Saskatoon cam- pus, presented a two-how reci- al Friday night at the Yatec femorial Centre, and managed uite creditably with a pro- rani which leaned heavily on x serious-music side. The recital, sponsored by the Allied Arts Council, was at- ended by about 200 persons. From Bach's double-choir work, Sing Ye to the Lord, to be Chansons by Paul Hinde- mith, the choir snowed dedica- ion to its work, clean diction and a remarkable bass sec- tion. The bass work, m fact, was the major plus of the [roup: powerful, resonant, gor- [eously muted in the quite mo- nents. Directed by Robert Sblem, 35-year-old, American-born as- sociate professor of music and music education, the choir dis- played a good blend among the iltos, tenors and bass, but the sopranos tended to a stridency, which caused one often to by- lass the melody for another isten to the bass. The best numbers of the night were not of the serious calibre, but lighter, Christmas music, much of ft written or arranged by Canadians. It was n the Soon-Ah Will Be Done, the luron Carol and the Virgin Mary had a Baby Boy, that the choir varied its volume and empo to give far more color han achieved in previous num- This was by contrast to a tur- gid rendering of Haydn's The Seaven's Are Telling. A hymn of praise and certitude, the work suffered from a lagging tempo and a bland over-all mu- sical expression at odds with the excitement of the text. However, the Singers are a credit to the U of S and an ex- cellent representative of the university. The choir was ini tiated in 1959 as a Glee Club and evolved into a concer choir in 1963 under the direc tion of Mr. Solem. The singers vary in age from 17 to 36 years It has been far too long since Lethbridge audiences were given a chance to hear a mixed-voice choir of such men and to hear the lovely musi available to such groups. The recital left one grateful to the U of S and hoping a loca music teacher would take the hint and form a non-churcl mixed chorus, or male chorus in the city.
