WONDERS OF LATEST EDISON MACHINE
"Musical artists sang and played duets with themselves at a
private demonstration of the reproducing qualities of the latest
Edison sound-reproducing instrument held yesterday afternoon
at Horticultural Hall. ... At times the artists
stopped, and it was difficult, and in most instances impossible,
to tell when the singer was not still singing. Except for the
volume of sound, the reproduction was as perfect as the original
intrepretation. Miss Christine Miller, contralto, pleased with a
number of selections sung as duets with herself. .

CHALMERS' REMARKABLE RECITAL
"What was probably the most unique recital ever heard in
this city was presented at Foresters Hall Friday evening be
fore a capacity house, when Thomas Chalmers, baritone of the
Boston Opera Company, sang two duets with himself. This
was accomplished with the aid of an Edison Diamond Disc
Phonograph, the object being to demonstrate with what abso
lute fidelity Mr. Edison has succeeded in re-creating music
. . A pause here and there in the selection, permitting
the phonograph to continue alone, served to demonstrate the
trueness of the tone to the audienc more forcei... tLan words

MUSICIANS AND CRITICS MARVEL AT EDISON
"Before an audience of well-known musicians and critics at
Horticultural Hall, an unusual recital was given yesterday to
demonstrate the surpassing qualities of the Edisor. Diamond
Disc Phonograph. Artists from the Edison Studio were
present and sang their own songs as they were plcyed from
the records. The experiments, which included the sudden halt
ing of the phonograph or the singer so that the audience could
not tell whether one or the other was producing the song, evoked
considerable comment. ... " Philadelphia Inquirer,
September 18, 1915.
"The large audience of music-lovers who heard Christine
Miller, the celebrated contralto, sing last night at the Victoria
Theatre, in a tone-test recital, could not find adequate words
to express their astonishment at the wonderful revelation of
hearing the human voice match perfectly the re-created voice as
developed through Edison's new achievement, the Diamond
"Not a person in the audience '.ras able to say whether Miss
Miller was singing or the new Diamond Disc was playing, and
all were convinced that the instrument is all thct Mr. Edison
claims for its absolute and true re-creation of the human voice."
St. Louis Globe-Democrat, January 19, 1916.
"That Thomas A. Edison, the inventive wizard, has at last
mastered the art of recreating the human voice was beautifully
demonstrated last night at a recital at the Shubert Theatre when
Christine Miller, the noted concert contralto, made her astound
ing test of singing in direct comparison with Edison's re-creation
of her voice.
"Edison's Master-mind stands out supreme in this, his latest
and favorite invention. Music's Re-Creation is Edison's new
Many in tlte audience leaned forward to catch
some difference in the voices. But there was none to catch.
Miss Miller's own beautiful voice, in all its flowing, pulsing
variations, was being matched tone for tone by the instrument.
Edison had scored another triumph, it was the idealization of
this great man's genius.
"Not a tone, not a subtle color of her voice, varied in the
slightest form from its Re-creation. It was a perfect blend of
tone and beauty. file finest, most delicate variations of her
voice were matched. It was as if two Christine Millers stood
before the audience.
"That Edison has triumphed in this his rwest invention
cannot be gainsaid. He has met and matched the fairc-t
music on earth. He has in truth brought -th Music.
Creation." iVen Haven Evening Register, February 1, 1916.
"The phonograph with a soul." A'ew York Globe, April
"Demonstrated the trueness of the tone more forcefully than
words ever could." Toronto Ntsn, October 22, 1915.
