Resolution

From now on, I resolve to sign my work not with my name nor my initials, but with the signet SDG. Let there be no more of me; let there only be Him in and through me, and me in and through Him.

"In the Latin Bible at Romans 16:27 and Jude 25 we find the words "Soli Deo Gloria"—"to the only God be glory." This was to become J.S.B.’s motto. He would sign his works—whether sacred, such as "The St. Matthew Passion," or "secular," such as the light-hearted "Coffee Cantata," with these letters: S.D.G.

Actually, to Bach there was no difference between sacred and secular. All works, he maintained, should be to the glory of God." ARTHUR L. FARSTAD


He must increase, but I must decrease. John 3:30
