    Attached based upon what? All I can find is the mention on the IMDb page and IMDb can be edited by anybody who is registered.

    I wonder why they just don’t use the music of Bach himself for this score? After all, he was one of the world’s greatest composers and there is a treasure trove of music to pick from. Just sayin’
