that pass away or give up their reign for different reasons, it can be somewhat
saddening to know that that person or position is no longer in place. This is
particularly true when you think about how all of Bach’s family is deceased and
that the music we have now will be the only music coming from the Bach family
for the rest of time. At the same time, it is very interesting to know what king
was the last king of Afghanistan, or when Egypt was no longer recognized as a
