Background of Candles and Trees
Gives Yuletide Spirit to
UNIQUE EFFECT GAINED IN
RENDITION OF CAROLS
(By Sidney B. Coates)
With groups of candles and Christ-
mas trees suggestive of the Christ-
mas spirit, as a background, the Ypsi-
lanti Normal choir, Frederick Alex-
ander conducting, gave a program of
national Christmas music and gave it
as only a carefully trained and en-
thusiastic group can, in the assembly
hall of the Union Sunday afternoon.
First in excellence were the various
carols from the Russian, German,
French and Norwegian composers.
Every number was marked by absolute
co-operation on the part of the chorus
members with the conductor, and the
interpretative effects were worked out
in each phrase and note. Among the
Russian numbers "Gospodi Pomilui"
by Lvovsky was both unique and ef-
fective. The constant repetition of
the two words seems to increase their
solemnity as they are taken up in
varying harmonies. Other numbers
equally effective were Grier-'s "Ave
Marns Stella" and two old French
carols, "The Three Kings" and "Chan-
son Joyeuse de Noel."
Throughout the carols the chorus
work was sustained and ing.these
numbers were Mr. Kerr sang, the
chorus furnished the background on
which the solo work stood out effect-
ive and clear in contrast.
Sing Parts of "Messiah"
The program ended with three se-
lections from Handel's "Messiah."
"And the Glory of the Lord" and the
"Hallelujah Chorus" were up to the
high quality of the rest of the pro-
gram, but both of these numbers call
for heavy bass and tenor sections
which are not at Mr. Alexanders dis-
posal. Carl Lindegren in the recita-
