Everybody's under God's planet, and God is the Almighty, the Beginning, the End, the Alpha, the Omega. He's Big Daddy. He gives out these little soldiers and sons and angels and saints to help everybody else get through to him. I'm not the 'Jesus only or you're going to Hell' kind of guy.
If you have a piece by Bach, he often develops the piece to such a high level that you can hardly do much more to it. But Saint Luc wrote very simple baroque music, and so if you do not embellish it, it just falls apart. It's way too simple.
