Letter: A Great Performance of Bach

To the Editor:

On Sunday, May 19, I had the pleasure of attending the Handel Society performance of Bach’s St. Matthew Passion. It was one of the best performances I have ever heard. This monumental Bach masterpiece is an extremely demanding one to perform, but the combined group of chorus, musicians, soloists and children’s choir was more than equal to the task.

They worked together under the skilled direction of Robert Duff to interpret Bach’s work in a most professional way. We are extremely fortunate to have this group here in the Upper Valley. On that Sunday afternoon, I was tremendously proud of Dartmouth.
