CAMPBELL MEMORIAL HALL CONCERT. • •- In oonnection with the series of popular enter- tainments in the Campbell Memorial Hall, a concert was given on Saturday evening which may be referred to as fully entitled to a place :n the first musical rank. The love of vocal music and the cultivation of the art was evidently the inspiring motives of the performers, most of whom, if not all, have appeared on other and ly t I possibly more classical platforms. There was an absence of the pianoforte solo—the only thing in oonnection with the programme, perhaps, which never would be mi.s.sco-but there were plenty of fluent, sympathetic and subordinate accompani- ments which would delight the most ardent lovers of the instrument. The soloists were Madame Agnes Croxton ^soprano), Mr. A. Greenwood (tenor), Mr. A. M. Proctor (baritone) and Mr. C. James (bass). Mrs. Owen and Mrs. C. Rich- mond were the pianists, and the whole were under the direction of Mr. E. S. Giles, who held a. skriful baton. The programme consisted of English ballads and glees-— all old and familiar friend*, evergreen and everlasting. There was "Sir Knight, Sir Knight" (Macaroni), "lierc, in oool grot" (Lord Moruington), Ye Mariners of England" (Pienson), "0 Happy Fair" (Shield), "The Song of the Vikings" (Eaton Faning), Sinoe first I saw your face" (Ford), and "Good- night, thou glorious Soun" (Smart). Where all was excellence, and sung by some thirty or more exoellent and experienced performed, it seems superfluous to make special mention. But "Since tirst I saw your face," for balance of parts, ex- pression and precision, was certainly a perfect bit of harmony. Among the solos mention should be made of Mr. C. James's fine rendering of the old English ballad, When the King enjoys his own again." Mr. A. M. Proctor gave all the robust. and powerful character ot the solo in Ye Mariners of England, and the 17th century song, The Vicar of Bray," could not have been better eung. Mr. J. H. Ditohburn, who was on the programme for this eong, was unfortunately unable to appear through indisposition. Mr. Proctor was equally at home in his I attempt from love's sickness to fly (Purcell). Mr. A. Greenwood, who possesses one of those rich, rare, and almost rc-edy tenor voices, gave "Sally in our Alley" (17th oentury) and The Bailiff's Daughter of Isling- ton (traditional), both enjoyable performances. Of Madame Agnes Croxton it may be said that she sang delightfully. The difficult but ever- welcome Should he upbraid (Sir H. R. Bic-hop) met with every appreciation, as it deserved, and another song of songs, Where the bee sucks" (Dr. Arne) compelled the lady to reappear in response to a double encore from the delighted audience, many of whom, probably, listened for the first, time to a sweet and natural tremolo, a very different thing indeed to the spurious and acquired article.
