THE LATE DR. HEAP. In some reminiscences of the late Dr. Swinnerton Heap, "Musicus," writing in the Slieffield lndepev- dent, alludes to the fact that Dr. Heap was con- ductor of the Birmingham Festival, and says he tested the elder members of the festival chorus prior to their inclusion in the crack body of the Mid- lands. admitting none if they were not up to the high standard which the doctor fixed. Musical know- ledge counted for nothing if the voice was lacking. I hear (says the writer) that some of the old members were tried with their part in a chorus from the Messiah "—to wit, Their sound is gone out." This would almo3t indicate a sense of humour in the examiner, but it is open to doubt whether the humour would be relished by those who had little sound to emit. The suggestion was certainly more pointed than polite.
