XMAS sonos WELCOMED Tlir first conrert of thr twenty-third season of the Muslrnl Art Smiety took . place last evening In t'ariieale Hull , ! The activities of this orasnlsatlon have I , prospered through eventful hsnars In ! 1 the musical life of New York, hanea to! which they themselves have contributed Items of no Inconfldernhlo Importance. ' Knr the conservation of an acquaintance I with the chaste music of the I'alestrtna period and the time immediately bordering- upon It, together with the Introduc I Hon of new choral composition In the 1 more intimate tytfes not demanding per formance by audi large bodies a the j Oratorio Society, have done much toward , counteracting numerous influences o;er atlng fownrd the degradation of finer taste. So lo'ig aa sinus music lovers can listen to the elevated creations of the corn poaer who have penetrated most deeply not destroy appreciation of lofty lieauty. i If. therefore, the concerts of the Musical ' Art Society are not always equal In technical excellence to those which the . organization gave In Its first seasons, they are still vital with the message of uplifted Imagination anil they are in fused with a lovely sincerity of purpose. Krsnrh 4 hrlatma songs W elcome. I It Is not essential to catalogue all Uie doings of last evening. Home old and belovod numbers were heard, such as the i Ineffable "A.loramus te" of I'alestrma jam! the three Krench Christmas songs arranged by Uevaert. Of these three the chanson Joyeuse de Noel" Is familiar i to patrons of the Musical Art concerts ami ulway welcome for the sake of lis nalve melody and Its sonorous refrain I'alestrlna's "Gloria Pa'trl," with the re- 5pon(le fr(,m an uni.e choir, was also received with delight and hail to be re- .Beaten. In the first nart of the nro- grnmme there was a well written and dignified "Salve Reflna" for four voloes by Frani Arena, the conductor of the Peoples Symphony Society concert. Doubtless the majority of the auditor w .-" ,., iii- iiiiuiira 11 This comr.-it.ed two , number Anton Bruckner', antlphon for W voices ,,d organ, entitled T"ota PUkihra es. and Sig-frld Karg-Elerfs the composer must have heard thla fine. -sincere and dliect work with genuine d- light. Karr-Kler's Work Klaborate. Karg-Klert's work Is more elaborate in Its machinery, and perhaps not al tonether so suocessful in the attainment of a noble utterance. Hut It Is none tin less a composition of high endeavor and Is generally admirable In execution The violin obllgato, in particular. Is exquisitely conceived and artistically wrousht out. David Mamies, who played It. was not altogether happy In Its earlier measures, but met the demands of the 1 ;tter portion In such a way as to give the part its full value In the general scheme. The use of the 'hoys' voice shows the experience of a church composer who i" no apprentice at his difficult art. and the solo for boy soprano Is very lovely and tender The name of the boy who eang it was not given, but he must be praised for his purity of style, as well aa for his voice The organ pnrt of the . "imposition is skilfully made and It was played In fastidious taste by Changing (iefebvre. Three part aongs by Schumann, two liusslan song by Cesar Cul and the "N'eu Llehealleder" of Brahms for four voices and pianoforte, four hands, were also on the Hit. Herbert Fryer and James Frlkln played the piano part. WILLY DE SADLER IN RECITAL Hnaatan Hnrrtone Offer Varied Programme In Aeollnn Hall.
