DEwrrr talmaqb. , ' '9 '" - From the lodepehdent. . . There has been an effertmade for the last twenty years to kill congre gational singing. The attempt has been - tolerably - successful; - but it wma to me that some rules might ''.J- given by which the work might be done quickly and effectually. What is the use of having it linger ing on in this uncertain way? Why not put it out of its misery? - - If you are going to ' kill a snake, kill it thoroughly, t and do not let it keep wagging its tail till sundown. Con gregational singing is a nuisance, anyhow, to many of the people. It interfere with their comfort. It of fends their taste. ' It disposes their nose to flexibility in the upward di rection. It is too democratic in its tendency. " - v Down with congrega tional singing and let us have no more of it! t? i , V " :.' The first rule for killing is to have only such tunes as the people cannot sing. idil :.- i - - In some churches' it is the ens torn of choirs at each service to sing one tune which the people know. It is very generous of the choir to do that - The people ought to be thankful for the donation. They do not deserve it They are all "misera ble offenders LI heard them say sol; and, if permitted once in a ser vice to sing, ought to think them selves highly favored. 1 J5ut 1 op pose this singing oi even the one tune that the people understand It spoils them. It gets them hanker ing after more. : Total abstinence is the only safety, for if you allow them to imbibe at alL and the first thing you know they will be going around drunk on sacred psalmody. Besides that," if you let them sing one tune at a service, they " will be ' putting their oar into the other tunes and bothering the choir. There is nothing more annoying to the choir than, at some moment when they have drawn out a note in exquisite fineness, thin as a split hair, to have some blundering elder j to come in with a "Praise ye the 1 Lord!" Total abstinence I say! Let all the churches . take the pledge, even against the milder musical beverages; for they . who tamper with ' campaign cider - soon get to Dock and old Burgundy. - Now if all the tunes are new there will be no new temptation by the people. They will not keep imming along,' hoping that they will ' find some bars down where they can break into the clover pas tures. - They .will take the tune as an inextricable conundrum, and give it up. Besides that, Pisgah, Orton- vilie and ' .Brattle btreet are : old fashioned. They did very well in their day. Our fathers were sim ple minded people, and . the tunes fitted them But our i fathers are gone, and they ought to have taken their baggage with them. It is a nuisance to have those old - tunes floating ' around the - church, and some time, just as we have got the music as fine as an opera,' to have some new-born soul break out in "Rock of Ages Cleft for me!" till the organist stamps the pedal with in- diirnation, and : the leader of the tune gets red in the face and swears. Certainly anything that mates a man swear is wrong ergo, congre gational singing's wrong. Quod erat demonstrandum; which being trans lated, means plain as the nose on a man s face. What right have peo pie to ' sing who know ' nothing about rhythmics, melodies, dynam ics? The old tunes , ought to be ashamed of themselves when com pared with our modern beauties. Let Dundee and Portuguese Hymn and Silver sJtreet hide their heads beside what we heard hot long ago in a church just where I shall not tell iv The minister read the hymn beautifully. , The organ began, and the choir sang as near as I could understand as follows: Os aw gee bah, tt,..f Ah me la le ' O pah Bah- dah ; . , : 1 We haw ge-e-e-e. My wife, seated beside me, did not like the music. . But I said: "What beatitiful : sentiment! ' My dear, it is a : PRstoral. ; -1 Tou I might have known' that from Wa-ha gee! You have had your taste ruined by attending the Brooklyn Tabernacle. The choir repeated the last line of the. hymn ' four tamest - Then' the prima donna' leaped on the first 8 line, and supped and fell on the second, and that broke out and let her through r on the third. - The other voices came ; in to -pick 5 her up, lmd got into a grand ' wrangle, and the bass and the soprano had it for about ten" 1 seconds ; , but the soprana'-beat women always do) and the bass rolled down into - the cellar, and the -soprano went up in to the garret, but the latter - kept on squalling as though the bass in leavmg her,' wickedly t6re out all her black nair. & :" " " -- Now I admit that we ' cannot all have; such things in our - churches. It costs like sixty; In the church of the Holy Baukak it costs $100 to have sung that communion piece '. "Ye wretched hungry, starving poor! But let us come as near to it as we can. The ; tune - "Pisgah" has been standing :long enough " on "Jordon's stormy banks.'VLet ' it pass over and get out of the ' wet weather. Goodby, "Antioch," "Har well," and "Boylston," Bood-by till we meet m Glory, c-? it .vr i But if the - prescriptions of new tunes does not end congregational singing, I have another suggestion. Get an irreligious choir,1 and put them in a high balcony back of tile congregation. I know choirs who are made up chiefly of ' religious people ; or those, at least, ' respect nil for sacred things. That will never do, if you want to kill the music. - ' ' ' - - - - The theatrical troupe are not busy elsewhere on the Sabbath, and you can get them at half price to sing the praises of the ixjid. Meet them in the green room at the close of the "Black Crook" and secure them.8 : They will come to church with opera glasses, which will bring the minister so near to them that they can, from their' high " perch, look clear down his throat and see . i m "a . i ms sermon Deiore n is aenverea. They will make excellent poetry on Deacon Goodsoul as he . carries around the missionary box. They will write dear little notes to Gon zoldo, asking him how his cold is and how he likes gum drops. With out interfering with the worship below, they can discuss the com parative, fashionableness ' of the "Basque" and the "Polonaise," and tha one" lady vowing she thinks the first style is "horrid" and the other saying she would rather die than be seen in .the latter all this whilst the chorister is gone during the sermon to refresh himself with mint julip, hastening back in time to sing tile last hymn. ; How much like Heaven it will be when, at the close , of a solemn servicej we are favored with matches from Verel's "TrovatorMeybeer's "Huguenots," and Bellini's "Somnambula" from such artists as - Prima Donna Soprano, ' Mademoiselle Squintelle, -' From Grand Opera House, Paris, ! oignor xwmoasiani , I Basso BuflEb ' - . n Frorn the Royal Italian Opera, , First Baritone, s- , .Of His Majesty's Theatre, Berlin. ' . If after three months of taking these two prescriptions the congre gational singing is not thoroughly dead, send me a letter -directed to my name, with the title of O. F. M. (Old Fogy in Music), and I will on receipt thereof, write another pre scription, which 1 am sure will kill it as dead as a door-nail, and that is the deadest thing in history.", , Incubator. ; !
