THE VOICE AND SINGING
(THE FORMATION AND CULTIVATION QF THE VOICE FOR SINGING), By ADOLFO FERRARI.
M The chief value of this excellent treatise on the art and practice of singing is in the elaborate chapter upon the formation and cultivation of the voice, which precedes the practical exercises. Signor Ferrari alleges that ** every one who can speak may ling," and he discusses this fact not only with great intelligence but with excellent common sense. Asa teacher of long and varied experience he speaks with authority, and the rules he lays down for the development of the vocal organs may be consulted with advantage by all students of the art of singing. His book, in short, labours to overcome the two leading difficulties which beset the scholar, vis., the production of the natural or real tone of the voice, and the proper management of the breath."—

~ Mr. Glover's operetta i> a decided, and, what is better, a legitimate, 'hit.' The — before us have already attained a well.merited popularity. * The monks were
joIlyboysMs at racy as the best of the old English ditties, harmonised with equal quaintness and skill, and thoroughly well suited to the voice of Herr Formes. 'The love you've slighted still is true' (for Mile, Jenny Baur) has a melody of charming freshness. Not less a model ballad in its way is 'A young and artiest maiden ' (for Herr Reichardt), 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 'Love is a gentle thing' (for Miss Emma Heywood), which enters the more refined ragtoas 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."—Musical World.

Maplcson is deeply impressed with the responsibilities of his undertaking.
