College Celebrates Professor Larry Bennett's Book  
 

Professors Glen Helman and Joe Day take a closer look at the book.

Bennett tells the story of sitting down in the Harvard Music Library and being approached by another scholar.

'He asked me what I was working on, and I said, ‘Bononcini [one of the composers of baroque Italian cantatas]. He said, ‘Really. I’m studying Bononcini, too.’ No one else was studying Bononcini, and the only two were right there in the same place!

'We made peace, and he took the oratorios, and I took the cantatas, and we’ve become good friends over the years.'
