In this live-action move, young Elizabeth gets a surprise visit from the great composer Bach! After the dramatic send off of his music into space aboard Voyager II, Mr. Bach appears at the house of a present-day girl, who is awkwardly practicing his famous Minuet in G. Mr. Bach reminisces about his life and music, and Elizabeth learns, along with three of Bach's choir boys, about his twenty children, his time in jail and his devotion to the church. Elizabeth moves form skepticism to respect for Bach's good-humored nature and musical brilliance. Not until the very end does he reveal the reason for his visit, 'So that my music will never again be forgotten... for wherever my music is being played, I am alive.'
