THE OMAHA SUNDAY BIW: DKCKMBEIt 8, 3912.
Sings in Omaha This Week
J- lIEXItir.TT.V M. HI2KS. i
iiTitnn DE QUlCHAlU)' has an
J yT article In the current Issue of
I Musical America, on folk sonsa
bulldlng- of American folk
sony literature. He kuk Rests
that the place for cultlvatlnK the folk
song l.i In tho public schools, nnd that
the beat musician In the state should be
chosen for supervisor. He censures the
composer of today, "who In his search
for something new, new chords, new pro
fessions, new forms, new colorations,
passes by the fragrant but humble vio
let, and llly-of-the-valley and takes up
the dahlia and polnsettla, Romcous, bul
without perfume. Tho music that lives
Is that which Is most simply constructed
He thinks that some of the composers
who aro turning out Imitations of the
Japanese. Oriental, French and Germah
melodies would do bettor to give us
"Home, Sweet Home," which wins, as
much applause for a star prima donna
as all of her crand opera arias.
Sir. de Gulchard believes that If the
t ' ervlsors select ood melodies for study,
musical quality of which springs
i a natural source and the words of
v :ch are calculated to touch the heart,"
nnd If he Invites songs of a similar na
ture from composers of note, that In this
way a repertoire of good songs with up
lifting words of home and country can
he built up, which would bo passed on
fiom year to year, from parent to child
until these songs of our childhood become
tho folk songs of the nation. He ad
vices composers in this field to give, as
this country Is composed of people of atl
nations, songs that ring of their own
country, but with music and words like
wise eloquent of their ndopted section of
our country, of family life (and their de
votion to-their new Fatherland.
This part of the nslng In tho Omaha
schools, at least la given a certain
amount of attention. The high school
chorus last week sang a group of three,
and way back In tjio grades we used to
learn such gems as "The Harp That Once
Thrqugh Tara's Halls," etc. A great deal
more' could be done lri this line, how
ever, throughout the country. In fact,
a systematic course of folk song music
of all nations could be arranged and fol
lowed out la tho grades, with a brief '
history of each folk song to precede It
that would catch the children's Interest,
nnd this would probably to a great deal
toward developing musical taste. A study
of tho customs and manners of some Xor
, elgn country, with pictures of how they
dress, and of tlie people at work at their
principle occupations, supplemented with
a few tt the foil; songs of that nafl-iii
would serve to bring these people closer
to tho minds and hearts of the children,
than three times tho book learning, and
develop them on the musical side at the
same time. Music at present Is not given
a 'very Important place In our educa
tional system, yet of all the arts It Is
the most Intimate.
During the week, through the courtesy
of Mr. Simms, I have had a glimpse at
the brand new 'edition of Bacltfs Orga"ji
workH that are edited b Charles-Mqrje
Vidor, the eminent French authority.
The suggestions as to phrasing nnd man
ner of playing are all given In reading
material at the front wf tho book, while
tho muslo Itself Is free from markings.
Only a few of Bach's compositions
were published during his llfetttno and
as moet of them were written for his
sons, the composer put little more on
paper than the notes how was ho to
know that for centuries musicians would
disagree as to the way certain trills were
to be trilled, and how phrases were to
be played! he didn't know ho was to be
famuus. Tills new edition gives tho per
former who has the ability to play thesw
wonderful compositions a much freer
Chance to uso his own Interpretation.
Any one who has developed far enough
to play them technically well ought to bu
able to decide how he wants to phrase
New York has jurft been treated to a
performance of Mozart's "Magic Flute"
for the first time In ten years. The
reason It has not been performed oftener
has been for lack of a soprano since
Mme. Sembrlch left opera. After all this
lapse of time Mr. Gattt-Casajza engaged
Miss Frieda Hempel, fresh from nurope,
to sing the part and went to much time
and expense to give the work an elab
orate production. When everything was
In readiness for an early performance at
the opera house, word was received that
Miss Hempel was detained In Europe on
account of Illness. Moiart ltved In the
time when the arias were written for
relcbrated nrlmadonna to dazzle
the audience, and the arlus In this opera
aro said to be of tho utmost difficulty.
Mot to U. thwarted, however, Mr. Gattl,
etc, in tho most up-io-uaie mm neiw
Ible. decided to give It any
way, and ensased a young singer who
had been well spo'.scn of to sing 1110 roie.
Wasn't that enough to make the shades
of old autocrntlo opera singers haunt his
dnimif To rlvR Mozart without a
soniano of renown. This libretto of this
opera is very disconnected, but In splto
of all this the revival was a decided suc
cess. The muslo Is of Itself most beauti
ful, aud .in the scenic effects the Metio
polttan company outdid themselves, and
hv a tow minor changes the play ussumed
a semblanc.0 of connection. It Is probable
that the work will be given another pro
ductlon with a real prima donna in tho
role at a later date.
The Chicaro Opera company opened the
season last week with a production of
"Manou Lescaut," by Puccini, wlilcti was
a novelty In that city. Great enthusiasm
prevailed nnd a vast array of flowers
were sent over the footlights. It Is said
that the principals did some excellent
singing, and an early repetition of the
work will probably be demanded.
News comes from Atlanta, Ga., that
Mortimer Wilson la the conductor of the
Atlanta Philharmonic orchestra. Tho men
of the orchestra 'all speak highly of his
work. The opening concert under htu
direction will take place on December S.
Mr. Wilson will be remembered by local
university students of a few years ago,
as an Instructor In violin at theX'nlvcrslty
of Nebraska School of Mudo.

did she tiptoe, and why did she raise

We are highly pleased-
With the overwhelming response from Christmas Gift Shoppers to our recent statement of facts regarding our immense
stock of hand manufactured Diamond Jewelry. As you know, this magnificent load of Gems came from that staunch and
reliable old New York firm Katz & Leudan, 87 Nassau Street.
Our Christmas business to date shows this" one thing for ecrtnin: The big majority of p'eople really want to buy
refined, distinct and quality-marked .Tewolry in preference to the make-believe, lnnehino-slaiuped lots that erop out bo
plentifully in every alley of trade, especially close to Christmas.
The reason why everybody does not always buy the real kind, js because prices have generally been ridiculously
high. It has been the same old tragic story of the hard-earned, battered and withall cherished
Dollar that would not stretch far enough
To stretch the Dollars, Jiowever, is just exactly what, we have accomplished so successfully by aid of our experience
and niochanical insight combined with financial stability of 28 years' growth.
We stretched our Cash Dollars last fall at the ratio of 1 to 2.10. We bought real hand mado and classy Diamond
Jewelry, platinum mounted or set in 14 or 18 carat Gold, at 45 of the closest Manufacturer's Price.
At ordinary prices only a limited amount of this kind of Jewelry could be sold in Omaha or any other western city.
The " average Christmas Dollar would not, stretch far enough, to reach it, and some inferior article Avould have to suffice.
Thanks to our big catch in the manufacturing market, the Dollars of any Christmas Shopper may be stretched to
cover that class of Jewelry which everybody really wants, but which many buyers are permitted only to look wistfully
upon. During the next two weeks IT'S UP TO YOU!
