GOUNOD'S ST. CECELIA MASS
Sung in on Excellent Manner by the
Choir of St. Patrick's Chnrch Under tho
Direction of Haydn F.vans Per
sonals unj llrief Items of News.
Gounod's "St. Cecilia" mass was sunj?
at St. Patrick's church yesterday morn
ing to a, large tnl appreciative con
gregation by a. choir of forty voice.-1.
The attempt to render such a dilllcult
mass 1 u. choir wholly composed of
ttmateurs, manifests considerable en
terprise which would, by some musical
authorities, be regarded as almost a
desecration of the works of the great
master, Gounod. The result, however,
proves that an amateur choir can, with
determination and thorough practice,
assisted by a conductor capable of
interpreting 'the music, aciiult them
selves with considerable credit, al
though there may be several points
in which the trained professional choir
would exhibit greater skill and liiiish.
The attempt deserves every encourage
ment in order to induce perseverance
1n acquiring a more Intimate knowl
edge with the works of men who have
left behind them monuments in the
world of music.
Professor Haydn Kvans lias worked
with tangible results at St. Patrick's
church, but Is handicapped in tin' fart
that his sopranos are immeasurably
nuperior to the other parts of the choir.
The ease with which the holies suns
ind held the upper A on several occa
sions was an achievement which
lilghly paid choristers oftentimes fail
in the attempt.
Mrs. Kate Sullivan, who sang the
eoprano solos, discharged her duties in
a charming manner. Her rendition
showed careful study and a thorough
grasp of her part. Tile solos were ren
dered in an easy nnd natural manner,
devoid of the strained effort which pe
culiarly mars this class of music. The
tenor soloist, John Fecney, labored
under a severe cold and was unable to
eing all the snlos. Despite thin draw
back he was able to sing his part in
the "Sanctus" In a creditable manner
nnd Instead of singing the higher notes
nn octave lower, which would have
paved much labor, lie gave the music as
written. John Connelly, the bass solo
ist, was excellent In the "Gloria in
Kxcelsis" nnd Interpreted th" music
with almost faultless taste. His work
in the other pieces was also highly
Probably the "Credo" was the part
in which the choir sang at their best.
The conception of the music was all
that could be desired nnd cniv-equenUy
the part was rendered In a sympathetic
manner, which is so essential to a cor
rect Interpretation. In the ppp. pas
sages of the "Sanctus" the sympathy
lietween the varloin voice!) was most
pleasing nnd the organ accompaniment
was reduced to a nicety, ensuring a
perfect blending of the whole. The
"r.enedietus" was also rendered with
correct taste, the transition from the
planofortisslmo to the fortissimo pas
sages being aeocmpllshed In on easy
and harmonious manner, the precision
and regularity being ronsplcuous. With
ft little balancing of voices tho choir
would soon assert Itself capable, of
undertaking still greater tasks.
As at present constituted, tho excel
lence of the sopranos shows an appar
ent poverty In the other parts which,
in reality, does not exist to the extent
which might n.t first be Imagined.
Professor Haydn Kvans, of whose
well-earned reputation no mention
need be made, presided nt the organ,
and was assisted by Miss Harriet Ward,
violin, nnd Miss Gertrude Holyok
French as harpist. P.oth ladles assisted
materially In ensuring the success of
the rendition of the mass.

OPPOSED TO DANCING.
Key. Dr. llawxliurst Penonnces It in Em
Hev. I. H. Hawxhurst, D. D.,
preached a stirring sermon last evening
to a large congregation at the Park
Place Methodist Episcopal church, his
theme being "Dancing," based upon
Exodus, xv, -0.
In an Interesting manner the rev
erend gentleman dealt with the origin
of the dance, which, he stated, was
over 3.000 years old. The Jews made
use of the dance for sacred purposes,
expressions of Joy and thankfulness to
God, and particularly the celebration
of religious festivals. Hut in those
dances the sexes did not Intermingle
nnd when it was customary to celebrate
domestic Joy in dancing, as in the case
of Hcrodius, the same process was ob
served and sexes were separated. In
all modern dances the mingling of sexes
was an essential Ingredient and the
dance, whether carried on in the parlor
or the pl die ha 'J room, was not with
out Its evi.l tendencies.
It was almost impossible to separate
publls dancing from moral Impurity
and the dance in the parlor, the ball
roam and the brothel were all on the
F.iime road, but some were a little
further on than, the others. The char
acter of the dance carried the brand of
licentiousness for centuries. The pub
lie dances of Greece were performed by
females of dissolute character. No na
tion In the world was so addicted to
dancing as France, and scores are sent
from that nation every year to all purts
of the world und come from a clas, of
society where virtue is the exception
lather than the rule. When these re-
males appear on the stages In this nnd
other countries, purses are opened and
salaries paid higher than the stipends
of otlicers cf the state or ministers of
the church. The enthusiasm they
created In the theaters oftentimes made
Dancing and drani-drlnklng were on
the same road, and liquor, It was al
leged, vm necessary to prolong the
dance. There were also many physical
evils attendant to the dance, the vitiat
ed utmosphere. the crowded room, the
unsuitable dress, and the temptations
to drink which women encountered.
Attending public dances was not con
sidered consistent In professing Chris
tians. The reverend gentleman ulso strongly
dis.ipptoved of ipaivnts bringing up
Mitiirchlldren to attend dancing schools
and closed with an appeal to professing
Christians not. to place themselves In
positions which might tempt them to
go back Into Ihe world. Let them make
as wide a margin as possible between
carnal amusements and themselves so
that Iniquity would not be their ruin.
