         'Twas just a thought. Mozart is transparent compared with Bach's 
density. Mozart is more sunny; Bach more serious. Mozart more 
straightforward; Bach more complex.
         The comparison works for me and you; maybe not for everyone here.
         Not a quality judgment. Two different geniuses. I love Vance. I'm 
a subscriber to the Compleat Vance.
