In our feeble way, we would rec-
ommend to the meditation of American
artists the sentiments expressed by
Madame Pasquali regarding the merit
of the productions of American song
writers. It makes us more than a little
optimistic to know at least one Amer-
ican singer of first rank who does not
apologize for the presence of Amer-
ican songs on her program. We arcs
personally too proud of our small
achievements in the field of music to
criticise Madame Pasquali's program
as a combination of the "common" with
she lofty. We do not, indeed,- pretend
to give to our native productions equal
rank with a Mozart aria. But we con-
tend most.heartily that our native
songs have a legitimate place in a
Choral Union song recital. America
