As always, Will and I alternated in chatting to the hall, he introducing the Debussy groups, I introducing mine. And as always, before War Scenes, I explained that although there's no such thing as Political Music - not at least in the sense that music can change rather than merely heighten our feelings about things (music doesn't turn bad people good) - I had nevertheless in 1969 wanted to make a statement about the Vietnam War, as a pacifist and a Quaker. I added that Whitman's prose, although pertaining to the Civil War, could as well pertain to the Trojan War, or to Korea, or to last week's laceration of Tripoli.
