The Worcester Musical Festival.
The forty-fourth annual festival of the
Worcester County Musical association
was hstd in. Worcester, Mass., last week.
Year by year the Worcester music
festivals have advanced both in the
character of the works given and in the
etandard of excellence of performance,
until their influence baa become para
mount in the artistic life of the com.
munity, and is felt throughout the coun
try. While the local patronage this
year waa not equal to that of the past
few years, in real value to the art of
music this festival should be ranked as
the most notable thus far in the long
career of the association. Uniformly
excellent was the work of the soloists,
among whom wore MissSuzanne Adams,
Mrs. Shannah Gumming. Miss Gertrude
May Stein, Mrs. Clara Poole-King,
Messrs. Evan Williams, EIUbou Van
I loose, David Biepham and Carl DufTt,
vocalists, and Richard Burmeister, pian
ist. The orchestra, consisting of sixty
five men from the Boston Symphony
Orchestra, with Franz Kneisel as leader,
went through the arduous week's work
magnificently. The chorus of four hun
dred voices, the real foundation of such
an enterprise, was the best of recent
years. The principal choral works given
were Csuaar Fra nek's oratorio "The
Beatitudes," Verdi's Rquiem Mass.

since 1897. Two symphonies and a

were given, and ariaB and other vocal

about thirty, nearly one-half of which
were new to Worcester audiences. This

hours and a half in its production. The

The librettist, Mr. William C. Langdon,
seems to write with great fluency, but
'there is a lack of poetic feeling and of
the diction and figures of speech charac

is set. 119 seems also to have been sin
gularly unfortunate in avoiding the
beauty of the original story and in em
phasizing its disagreeable features.
Metrically the work is highly satisfac
tory, however. The music through
out shows the h-tnd of a master. In
form, this "lyric drama" is experimental,
combining certain characteristics of ora
torio with others of an operatic nature.
Mr. Louis C. Elson calls "Judith" ua
good guide-post of twentieth century
oratorio." The work certainly proves
to be highly successful when given in
concert form, while as an opera it is, of
course, as yet untried. All credit is due
to the Worcester Festival for calling
forth such a work and for affording the
composer an opportunity for an ade-
