'"'"'''"''''''b Songs of Great France," in the eostumif of I x"" . p" " m . -a?
By HENRIETTA M. REES.
f ANY ONE should ask me
what the pnnctpal reason
which keeps a great many
of us from being truly
great is, i snouid be tempt'
ed to answer lack of at.
tention to detail. There is another
class of the not-truly-great who pay
fr too much attention to detail, so
mucn tnat they never give you a good
finished idea of the music they are
reproducing. But in proportion to
the class who pay too little attention
to detail, it has been my experience
to find the other far in the minority.
Just as the great criminal comes to
his doom through some tiny little de
tail which he either entirely over
looked, or which he considered too
small to be of any consequence, so
many an aspiring artist falls short
of his goal through some apparently
insignificant part of either his technic
or his t interpretation, which he per
haps did not notice, or which he felt
was unimportant Just as a great
many other criminals come to a much
quicker doom through the lack of at
tention to more than one detail, so
a great many other musical aspirants
do not seem to be able to gain an
inch in their chosen field through
their indifference to the many small
parts which go to make up their
completed work. Yet neither the
criminal nor the musical worker can
realize it. The criminal no doubt
thinks that the detective who unrav
eled his secret must have had some
other knowledge, and the musical
worker thinks the person who does
not praise him upon all points is
jealous, or sore, and then he keeps
on doing the same bad things again,
and again, and they and the criminals
both think through some special provi
dence they will get by with it. Not
that there is any special connection
between musicians and criminals. On
, the contrary, the criminals are nega
tive workers and the musicians posi
tive workers. Lack of attention to
detail being a negative force speeds
the former on his way, and in due
time he arrives at the point for which
he is headed, the jail The musical
workers are headed in another direc
tion, and lack of attention to detail
retards their progress in due pro
portion, and unless they are careful
they never arrive anywhere.
Take the singers, for example.
There are many who are naturally
musical, and they work diligently
upon certain parts of their training.
' But a number of them (principally
sopranos and tenors, although often
contraltos and baritones are just as
bad), while they have beautiful high
tones, have not worked sufficiently
upon the low tones. Consequently
when they sing lower and lower, the
sound does not carry, and the poor
listener sits and watches their 'mouths
work, and hears hardly a sound until
they sing high again. They have
paid attention to the detail in de-
veloping the high tones, but they
have not in developing the lower
ones. Then there are those others
who do not pay enough attention to
the details of enunciation, of whom
people say, "a lovely voice, but we
couldn't understand a word." Or
even others, who hiss every s so
loud that attention drawn to it,
rather than to the sense of the song,
or others who seem to sing with a
rigid face, and who take all the joy
out of a happy song by singing it
so that a word like grace sounds as
though it meant graves, and as though
it was sad rather than merry.
Yet all of these things and many
others which keep some singers from
being truly great can be run down
into lack of attention to the details
of technic or interpretation. Nine
times out of 10 it is not the things
people have worked upon which are
bad it is the things they haven't
Then there are the instrumentalists,
the violinists who develop a gooa
- bow arm, but have a poor left hand,
or who have a good left hand and a
poor bow arm; those who vibrate too
much and those who vibrate not
enough or evenly, or those who do
not thrill because they do not express
their rhythm, nor whatever they do
feel with sufficient regard to the many
details which have a part in portray
inv it all because thev have not de
voted themselves to the details which
will hrinr their work to an even
Nor must we forget the not quite
great pianists, who also often have
hand technic in each hand separately,
but who sometimes take the liberty of
playing each hand separately when
they should be played together and
when they could be with much better
effect, if they had pam any aucnuun
to the detail of being careful to do it.
Or the pianists who may have an
abundance of hand technic, but who
pedal so indifferently that they; can
never become even "near-great un
less they improve it. Or take all of
those musical workers collectively,
who are not truly great, who work
out a long and obvious phrase beauti
fully, and miss several other little ones
which are either contained m it, or
which are right beside it, just waiting
for a chance to be gracefully Fren.te2
also, just as the truly great do. And
consider some more of the equally
not great people who do not find a
little left hand melody there, which
may be sung for a moment, or those
who sing the words "how wondrousty
just as if they were "how winsomely,
and do not realize the breadth and tone
color possible in the one phrase, nor
the daintiness or lightness of touch
needed in the other. And just think
of all those who do not work out the
details of dynamics, of technic or
interpretation who are only kept trom

incidence, in their makeup.
There are untalented ones, who do
not see the details or feel their signi
ficance and importance in the music
they would play for us. There are
the naturally versatile ones, who can
go in for music and do well, just the
same as they could do anything else,
if they decided to apply themselves to
it, but who unfortunately do not ever
seem to take their music seriously
enough, to work out the details thor
oughly. et if they only would. There
are some who only have a few kinds
of details to devote themselves to, in
order to improve their work 50 to
100 per cent. There are others, who
unfortunately have such a great mass
of details to be worked out in their
work, that it is hard to decide where
to begin. But the great artists have
applied themselves long and per
sistently to the mastery of details, and
the greatest artists are those who do
not allow any of them to escape, but
who bring each one out in its proper
place and proportion for the most
satisfactory and artistic result.
"Marouf," the new opera presented
by the Metropolitan Opera company,
and written by the French composer,
Maurice Kabaud, in the general opin
ion of the critics, is brilliant, and
spectacular, with well written music,
which is full of oriental color, but
which lacks inventive inspiration.
Baltimore is a city which has come
into prominence recently on account
of the many interesting things which
it has done musically, and because it
has a musical mayor. It is now con
sidering the public office of commis
sion of music, to administer its present
and future municipal musical service,
according to Musical America.

Bush Fruit in City Gardens
and on Farms Should
Be Pruned Now
Bush fruits in the city gardens and
on the farm should be pruned during
the fall or winter in order to increase
the yield of berries next summer. The
period between the falling of the
leaves in autumn and the starting of
growth in spring is the season in
which currants and gooseberries
should be pruned. The ideal currant
bush at which the pruner should aim
has six to eight main1 branches, while
the gooseberry has eight to 12. None
of these branches should be over
three years old. Two or three of the
main branches of the currant and
three to four main, branches of the
gooseberry should be removed each
season, the older branches being cut
out and a like number of the most
vigorous canes of the current season's
growth let to take their place. All
other young canes and all canes bent
to or near the ground should also be
removed. If this svstem is followed
each year after the bushes reach the
age ot tnree years, pruning win d
relatively simple and the plantation
kept in good condition. ,
