@Ken Fraser
Very nicely done.
Are the words "Johann Sebastian Bach" Written in an Old English variant of some kind? Does this script have a name or who did it originally? Very pretty.

This is a variation of a Gothic script called Textura. There are many variations of Gothic Blackletter scripts and this is just one. This was the first style of lettering I learnt, and being Germanic in origin I used it for Bach's name.
