THE WITvTNIPEG EVENING TRIBUNE. SATURDAY, OCTOBER 6, 1934 BOYS' CHOIR COMMENCES ITS 10TH SEASON Led by Miss Ethel Kinley, Organization Has Achieved Fine Record Directed by Mies Ethel Kinley, tlie Winnipeg Boys' Choir Is starting its tenth year of activity. The choir was organized in the fall of 1925 by the Mcn'i MuflcaJ Club and made ita first appearance at a concert In the Walker theatre on December 28th of that year. Prior to the formation of this choir, little attention had been paid to the development of boys' voices in Winnipeg. It Js true that one or two Anglican choirs had. always used a few boys, but at tills time even these choirs were at a low ebb. Many choirmasters actually expressed the opinion that fo - some unexplained reason, climatic or otherwise, boys' voices could not be properly developed In the West Success and Growth The almost Instant success of the Dew choir and Its steady growth from year to year have happily exploded this Idea, and proved that the voice of the Canadian boy Is capable of high musical accomplish, ment. A new impetus was given also to the work of boys In Winnipeg Anglican choirs, and now several very fine churoh choirs are carrying on the English tradition of church music During ail these years the work of the boys' choir has brn under (he musical direction of Miss Ethel Kinley, and the success which ha attended the choir Is due to her Inspiring leadership and her special knowledge and skill In the training of boys' voices. The most satisfactory feature of the work of this choir, apart from eheer beauty of tone, Is the very high standard of part - songs presented. A glance at any one of the many programs sung by this fine choir wil reveal an astonishing selectlou of part - songs by the great masters, not only of English song, but of the whole musical world. Choir Wjns Praise These programs have aroused the greatest interest In musicians abroad, and high commendation from musical authorities has been showered upon the choir. An interesting fact in connection with the work of the choir is that the boys retain their love of choral music evtn after their voices have changed and It Is the ambition of many to join the Ma e Voice Choir, which already includes In Its membership several of the graduates from the Junior choir of the club. The choir varies In number from vner to year, as the voice avail' able permit, from 80 to 60 member. being the usual itrecgth. Miss Kinley is assisted In the ad ministrative work tf the choir by a rqjnrolttce appointed by the Men's Musical Club, consisting tnie season of Fred Read, R O. Standing and W. Mountlocd. The choir Js already at work on Us work for Its annual concert next spring. Wednesday Morning Musicale Open Oct. 10 1 The first meeting; of the Wed nesday Morning Musicale of the winter season will be held in Tne Fort Garry hotel at U a.m., Oct. 10.

FINAL REPORT ON STEFAN STECHUK MEMORIAL FUND The Tribune's "Stefan Stechuk Memorial fund" was opened to pub. lie subscription January 31, 1934, as a practical expression of the strong pubillc sentiment that the memory of the hero of the Henry ave. fire should be suitably honored.

The average was under (1, and the total amount subscribed, J376.05, represents the Individual contributions of several hundred people. Four trustees administered the fund Mayor Webb, Dr. D. Dyma, W. McCurdy, and Mr. Zalozetsky. They purchased the granite monument which was formally dedicated last Sunday In All Saints' cemetery, and the bronze memorial tablet placed In the city hall.

OBSERVATIONS By MAJOR KEY The passing of Edwin Henry Le - mare, the world - famed organist and composer, recills to mind a visit he paid to Winnipeg when he dedicated opened Grace church new organ a beautiful Instrument, by the way. I suppose there were many, like myself, present on the auspicious occasion who must have felt that they heard little that was new I am now referring to the capacities of the organ. Explaining to myself why this wag so, I had only to recall that I had, before the Lemare recital, listened again and again to George Bowles playing the fame organ. Bowies naa one oi those master musical minas, ana while short of the technique of a Lma. - e, he was an experienced student of the combination effects possible In a modern organ. Bowlts was only a Winnlpegger, It Is true, but far bigger and broader musically than many of thoue who knew him personally were able to understand. Bovles was the practical designer of the organ. He was a superb player of the Instrument He was understood and appreciated by Le - ma:e, by Lvnnwood Farnam, by Emll Oberhoffer and other noted men who knew him and were excellent judges of men and music. If ever the diy comes, when the worthy movement promoted by Mr. Norman Douglas and others looking to the erection of fitting memorials In a local hall of fame for musicians who have served Winnipeg and Canada well, reaches a degree of accomplishment, many of us will hope to see George Bowles' name and some rtcord of his work occupy a place of prominence. Lemare was another of those great BrltUhers. He was born at Ventnor, Isle of Wight, In 1865. He held successively many important church organist appointments In or near London. He gave hundreds of recitals, composed a wide range of organ music, also editing a series of works for the lrutrament. He came to America In 1902 to fill the post of organist and muslc - dlrector at Carnegie hall, Pittsburgh. He returned to England for a period. Coming back to America he filled Important civic organ positions on the American Pacific coast, finally locating at Los Angeles, where he died last week. Were it possible to "hackney" several of Lemare most popular writings, long ere this his Andan - tlno and Moonlight and Roses would have ceased to be heard. There was quality and permanence In all he did. One of my fondest recollections of church music heard in our own city was a performance of Lsmare's "Spirit of the Lord," written specially for organ, alio baritone solo and chorus. Notwithstanding: that the minister at the service in mind, grotesquely announced to the congregation that the work "wou d take about seven teen minutes," the organist, soloist and choir heeded not the clerical faux pas, and played and sang with rolemnitv and dignity befitting a great spiritual composition. This Is the Lemare that lives; be has left undying gems of music Apprecia tive of sane modernism, he never departed from understanding. Mav I commend to choir leaders. grepared to epend a few weeks' re - earcel on the work, Lemare's "Spirit of the Lord" both words and music altogether divine. The temptation Is Irresistible to add another word or two regarding Sir George Henschel, who died In England a few days ago. A London newspaper, under the heading, "Wonder Voice Heard Again," published the following on Sept. 2, 1934: For a few brief moments on Sat urday night, a voles which for so many years held London In Its spell wai neard again. It was that of Sir George Hen schel, the famous singer, composer snd conductor, who, on the eve of his 84th birthday, returned to sing to his biggest audience over the wireless. Sir Ctorge's eongs were the real rurprise or the surprise Item In Town Tonight" broadcast by the B.B.fJ. His voice, strong and clear, recalled memories of many a great nightmemories of his 50 years on me puouc piatiorm. Sir George's contribution to the program wss kept secret until the very end of the Item and then the compere announced that on ths eve of his 84th birthday. Sir George woma sing two songs irom Schu bert Der Ledermann and Wan dern. "Almort on the very date of my first appearance in London 57 years ago I have come here tonight, said air weoree. After tdling the story of bis first song, that of a rjoor old oisran grinder, barefooted and growled at bv dogs end with no one listening, srozrn witn coia, air lieorge com mented, "What a contrast. Hers I em comforter; v seated at a beauti ful piano in a warm room, no dogs growling at me and listened to by an audience which might fill more man me Albert Han: If Scotland Is not famed for noted composers of music, assuredly the romantic atmosphere of the heath erbnd has Inspired others to write l. - sohn, Donizetti, Max Bruch, Sullivan, to mention only a name or two comine immediatelv to mind. It was good to read In the cnristian Science Monitor of Sept. 29. an article dated London, written ty W H. Haddon Squire. He begins: "Donald Francis Tovev is Rfid Professor of Music In Edln burgh university. (Note They Crooners, Too!" ; - J i i:, i :J - w teach music In th)s world - famed school of learning). And perhp3 me tact that me mere mention ot the word 'proresfor" Is .enough to make the average mutlcian run a mile, Is one of several reasons why Professor Tovev and his work are so little known outside certain cir cle". Had he lived and worked in Germany, the autochthonous home of professors, no doubt students would have rushed to htm from every part of the world. It Is a little difficult to Imagine an English youth proudly announcing to his friends that be was going to study muslo In Scotland. That country has produced one great portrait painter out, so lar, no composer ol more than respectable eminence. "Edinburgh, however. Is now the home of an English teacher whose brilliant musicianship and encyclo pedic learning would not be too easy to match anywhere in Eurone. The following story is indicative of nia unusual gins, 'ine uxiord Mu - lcai uiud once asked him to Elve a piano recital. Preesed many times for his program he telegraphed at the last minute, 'Put down what vou like.' Thereuoon the undei graduate president Steuart Wil son, now a prominent slngei" devised the stiffest and most recondite Drorram that ha could think of Tovev duly arrived, glanced at the program, walked to the piano and prsyea it tnrougri with no more effort, to use Mr. Wilson's words, 'than It takes us ordinary people to play The King In G'." Mr. squire further remarks: "Of his work as a composer one knows little or nothing, for the reason that in london, at any rate, there la no opportunity of hearing it. Fortun ately, nowever, his critical and analytical writings are more accesrlble. Readers will recall the masterly essav on Gluck. rccantlv Dublished In Tk 1 - J .rla ft. ,.!' ,n.,,J University Press). Here n Immense erudition is carried so buoyantly that one can elmo;t imagine Its being overlooked by a lay reader In his enjoyment of such happy things as the reference to the in ventor of the 'Albertl bass' who, 'If ne am not invent it, at all events made It his own, and like the fanv ous grimy writer of a testimonial to a famous toao. having used it in his first works, used no other for the rest of his life'." Much more is written of this ap parently remarKame Edinburgh man. Maybe one of our numerous study clubs may throw more light on his career. In the midst of msny noises, mostly terrible, the voice of Lawrence Tlbbett came as a sort of balm over the air a few evenings ago. Virility and vibrancy are still among his qualities. He Is doing everything this season that the microphone is capable of conveying to the public. When telepathy Is finally added I doubt not that he will be taking a round or two out of Baer, or maybe turning a few handsprings; just to warm up, as it This Hem from the music pages of the New York Qunday Times, Sept. 23, mentions the nams of a Wlnnlpeg - born singer tn association with some of the well - known artists of the Metropolitan Opera Company: 'The Rochester Symphonv will Include productions of 'Madame Butterfly' and Carmen' In Its programs this season. Quens Mario, Paul Althouse.' Alfredo Gsn - dolft and Joan Peebles will take part In the former; Coe Glade, Mario Charmlee, Joseph Royer, M'ry Craig and John M. Moncrleff In the latter. The Rochester Civic Chorus will supply the ensembles and minor roles." One of the main reasons for the world - wide high reputation of Er - nett Newman as 'a critlo of miulc Is the fact that ' In addition to a profound knowledge of his subject, he Is truthful. Here' are two examples of recent writing In the London Times: ' "Conductors as a rule are not scholars, but merely mors or less - ensitive musical Instruments. They 'feci' an ancient work In a particular way because that Is the way of their own temperament, and they play It accordingly. They do not pause to ask themselves whether that way may not be a complete error, due to the unconscious substitution. In our own epoch, of quite another set of aesthetic concepts for those of a bygone age. "It U the scholar, and the schnlai alone, who can help us to see thit old music as its composer and his contemporaries saw it. He can do this in three ways. In the first place, by an examination of the theoretical speculations and the musical criticinn of the epoch he can di3Cover wb3t the aesthetic of that epoch really was. In what a veiy different way from ours they looked at music, what it was they held It to be the function of music to express, the means bv which they thought this expression could be achieved, and so on. In the iccono place, he can restore for us. to some degree, the perception the mooerri world has lost of language - values and Idiom - values In certain old miulc: be can show us, for example, that, owing to the enormous development of the harmonic vocabulary during the last hundred years, certain harmonle or certain successions of notes, no longer have for us the startling or lacerating quality they hid when they weie br?nd new. In the third piece, by Stilkritische methods "ie can enow that certain typical procedures on the part of an ancient cumnosei were invariably the outcome of certain moods In him." And afrnln, rcfer - ing to one of the Promenade concerts in London: "On Thursday the ve:v oriirlml anl IneenioitT violin corcerto of Ar thur Benjamin, the solo part which was given In excellent style bv Mr. Louis Godowsky, suffered, in the broadcast, from a fault that is all too frequent at these concerts the over - ampliflcatlon of the solo tone at the expense of that of the orchestra. A good half of the quality of this concerto resides in the subtlety of the harmony and the cunning distribution of the har monic strands between the various orchestral timbres. For a great part of the time on Thursday ail we who listened by wireless could hear wag a boldly assertive violin line against a background of harmonic mush. "The performance of Elgar's first symphony left as much to be desired on the imaginative as it did on the technical eide. Some of the playing was of such Incredible untidiness that one could only come to the conclusion that works of this calibre should not be attempted under Promenade conditione: It Is fair neither to the compoeer, the orchestra, nor the sensitive listener." Note how expressive Is Mr. Newman when he really hits which Is often. "Harmonic mush" Is a really picturesque term appreciated by sensitive listeners, perplexed and aggravated to the last degree by much of the untidy playing heard via the radio route even In Canada. ANGNA ENTERS TO BE SEEN IN DANCE RECITAL Angna Enters, the ' celebrated dance mime, chosen by the Women's Musical club as the first of their five guest arttets for the 1934 - 35 sea son, is one of the most unique and gifted personalities on the stage today. Her "Episodes and Compositions in Dance Form," have been the engrossing subject of the world of art in general. Painters, sculptors and poets have extolled her genius, for she belongs in part to each ot their respective fields. To describe her art in a few words Is difficult. Paul Rosenfeld in his book, "By Way of Art," devotes a whole chapter to it. Paris and London critics hailed her as the Inventor of an entirely new and definitely arresting form of the dance. When the Toronto Women's Musi cal club presented this artiste In two special evening performances, her audiences were completely fascinated by her originality and charm. EXPERIMENTAL STATION NOTES The so - called melancholy days of autumn are less so for the thoughtful gardener than for other folks. He can have a variety ot generous bloom even after tne rattling leaves go scurrying down the ditches in front of the wind. Your Morden Experimental Sta tion is now well supplied with bloom in the perennial bordora. Foremost In show are the asters. In favorable seasons they continue colorful until freeze - up in November. Other plants which contribute charm to early October landscape Include llatrls, or blazing - star, heleniums, eedums, phlox, statlce and goldenrods. Among the autumn asters, the New England type is leader. Colors are chiefly blue, purple ' and red pink. Some of the Imported varieties are too late to be reliable In Manitoba but, happily, the Riding Mountain district has all thess colors of New England aster grow ing natively. This year these local plants bloomed in August and owing to dry weather were of short dura tlon. Later sorts of eastern origin are In heavy array now and their colors iblend from almost white through pink, mauve to deep blue and purple. An autumn aster plant quickly Increases in size and the plant should be divided each year to keep It thrifty. This permits exchange of types with the neighbors. One's garden may thus soon be a distinctive scene of pleasing colors well into autumn. It Is well to start with proven varieties. A.O.U.W.
