In Its terrible complexities of technique,

tho quality of dollcacy, often considered
Incompatible, wero both demanded by tho
work; Mr. Macfarlano gave It both In

Scottish airs, ns ono would expect. Yet
It Is not morely a medley bocauso tho
composor has mado Ids transitions

Young People's Concert
The fourth of tho oxcellent series of

It should bo noted thnt this la part of

evident choral nnd orchestral forces tho
performance was satisfactory In every es
