Virginia Woolf in Westminster - 17 April, 1920
from The diary of Virginia Woolf. Vol.2, 1920-1924, page 31:
To the Bach festival last night; & coincidence led me to run at once into two people I've not met for an age, Noel, for one; then, as I settled into my seat, a voice said it was Virginia! It was Walter Lamb. The egg-shaped man - the billiard ball man - sat by me, & told me a great deal about Bach. Bach was very beautiful, though the human element in the choir always distracts me. They aren't beautiful; all in greens, greys, pinks, blacks, fresh from the suburbs and high tea. The hall seemed to suit them better than the music.
