Writer's Block: Time in a bottle
Imagine that you have a time machine. Which deceased musician would you most want to travel back in time to watch perform live?

Obvious, really. Bach. In Leipzig.

What, only one? I'd feel like Buridan's donkey, who starved because he could not choose among the appetizing heaps of hay in front of him.

Fond though I am of Bach and Handel

Since I have the world's biggest musical crush on Henry Purcell (and I don't even know where he performed, I just adore every bit of his music), and since in fact I sang one of his most gorgeous pieces of music today, there can only be one possible choice.

Though what I'd really want to do is travel back far enough in time to vaccinate him against TB - so that he wouldn't die so young, with so much unwritten.

(excuse me while I sit over here in the corner having a crush on Purcell. His music is truly sublime...)
