Scotland, gave a programme of sacred music yesterday

The programme opened with a short mass by Buxtehude,

and there was also a cantata by the same composer. It

included a choral piece and a motet by Bach, both of which

were sensitively rendered by the choir, and a choral piece

by Zeuner.


Mr Jarvis, welcoming the singers, said that the visit of such

a group helped people to understand the new Germany and

the problems with which Germans were grappling.”
