ORGAN RECITAL.

St. Paul’s Methodist Church was well filled on Tuesday evening last, when 'Mr R. Trist Seared, assisted by friends, gave an enjoyable organ recital, in aid of the funds of the St. Paul’s Tennis Club. Mr Seared proved himself a past master, and handled his various numbers in a masterly fashion, and brought forth the qualities of St. Paul’s powerful organ. The applause was hearty and wed merited, particularly in she case of the “ Intermezzo” (Mascagni), when he scored a decided success, and had to submit to a very pronounced encore.

The others taking part in the programme were Miss Nixon, whose fine voice was heard to advantage in two songs, particularly “The Little Green Bonnets.” Mr Gillies sang ‘‘Queen' of Angels,” in taking style. Mr J. W. Glennie gave a cornet solo, and was warmly applauded. The Aria, “Rolling in the foaming Billows,” given by Mr J. E. Taylor, was exceptionally good and was well handled. There was also given a recitation by Miss Ruth Prior, entitled “The Children's Hospital,”- and although given rather lower than it should have been, she proved an elocutionist of considerable ability, and more should be heard of- this young lady as time goes on. The. following is a list of the organ solos provided by Mr R. Trist Seared : —Concerto No. 4 in F. (Handel) ; (a) allegro moderate, (b)andante maestoso,. .(c) adagio, (d) aflcgro ; (a) Chanson Triste (Whitchearl), (b) Intermezzo (Mascagni) ; Fantasia on Welsh March (Best) ; (a) Air from Symphony in D. (Hadyn), (b) Spring Song ( Mendelssohn )' ; Flute Concerto (Rink), (a) allegro maestoso, (b) adagio, (c) allegretto. A most enjoyable recital was brought to a close with the singing of “God Save the King’.” It is satisfactory to note that the club funds will benefit very much, while the audience was well satisfied that they got splendid value for their money.
