Poem about Bach | 23-Aug-11

I must say, my romantic soul responds
to see CPE after old JC Bach
Yet even here still strange paternal bonds.

It is Beethoven and Bach, they tell me
And a very fat volume, a German tutor,
That cost 6 shillings before the war.
And it's pages, they tell me are black with notes
