The Art of the Fugue

by Peter Saint-Andre

How these twelve notes soar and tumble,
Calming my soul in streams of sound.
As lines entwine and themes embrace,
Bracing logic dissolves my cares.

Calming my soul in streams of sound,
Bach weaves his magic mastery.
Bracing logic dissolves my cares;
Creation fills me up with wonder.

Bach weaves his magic mastery
As lines entwine and themes embrace.
Creation fills me up with wonder:
How these twelve notes soar and tumble!
