THE JUNGFRAU KAPELLE

Of the masio rendered by the company under the above title, which opens on Monday next, at the Oddfellows' Hall, an exchange writes: — "The Tyrolean muslo ia distinguiaed by certain peollarlties. It ia generally written ia the major mode. The Interval of the seventh Is of frequent employment, and nearly all the songs are j In triple time. . In the Tyrol they" carol ! with a peoultar Intonation of ttie voice within the throat, and this, whiob is known aa 'jodelllog,' will be reproduced here. There has been much written abont Swiss melodies, and the oastom of singing the air m a clear and high falsetto, is described aa singularly wild and thrilling m the effects produced. The Oompauy play no Ibbs than forty different instruments, and amongst them are the 'cello zither, bow-zither and zither. Of the a ther Anthony Troll ope says: 'I combines all the softest notes of tbt human voloe ; it sings to yon of love, and then wails to you of disappointed love till it fills you with a melancholy from whloh there is no escaping, from which you never wish to escape. Ir speaks to you as no instrument ever Bpeaks, and reveals to you, with wonderful eloquence, the sadness m whioh it delights ' The bow-zither is otpable of lovely combinations, and people will be curious to hear It played by genuiue Tyroleae, aooompanied by exhibitions of Tyrolean jodell Ing."
