My Friend,
I believe you would have been touched to see how attentively and precisely our students
prepared your Mass. This is a group of young people who really know your work by heart.
The performance they gave was so clean, so sober, and so comprehensive. Among others, we
have worked on Dumbarton Oaks, the Symphonie, Deux Psaumes [sic], the Canticum Sacrum,
The Flood; you know what these works represent for me. It does one good to see young people
understanding works of such importance.
I send all my love and am always your,
NB
