Letter from Albert Schweitzer
Besides Queen Elisabeth of Belgium, the doctor, theologian and musician Dr Albert Schweitzer was also made an honorary member of the Bach Society, in 1951. Schweitzer’s connection with the Bach Society dated back to 1928, when he gave organ concerts throughout the Netherlands in collaboration with some of the Bach Society choir members.
In this letter, Emmy Martin, Albert Schweitzer’s secretary, corresponds about the possibility of giving organ concerts in collaboration with the Bach Society again, just like in 1928. In the end, though, they did not take place.
