Anyway, this brings me to a question for you preachers out there: What do you most like to listen to while you study Scripture in preparation for Sunday’s messages? My personal favorite is something that was recommended to me about two years ago by my mentor in all things cultural, Paul Lamey, and that is Simply Baroque II. On this CD, cellist Yo-Yo Ma performs some brilliant pieces composed by Luigi Boccherini and Johann Sebastian Bach. I’ve never listened to the prequel Simply Baroque—also performed by Ma—but Paul assures me that the sequel is superior. So take up and listen!
And how about you? What kind of music accompanies you in your study as you seek to rightly divide the Word of God? Any recommendations?
