How wonderful!
I listened to a radio show about the history of Baroque music recently and at one point, the narrator asked people to send in via twitter what comes to mind when hearing this music. There were many responses relating to feeling a sense of greatness and sacredness and some relating to the mathematical structure of the compositions and A LOT of people wrote that what first came to mind was waxed, powdered faces and smelly wigs and unwashed people dancing stiffly.
