Atlanta, Georgia, January 22, 1922. Editor of The Shephcrdstown Reg ter?Observer's reminiscences of t village choirs in Shepherdstow n s very charming. May it be many lo j years before that last hymn he mc tions is chanted over him . Years ago, when 1 Hrst heard t great Emil Fischer in New York, I w carried back instantly to a wonder) bass voice in the Lutheran choir home. 1 thought then, and still bclic\ that had Mr. Spohn chosen to leave t little village and his fascinating shi at the head ol tow n he too could ha became a famous singer. Yet perha he chose the better part?certainly happier one. Perhaps some day Observer w ill t< us who else besides Miss Lucrel Hickman taught little Shephcrdstov gtru to tinkle tunes on the piano, ai the history of Criswell's Silver Com Band Who first played beautiful class music in our village? Schubert's serenade w?s in one the big music books that my mother ca ricd out of the burning house durii the Civil War, but the other contcr were nearly all songs of the period ai transcripts of all the Italian opcr notably, Hrnani, Lucia di Lamnu moor and l a Fille du Regiment, late made popular again by Caruso. It was a far cry from Miss Lucrel Hickman to Miss Mary Hubbard, \vl was the first, 1 think, to play classic music in Shepherdstown, though Mi Jenny Anspach may have antedat tier. The other day 1 heard Nelson Illing wVirth, the Australian baritone, say tli McDowell's "Sea" is the greatest s song next to Schubert's "Am Meet I ever composed. "Yet," he added, "I ha ( only heard a McDowell song thr : times since coming to America. Y Americans have one of the greatc sting composers in the world. W 1 don't you sing him?" I wonder if life is not too easy for in our country so that we are contc i with what we have by nature wit out striving for more and more pcrfi ' tion in the greatest of all arts? Helen B. I'cndhMon.
