Th. high, sweet tenor of John McGuire was a highlight of the exotic beau ty of "The Red Sarafan," Russian folk song. Another dramatic pre sentation was offered in the Cha brier dance measures with duo- pianists, Ronald Jaeb and Davic Koshoshek, complementing the voices in an outstanding performance. Sacred music which spanned many periods opened with the purity of the Gregorian chants Palestrina and Mozart compositions and the spiritual "Were You There" made a group of three, all with the theme of the Crucifixion. A Schubert song, the moving "Re gina Coeli" by Fr. Kelly sung for the first time on the chorus' pres- en tour, and Handel music concluded the group. Four Auvergne folksongs were dedicated to Sr. Camille, president of the College of Saint Teresa. The fine voices of the soloists for the four, ranging from lullaby to humorous, were John Phelps, first bass; Phillip Cowles, second bass; Richard Berg, second tenor, and Mr. McGuire. Modern offerings included the "The Gandy Dancers' Ball" and "Dancing in the Dark," contrasts in moods.
