Auditorium. The choir was directed by its founder Edith Moeller with Paul Baner at the piano. We have Long enjoyed this charming and versatile choir. They have been described by Dylan Thomas As Angels in at. Their Best they sing like a veritable choir of cherubim. They have a tone which by turns can be incandescent or veiled. The Quality is always so pure and diction is so Good that they should be a Model for adults. The personnel consists of female voices plus five adolescent baritones who sing without the by catchiness of Canadian adolescents. With one or two deep contralto who can Supply a Tenor tessitura they can sing mixed voice music in a highly satisfactory manner. They have Many soloists All most capable and they were never better employed than in the Solo parts of Schumann s Ballad Gypsy life. Each Solo was excellent and the Youthful baritone was most refreshing. It was a pity that the management allowed late Comers to be seated during the opening item Mendelssohn s song of the Lark. These rude people ruined the effect by banging seats whispering and opening their lunch or so it seemed. Smetana s song of the Swal lors showed up the female Clement mannequin s Long de voices Well and illustrated the essentials for Good part singing Good outside parts. Throughout the program there were Many Beautiful effects such As the final chord of the 16th Century composer Sefl s chiming at Speyer with its ethereal Diminu Endo. The pro Gram never pandered to popu Lar second rate taste but maintained a High calibre through out the Mast Lovely singing came in that delightful Madrigal of the netherlandish Genius Orlan do i Lasso Echo song. For this fan voices placed at the Back of the choir provided the scrip Tive piece la Guerre is splendid in its variety of rhythms and descriptive phrases. It is almost As famous As that composer s be chant Des Noiseaux. It was Sung in a Fine flexible manner and in spite of its length maintained pitch very Well. Of the German folksong the Sun shines no More was very typical with its nicely curved phrases in a major Mode. Of the other folksong deep River was charming but lacked the yearning that we associate with performance by Southern negroes. The japanese group offered a problem. We Are so used to the ersatz Type of Oriental songs found in the Mikado of Gilbert and Sullivan that these songs sounded much like them and also spurious with their additional 19th Century Western har Mony. In the Kentucky Ballad the Cherry tree Carol we had a Young lady with a Low contralto voice singing a Tenor part with great Beauty of tone and phrase. This was the same Young lady who announced the program with a Fine speaking voice full of warmth and Enthus s i a s m three 20th Century pieces by Distler Orff and Brit ten each tested the choir s Abili ties and were a Welcome Vari Ety to the earlier music. After a very taxing schedule it was to be expected that these Young people would tire and this showed in some loss of pitch in the two folksong Little fills us with nostalgia but no sadness. We regret tie passing of the Small but the Large one with its indifferent acoustics and generally uncomfortable chairs so tightly packed together on the main floor that As we squeezed ourselves into them we were forcibly reminded of the Limerick about the Large Bishop who bought a Small car the Bishop has bought a new Austin and of it is really exha Uslin. His feet and his Knees they fit in with ease but his Abdomen has to be forced however culture lovers be not Down hearted. The auditorium will still be used for a limited time for boxing and wrestling school system rapped the secular Public school sys tem came in for critical exam. Nation sunday night at a panel discussion at Deer Lodge United Church panel members decided should have some role in education but no clearly defined role was established. Or. W. C. Lorimer Deputy minister of education defended the government s position of state support for Public schools Only but conceded the Church has a role in education. We have already achieved technological competence. Now we need to achieve social and ethical or. Lorimer said. Other panellists wanted to see state support for a wide Range of private schools and More emphasis on religion in the schools. Bill Trebilcox free press columnist and panel member said the Church has to do one thing in. Education teach a Basic moral that moral Law or. Trebilcox said should be based on the Judaeo Christian heritage of the majority which draws its Basic moral attitudes from the 10 a Basic belief we have no moral background on which to base or. Trebilcox said. The whole private state school controversy in Manitoba no longer hinges on the old roman Catholic protestant conflict a j. Muller superintendent of roman Catholic schools said. Of the 54 private schools in Manitoba today Only 24 Are roman Catholic operated or Muller said. In a pluralistic state support for Educa Tion should not be limited to a monolithic trustee a. H. Conklin of St James Assiniboia s a i of churches should be concerned about the moral aspects involved in education today. The Church he said is losing its fluence on the Young. Public schools have to give he said. Such leadership includes guidance coun Selling but programs offered such As drug talks do not dwell on the spiritual the fear of proliferation. Of schools or. Lorimer said was a reason for state support Only to Public schools. A democratic society can have Only so much diversity before that society flies pressure for state supported private schools he said comes from parents who want unusual education for their children or expensive private schools supported by Public one Parent speaking from the floor in favor of Public schools said. Little children learn to know and like each other before they learn Why they should hate or fear some one else because of different Echo and milling could have More Beautiful 50 schools to see show the Yong company of the maw Fafek theatre Centre started its few a dots m fee brother come dance with me and Mary went through a Forest of thorns. It was a pity that the piano was not closer to the choir. This. Would have corrected a time lag. Which made the piano appear to drag in certain accompanied works. Or. Baiter s Harp Glissando i the Britten Deo Gratias were most effective. We feel that Between each folksong be should have waited to avow the tonality of one. Piece to die out before we were a fringed into the new tonality of the next piece. We believe that the Peculiar minor introduction to deep River was an Accident but the choir never wavered.
