今天是feast day(圣人的庆日) of Johann Sebastian Bach(31 March [O.S. 21 March] 1685 – 28 July 1750), George Frideric Handel, and Henry Purcell
The liturgical calendar of the Episcopal Church remembers Bach annually with a feast day on 28 July, together with George Frideric Handel and Henry Purcell; the Calendar of Saints of the Lutheran Church, on the same day remembers Bach and Handel with Heinrich Schütz. In other circles, Bach's music is bracketed with the literature of William Shakespeare and the science of Isaac Newton.
The calendar of saints is a traditional Christian method of organizing a liturgical year by associating each day with one or more saints and referring to the day as the feast day or feast of said saint. (The word "feast" in this context does not mean "a large meal, typically a celebratory one", but instead "an annual religious celebration, a day dedicated to a particular saint".)
圣人历是基督教整理教会年历的传统方法。把每一天和一个或多个圣人联系起来，而叫这天做圣人的庆日（feast day）。这个系统源起于非常早期的基督教传统，在烈士逝世的日子或者在天堂出生的日子，每年纪念烈士，于是拉丁文称做：dies natalis（出生的日子）。
