- 02/19/2007 - "I have just finished the
opening chorus of the Passion According to Matthew, Bach, Gibson and Ting. The
rest will come along piece by piece. I think I will have the entire movie done
by the March meeting. I will debut it then."
03/07/2007 - "I finished the movie
project and will premier it at the March meeting."
"I ripped the video images from Mel
Gibson's The Passion of Christ, and used them as the background for
Bach's The Passion According to St. Matthew. It is beautiful and very
impressive when you have poetry, music, and images to accompany the bible
story. I need a DVD player to show it. It is an one and half hour show. So, be
prepared to be bored if you have trouble with German and Chinese, or old Bach's
music. The subtitles are in German with Chinese translation. I planned to
include English translation, but did not have time to do it."
