Concert.
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.

-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.
