Did You Know...

Bach and Handel, the two foremost composers of their time, never met, but missed each other once by only a day. In 1719, Handel was back in Germany, visiting family. Bach was stationed only about 20 miles away, in Köthen. Bach heard Handel was nearby, and walked all the way to Halle, only to find when he got there that Handel had left for London the day before.
