From Peter Hallock:

“Dear friends, rather than send you a batch of cookies to celebrate the season, Roger Sherman and I offer this moment of things past: an event which took place on an ordinary date, in an ordinary place, and attended by ordinary people.

“As a performance of early music, the concert was an historic event, in part because of its very ordinariness. For me, it was a watermark that measured a shift from when such performances would more likely have taken place on a select date, in a select place (perhaps the salons of Paris, London, or Manhattan), and before an audience of the haute monde, devoted primarily to being seen. In contrast, Roger and myself were performing as two Seattle natives in ‘historic’ Beer Town.

“May all your Christmases be merry and bright.”
