Sacred Concert at Tinwald.
The Sacred Cantata "Under the .Palms " was repeated last evening by the Wesleyan Church Choir in the Templar Hall, Tinwald, the Hall being well filled by an orderly audience. The Choir numbered some 35 voices, Mr Gamble acting as conductor, and Miss Murray accompanying on the piano. The principal numbers were taken by Miss Steele (soprano), Miss Gray (contralto), Mr Flower (tenor), and Mr Miller (bass). Those which seemed to be most highly appreciated were the following : —The tenor solo " Night's sable Mantle," introduced from the Cantata " Joseph," given excellently by Mr Flower, and another item for the same Cantata, the duett •'Wander ye Flocks," by Miss Steele (soprano) and Mr Flower (tenor) was very successful. The quartette "The Church of Christ" by Misses Steele and Gray, Messrs Flower and Miller, was also a very good number. A bass song introduced by Mr Miller "The last muster," was well sung. All the soprano parts were taken by Miss Steele, and the singing of that lady and Miss Gray (contralto), and of Messrs* Flower and Miller was very good throughout. The Rev. Mr Gray gave an introductory prologue explanatory of the plot of the Cantata, and which added greatly to the interest of the performance. This was throughout a very successful one, the conductor and choir deserving congratulation.
