MR BRUNTON’S CHOIR.
There was a tremendous crush at the Garrison Hall last evening, when the members of Mr A. Bruuton’s Dunedin and Port Chalmers singing classes held their seventh annual rehearsal of sacred song. Before the time fixed for the commencement of the concert, for such tho affair really was; the, hall wan packed in every part, ana hundreds of people had to be turned away from want of room. Tho first portion of the programme was made up of selections from tho service of song, ‘On the North Sea,’ and the chorus, who uumbered about eighty, wont through their work in admirable style, while some of the solos were also well rendered. Mr D. R. Eunson delivered the connective readings. The second part of the programme comprised miscellaneous pieces, the majority df which appeared to bo highly appreciated. During the evening Mr Brunton referred in feeling terms to tho death of the Rev. Dr Somerville, who visited this City a few years ago.
