JOHN S. SETTERLUND is an ordained minister of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, now retired. He has served as pastor of congregations in South Dakota and Illinois, and as campus pastor at the University of Illinois. A graduate of Luther Theological Seminary, he studied also at Wartburg Theological Seminary under Gordon W. Lathrop and Bach scholar Reuben G. Pirner. Bach Through the Year actually began during the 1985 Bach tercentenary, when the first complete recorded set of Bach’s church cantatas was published. Subsequently, alternatives were selected, commentaries written, and adjustments made according to minor changes in the lectionary and the hymnal; finally, listings were added to correlate with the lectionaries of the Lutheran Service Book and Christian Worship: A Lutheran Hymnal, as well as Evangelical Lutheran Worship.
