Germany: Bach Monument

Today I got three postcards: two from Germany and one from Spain.

One of the cards from Germany shows the Bach Monument in Leipzig. The Bach Monument was unveiled in 1908. Johann Sebastian Bach became in 1723 the chanter of the Thomaskirche in Leipzig. In Leipzig he composed the St Matthew Passion, the Christmas Oratorio and The Art of Fugue. On 28th July 1750 Johann Sebastian Bach died in Leipzig.
