal court of Versailles and throughout Europe. Not adverse to the exotic flavor, J.S. Bach’s music was performed in the Coffeehouse Zimmerman and the French Riquet family’s store in Leipzig, offering sweets like chocolate and pralines. It goes without saying that Bach savored both the chocolate as well as French music. After all, French baroque music is to the ear what chocolate is to our taste buds: a symphony of ecstatic sensations. Anticipate chocolate treats!
