Music for the Pastor's Study: Part XIII. Beethoven

There is something so very intimate about the Piano Sonatas of Beethoven, not only those with the most famous adagios, such as the Moonlight Sonata (No. 14) and the Pathetique (No. 8), but even the more bombastic, like the Hammerklavier (No. 29). Not surprisingly, for our purposes here, the Pastoral (No. 15) is a favorite.
