and not always in tune. The exceptions were, however, rare, and the general performance must be pronounced excellent. The attendance was immense.
The London Glee And Madrigal Union.—The 109th and last of the series of these popular entertainments was given last week, in the Royal Gallery of Illustration, before a crowded and enthusiastic audience. The programme included many of the favourite and most successful pieces introduced this season. The encores were numerous. Mr. T. Oliphant (Literary Illustrator), delivered an appropriate farewell address which was received with acclamations. The following were among the observations made by that talented gentleman :—" Unaided by fashion, unheralded by any flourish of trumpets, with the very elements against us for no inconsiderable portion of the time, we have, through your kind and continued support, been enabled to carry out a series of entertainments for a duration almost unprecedented as regards music of the purely English school. We have wished to gain your attention by an appeal to your hearts, trusting to a natural and truthful expression of healthful poetry, combined with corresponding music, and that appeal, we are proud to find, has not been in vain. The programmes have contained upwards of 120 different compositions, and, with respect to their execution, although I may be supposed to be not an unbiassed critic, I can conscientiously say, that, after an experience of forty years in such matters, I have rarely, if ever, heard glees sung in greater perfection. With regard to my portion of the entertainment I will merely add that if in your estimation it has contributed in any wav to its success, I am glad to have had it in my power to be of service to my friend Mr. Land, the director, and his talented associates, Miss Eylcs, Miss Wells, Mr. Baxter, Mr. Cummings, and Mr. Lawlcr."—We anticipate with pleasure the revival of these performances in due course.
Mr. Henry Leslie's Choir.—The sixth and last Concert was given on Tuesday evening, when to the general company was added a number of the loading members of the Orpheonistes, who were invited to the performance by Mr. Henry Leslie. The programme comprised twenty-one pieces, of which no less than six were encored. These were—Mendelssohn's part-son^, " Departure;" Goss's glee, "There is beauty on the mountain ;' Pearsall's part-song, "O, who will o'er the downs so free;" Mendelssohn's "Forty-third Psalm;" Edwardcs's madrigal, " In going to my lowly bed;" and Stevens's part-song, "The cloud-capt towers. The Orpheonistes, when they entered the hall, were received with tremendous cheers. At the end of the concert, the Choir sang for the Orpheonistes "Rule Britannia," and again repeated Mendelssohn's Psalm. The Frenchmen then drank Mr. Leslie's health, when Mr. Leslie ieturned thanks; and subsequently that of the ladies of the Choir was given, to which Miss Emily Gresham responded in a neat speech in French.
The English Glee And Madrigal Union.—Third Concert. On Wednesday last a new list from the repertoire of this accomplished "glee party" (whose talents individually are of too high an order for solo music to be neglected by them) was given at Messrs. Collards' Concert Room in Grosvenor Street, which is fast becoming a popular venue. The selection comprised wellknown and always welcome glees and madrigals by Fearsall, Webbe, Ilorsley, Callcott, &c. The address to the capital of Ancient Mexico in Southey's Mailoc, arranged by Callcott, is an elegant piece of concerted vocal music, and was sung to admiration. Two part-songs by Mr. J. L. Hatton, written for this Union, were also given; one of them, " The Sailor the deck is pacing," being vociferously encored. Mrs. Locke is still indisposed, and the lady sex is represented by Miss Banks alone; how capably and worthily the musical world is well aware.
Miss Susanna Cole's Concert took place on Thursday evening, at St. James's Hall, and was a very spirited affair, Mr. Sims Reeves, Mr. Santley, Miss Palmer, and the London Glee and Madrigal Union being among the vocalists, and Mr. Charles Halle and Herr Becker among the instrumentalists. Miss Cole was more than usually ambitious in selecting the grand scena from Der Freischiitz, "Before my eyes beheld him," for one of her essays. The result, however, justified the attempt, for the young lady sang with so much power and brilliancy as to create
an uproar of applause, which was only appeased by a repetition of the final movement. Miss Cole's other solo was Professor Bennett's "May-dew," a most exquisite song, and so perfectly sung, and so perfectly accompaniedon the pianoforte by Mr. Charles Halle, as to elicit a rapturous encore. The lady also took part in the following pieces:—Curschmann's trio "Pi prego," with Miss Palmer and Mr. Sims Reeves; Niedermeyer's quintet, "Pour les attraits," with Miss Augusta Thomson, Mile. Behrens, Mr. Tennant, and Mr. Sautley; the duet " Quis est homo," from Rossiui'B Stabat Afater, with Miss Palmer; and the prayer from Mose in E%itto with all the principals. Mr. Sims Reeves sang Mr. Balfe's new song "I love you," and was tumultuously encored; as he was also in Mr. Hatton's song " Sweet love, good night to thee." Mr. Charles Halle and Herr Becker performed the Duo Concertante of Osborne and Dc Beriot, on Guillaume Tell, for pianoforte and violin, with brilliant success; Herr Becker, in addition, a fantasia by Paganini with immense effect; and Mr. Halle played three solos — "Nocturne," by Chopin; Stephen I Heller's" Wanderstudcn ;" and one oPMendelssohn's "Liedcrohne Worte," to the iuteuse enjoyment of the audience.
The Societt For The Encouragement or The Fine Arts gave its fifth Conversazione on the evening of the 21st inst., at the Architectural Gallery, Conduit Street. In addition to the large and splendid collection of drawings and plans forming the Architectural exhibition, several new and eminent works of art were contributed for the occasion. There was also, as usual, a concert of vocal and instrumental music, sustained by Mad. Gilbert, Miss Fosbroke, Mrs. Paget, Mrs. F. Rcilly, Mile. Elvira Behrens, Mr. F. Reilly, Mr. Cunningham, Mr. Leonard, and M. Verzy, as singers; and Mr. Alfred Gilbert (piano) and Mr. W. H. Eayrcs (violin), instrumentalists. The capital performances were Mrs. Facet's "Rocked in the cradle of the deep ; " Mad. Gilbert's "Dch, vieni non tardar;" Mr. Leonard's "Largo al factotum" and Wallace's "Bell-ringer"— each specially applauded; Mendelssohn's two-part song by Mad. Gilbert and Mile. Behrens; and Mr. Hatton's song, "Sweet love, good night to thee," by Mr. Cunningham. Osborne and Dc Beriot's duet for piano and violin, on airs from Guillaume Tell, was admirably played by Mr. Alfred Gilbert and Mr. Eayrcs.
Miss Messent's Annual Concert, on Tuesday evening, at the Hanover Rooms, was a fair specimen of a mid-season benefit entertainment. The lady did not overlook the classical part of her audience, but presented them with Mendelssohn's trio in D minor, for piano, violin, and violoncello, executed by Mr. Charles Halle, Herr Deichinann, aud Herr LideL, a veritable bon-bonche, more particularly as it was so finely performed. Mr. Charles Halle added Chopin's "Nocturne" and " Grand Valse," which he played superlatively. Miss Messent contributed three solos, Mercadante's "Ah! rammento a lui d'aceanto," new ballad, "Ask not why,", composed expressly for her by Herr Francesco Berger, and the Scotch song, "'Twas within a mile of Edinburgh town." Miss Messent sings simple ballads so prettily, that it seems a pity she should not turn her attention more to them and les3 to Italian brauuras, which, although she masters with sufficient ease, do not exhibit her talents to so much advantage. Her reading and singing of the Scotch song were most charming. Vocal pieces were supplied by Mad. Catherine Hayes, Mile. Von Kettler, Messrs. Wilbye Cooper, Santley, and Jules Lefort. Messrs. Francesco Berger, George Lake, and W. G. Cusins( were
Mrs. Alexander Newton's Matinee (Collards' Rooms, 28th inst.) provided a host of singers, and some excellent entertainment. The lady herself sang Spohr's "Bird and Maiden," the cavatina, "Qui la voce," from I Puritani, and, with Miss J. Palmer, Mendelssohn's duet, "O wert thou in the cauld blast." Mrs. Newton's brilliant voice and dramatic style were well displayed in Bellini's cavatina, which wos received with loud marks of approbation.
by Mr. Sims Reeves's singing — given with great effect by Mad. Laura Baxter. The Brousil family executed some pieces, of which Spohr's Concerto Dramatique, No. 8, Mile. Bertha BrousU, first
violin, though curiously altered from the original, was most admired.
Hebe Gtjstave Holzel, the well-known basso of the Imperial Opera at Vienna, gave his private concert on Tuesday afternoon, at 88 St. James's Street. Some pleasing pieces of his own composition were sung with admirable expression. His comic lied, "Der lustage Postilion" was unanimously encored, as also was Mad. Rudersdorff's ballad of " Mein Liebster ist im Dorf der Schmidt." Mad. Tiefensee, and Messrs. Mayr, Kuhc, Eibenschutz, Oscar de la Cinna, and Steger (of the Imperial Opera, Vienna), were among the performers. The latter sang some characteristic Hungarian melodies with national feeling. Messrs. Kuhe and De la Cinna rivalled one another in their execution on the piano. The concert was highly successful.
Mad. Louisa KAr-p Young, "Hof-Sangerinn" to the Court of Austria, gave her first concert in England, under distinguished patronage, on Monday last at Cambridge House, by permission of Viscountess Palmerston. Mad. Kapp Young possesses a rich and powerful voice, and much musical feeling. She was highly successful on the present occasion in Mozart's "Parto," from "La Clemenza di Tito" Mendelssohn's "Auf Flugeln des Oemtigs," and Molique's "Gondolier's Song." The fair vocalist was ably assisted by Herr Molique and his accomplished daughter Mile. Anna Molique, Signor Piatti, and Mr. Santley.
Dublin.—(From a Correspondent.)—The twenty-third annual summer concert of the University Choral Society took place with considerable eclat on the 14th inst. Part I. Purcell's "Tempest Music ;" romance (Adrienne Lecouvreur), Vera; duetto (Marta), TTlotow; "The Boat Scene " from Lurline; " quartett, " Soldier's Farewell," Kucken; "The Tiger crouches," chorus, Bishop. — Part II. Polka chorus, Dr. Denning ; song, " Land of my dearest," Keller; "The Wreath," part-song, Benedict; Beethoven's " Adelaida;" glee and chorus, "Come, fairest Nymph," Lord Mornington; valse (for the band), "II Bacio," Arditi; quartett, "O Nanny, wilt thou ;" trio and chorus, "Give me the Harp," Stevenson. The above, as a light and popular sort of concert, was considerably admired. It contrasted favourably with the former concerts given by the Society, which were during this season devoted to the great classical works of Mendelssohn, Spohr,'Beethoven, &c. The University Amateurs are guided bv the maxim "Non semper tendit arcum Apollo." Their society is in a very flourishing condition.

NEW SONGS by J, W. DAVISON, "Rough wind that moanest loud" (sung by Mr. Santley at the Monday Popular Concerts); "Swifter far than Summer's Bight," (sung hy Miss Palmer at the Monday Popular Concerts): "False friend, wilt thou smile or weep," Beatrice's song in the Cenci (sung by Madame Sainton-Dolby, at the Monday Popular Concerts, St. James's Hall); are published by Cramer, Beale, and Co., 201 Regent Street. The above Songs form Nos. 1, 2, and 3 of Vocal Illustrations of Shelley. 14 Mr. Santley was encored in one of the thoroughly picturesque and poetical settings of Shelley, by Mr. J. W. Davison, mentioned a week or two since. His song, * Rough wind that moanest loud,' is a thoroughly good *ong,"—Athenteum.
•' Madame Sain ton-Dolby's greatest efforts were called forth by Mendelssohn's • Night' soog, and Mr. J. W. Davison's ' False friend, wilt thou smile or w**ep' (from Shelley's 'Cenci'), to both of which shedid the amplest justice. The latter work, is one of the most poetical and beautiful of the * Vocal Illustrations of Shelley,' composed by Mr. Davison many years ago, and which, though rarely heard, possess far more sterling merit than nine-tenths of the most admired songs of the day. A more Intel* lectual treatment of the words could not well be imagined. Mr. Davison has completely caught the spirit of the poetry, and heightened its beauty by the potent chirms which belong only to the sister'art. 'False friend, wilt thou .mi le or weep,' sung to perfection by Madame Sainton-Dolby, was enthusiastically applauded."
