In 1723, Bach finished his No. 139 cantata Believe in God, God Blesses (Wohl dem, der sich auf seinen Gott, BWV 139) to express his love for the Lord. The name of this cantata perfectly described Bach's life of pure belief. Although new music forms are constantly being created, people have never given up on upholding tradition and faith. As time passes by, when fashion trends become classics, and persistence solidifies into greatness, classical works act as a mirror for people to slow down and reflect upon their true selves.
