|PUBL. DATA:||Original correspondence. (To the editor of the Musical World.) [Correspondent believes Bach's centenary should be celebrated; problems encountered in the performance of Bach's compositions] ['Some years ago, I presented the Sacred Harmonic Society with a copy of Bach's Mass, in B minor, on the condition that it should be performed. The society gave it up in despair after the first rehearsal. The superior skill of Mr. Costa would be well tested by making a fresh trial of this work, and prove further the advantage gained by placing a great conductor over the Sacred Harmonic Society.']|
