Bernstein's Mass

Dear Friends,

Last night I went to hear a student in one of my classes who asked me to come -- she was in the individualized choruses of Bernstein's Mass sung and partly acted out at GMU's Performing Arts Center. I was moved towards the end. I did wish it had not been connected to the religious doctrines it was; it partly kept spoiling it for me; more generally the outlook of the words limited its generosity of reach. Some passages so reminded me of West Side Story, music and tones :)
