On January 25 the Choral Union gave a performance of Handel’s [sic] »Acis and Galatea« and Cliffe’s »Ode to the North‑east wind.« Both works had the charm of novelty, the former not having had a place on the Choral Union’s programmes for many years past and the latter being quite new. Under Dr. Coward’s inspiring guidance the choruses were sung with fine effect. The solo music in Handel’s work was given by Miss Esta d’Argo and Messrs. Webster Millar, Joseph Cheetham and Herbert Brown, the last‑named receiving a well‑deserved ovation for his rendering of »O ruddier than the cherry.« A memorable feature of the thirteenth Classical Concert on February 1 was the masterly performance of Schumann’s Pianoforte concerto in A minor by Mr. Emil Sauer, whose magnificent playing evoked an enthusiasm seldom witnessed at these concerts. The programme also included two novelties – Strauss’s »Macbeth,« and »Danse Cosaque« from Tchaikovsky’s »Mazeppa« the first‑named, although splendidly played by the Scottish Orchestra, being received with very mixed feelings by the audience.
