Who would you like to be?

Posted by Dave Bath on 2008-02-15


In a fit of whimsy I’m inviting comments about what historical (named or not) figure you’d like to be, and start it with my own selfish preference.  I’d like to be an eighteenth century German janitor.

Of course, not just any cleaner, but one that worked in the church Bach worked at, able to listen while working not merely to the rehearsals of the next week’s cantata, but to hear his improvisations at the organ, things that would never again be heard.
