THE VOICE AND SINGING
(THE FORMATION AND CULTIVATION OF THE VOICE FOR SINGING), By ADOLFO FERRARI.
WHEN this Book first appeared we foretold its success; our conviction being founded on the author's freedom from conventional trammel*, the strong good sense of his opinions, the novelty and yet evident soundness of his precepts, and the conciseness and practical value or his examples and exercises, of which every note is dictated by a clear and definite purpose. The influence of Signor Ferrari's method of forming and cultivating the voice, as it is explained in this treatise, it enhanced by the efficacy of his personal lessons in his practice as one of the most era in en t teachers of the day; and this work has consequently come into general use as a manual of vocal instruction, not only in the metropolis but throughout the kingdom. In this new edition the author has made various important additions to the work, especial Ij to the Exercises. Formerly they were confined to soprano or tenor voices; exercises for one voice being also available for the other. But, for the contralto, or the barytone, provision was not made. This desideratum is now supplied, partly by means of entirely new exercises, partly by giving the old exercises likewise in transposed keys, and partly by adapting the soprano exercises also to the contralto or bar*tone, by the Insertion of alternative paisages in email notes. By these means the utility of the work is very greatly increased. We have said that the remarkable qualities of this book are the author's freedom from conventional trammels, the strong sense of his opinions, and the novelty yet evident soundness of his precepts ; and this we will show , a few passages which cannot fail to strike every reader,-

Sung by Herr Formes
"Mr. Glover's operetta is a decided, and, what is better, a legitimate, • hit." The long, before us have already attained a well-merited popularity. 'The monks were jolly boys' is as racy as the best of the old Kngll.h ditties, harmonised with equal qu.iintness and skill, and thoroughly well suited to the voice or Herr Formes. 'The love you've slighted still is true' (for Mile. Jenny Baur) has a melody or charming freshness. Not less a model ballad In Its way is 'A young and artless maiden ' (for Herr Keichardt), which sets out with an elegantly melodious phrase. Perhaps more to our liking, however, than any of the foregoing, excellent and genuine as they are, Is 'Lore Is a gentle thing' (for Miss Emma Heywood), which enters the more refined regions of the ballad-school, and attains an expression as true as it is graceful. The opening holds out a promise which the sequel entirely fulfils. We shall look with real interest for the remaining pieces of " Once too Often."— Musical World.
I NAVIGANTI (The Mariners).
BY ALBERTO RANDBGGBR.
This popular Trio (for soprano, tenor and bass) sung by Miss Anna Whiity, Mr. Tennant and Herr Formes, on their tour through the provinces, and by Madame Rudersdorff, Mr. Dunn, and Mr. Weiss at the Cork Festival, is published, price 4». by Duncan Davison & Co.
"In the composition of this unaffected and graceful trio (which is inscribed to those excellent professors of the vocal art, Sig. and Mad. Ferrari), Mr. Randegger has shown not only the melodic gift, and the knowledge of how to write effectively for voices, but a thorough proficiency in the art of combination, and, as it were, a dramatic spirit, which might win favour for an opera from his pen. Each voice (tenor, basso and soprano), in the order in which they enter, has an enVctivc solo, followed by an ensemble (or'tuttl') for the three voices in the major key (the trio begins in C minor), the whole terminating with a rorfn, ' sotto voce,' the effect of which, if smoothly rendered by three good singers, must be as charming as it is new. The more of such 'teriettinos' the better."— Musical World.

AUTHOR OF "JANET'S CHOICE," &c.
The dew lay glitt'ring o'er the grass,
A mist lay over the brook j
The swallow her nest forsook.
Lay thickly the ground adorning,
At five o'clock in the morning.
And Bessie the milk-maid merrily sang,—
For the meadows were fresh and fair, The breeze of the morning kiss'd her brow,
And played with her nut-brown hair. But oft she turn'd, and look'd around,
As if the silence scorning: 'Twas time for the mower to whet his scythe
At five o'clock in the morning.
And over the meadows the mowers came,
And merry their voices rang,
To where the milk-maid sang.
Despite her comrade's warning,— The old, old story was told again
At five o'clock in the morning.
