Best Free Lunchtime Taste of Timeless Magnificence (2013)

Bach at Noon

No time for midday yoga or meditation? Tuesday through Friday, you can still seize hold of some inner peace by hustling into Grace Church for Bach at Noon, 30 minutes of Bach organ pieces performed by Patrick Allen, the organist and master of choristers, or organ scholar Phillip Lamb, between 12:20 and 12:50 p.m. Sometimes joyous, sometimes weighty, and sometimes sounding like glittering mathematics fugue-ing before God, these baroque "meditations" are soothing and thrilling at once, the experience a reminder even for unbelievers that there are things grander than us, that can unite us across time.
