nectlon with tha "Requiem": which may
not be general ly known.
Part of this Requiem had been written
before for another Requiem and that for
no leas than tha distinguished - musical
personage .Rossini. When Rossini died,
Verdi, who was at the height ot.hla
musical activity, thought that It would
be a great thing to arrange a "composite1
Requiem for hla distinguished contempo
raryeach chosen musician to write each
ona part of the Mass; and so Verdi wrote
tha "Libera Me," and other portions were
written by other leading musicians,
Each ot these was counted worthy to be
a cowritef with Verdi at .that time:
sack did his best, but after It waa all
dona It was so absolutely Incongruous and
Inconsistent and unmatched that tha
scheme was abandoned. But Verdi kept
his "Libera Me" and wrote tha whole
Requiem afterwards, ss ststed, for the
anniversary ot th death of Count Man
aonl. i ' '
The Mendelssohn choir will have two
"extra" rehearsals between now and the
concerts and even thing Is being done to
present the best work that haa yet been
shown by this organisation. Tha splendid
