COMING FULL CIRCLE

In 1948, when I was fourteen, I fell in love with Susie.  On occasion, I would walk her home from school, and we would listen to Bach's B Minor Mass on old 78 rpm records, with one of those new-fangled players that had an automatic changer, so that you could load up a stack of 78s and sit back.  The recording was by Robert Shaw conducting the Collegiate Choral.  Tomorrow evening, sixty-four years later, we shall hear a performance at UNC of the B Minor Mass with Ton Koopman and the Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra and Choir.  There is a certain metaphysical unity to our lives, I like to think.
