Why "The Messiah'' Hlioul Sung at (.'hrlstinaH Time. " 'Tlie Messiah' should always bo sung nt Christinas time," is u musical maxim. It is tho greatest of all oratorios—it is tlio sacred music of sacred music. In England it is everywhere sung «luring the Christmas season, and every year hundreds of thousands, rising,stand and liston to the pealing grandeur of the "Hallelujah chorus," and hundreds of thousands of hearts thrill in unison at its jubilant strains, singers and audience alike. It is a beautiful custom, and it seems to be a when tlie Tuesday Club make to give it after some such fashion. It is a pity Unit it lias to be done i hasty manner—it is to he rendered Tuesday next, but still a hastily arranged performance is better than performance at all. The club's due tor says, however, that the chorus is quite fitted for tho work. Tho solo work will be largely by tho club's own members, sible that Mr. Gilchrist will himself sing of the hi E. Auty will perhaps assist with the tenors. A rehearsal for the performance will be held at tlio club's rooms, at Eden Hall, upon Monday next, and it is to be hoped that a large attendance will beon hand. The board of trustees of the West Presbyterian Church very generously permit the church to be used for tho occasion free of any charge. Tickets of admission will ho issued but shall cost the holder nothing for tho perf«»rmanco is to be a Christmas offering from the club to its friends.
