Sanders, Ernest H.

It is my great good fortune to have known Christopher Hatch since the fall of 1950, when both of us entered Columbia University as graduate stu-dents of historical musicology. His superior qualities became readily ap-parent to fellow students and faculty alike. During his entire subsequent teaching career at Columbia, Chris was sought out by students and col-leagues for his perspicacious, yet always tactful instruction, comment, and advice. "He makes us think," I heard students say, as they became engaged by this gifted teacher. The combination of his musicality and keen intelli-gence, often laced with a fine sense of humor, has been of great benefit to all.
