[EAN: 9781443774147], Neubuch, [PU: Read Books], BRAND NEW PRINT ON DEMAND., The Bethlehem Bach Choir - An Historical And Interpretative Sketch, Raymond Walters, THE BETHLEHEM BACH CHOIR AN HISTORICAL AND INTERPRETATIVE SKETCH RAYMOND WALTERS I I REGISTRAR AND ASSISTANT PROFESSOR OF ENGLISH LEHIGH UNIVERSITY BOSTON AND NEW YORK HOUGHTON MIFFLIN COMPANY 1918 PREFACE 61 IT is to be said at the outset that this book is not the work of a musical critic, but ofan editor and annalist. By permission of my fellow-alumnus of Lehigh University, Dr. M. A. DeWolfe Howe, this statement is borrowed from his historical sketch of the Boton Symphony Orcheslra, an admirable book to which the present volume owes much in other respects than this prefatory quotation. This is an account of a choir that has gained distinction in American musical life. The exceptional historical background the Choir has had -with all that this means in inspiration and stimulus-is outlined. But there has been no minimizing of the early and present difficulties in maintaining the Bach Festivals. These singers of Bethlehem are not set apart by reason of talent or tradition or fortune. They are plain American citizens who have followed a leader in doing a work supremely worth while. Their success should be an encouragement to community choruses in other parts of the country because they have succeeded by qualities that all may emulate - devotion and concentration. Their recipe has been that which Bach himself gave when asked how he had brought his art to such per- fection I have had to work hard any one who will work equally hard will be able to do as much. For the preparation of the lists in the appendices of this book credit is due to Mrs. George W. Halliwell, Membership Secretary of the Bach Choir. RAYMOND WALTERS CONTENTS I.
