The GMG search engine has never been particularly good (though using the advancec search improves matters), but I think it is currently down. Searching for "Bach" didn't return any results either.... which seems highly improbable!  :D

Must be a glitch due to the server transfer...

I frequent another forum that uses this same software/layout/whatever it's called, and the search function there is not good either.
