night, Dec. 21, at eight o'clock
Roseburg cut another notch in
Its cultural annals last night with
the presentation for the first time
of George Frederick Handel's
"The Messiah," by the Roseburg
From the opening notes of the
overture to the echoing remains
of the chorus "Hallelujah," the ca
pacity crowd was captured com-
Eletely by 50 voices of the Rose
urg Choral society, led by Di
rector Charles A. Ricketts.
Half-a-hundred townsfolk, many
i with little background in music
! but with a great desire to sing,
provided their listeners with a
little touch of the true Christmas
The imagination was stirred as
Christ's biography was told in
song by the chorus and nine solo
ists. After the overture, Wendell A.
Johnson, tenor, reported "Every
Valley Shall Be Exalted" with
sureness and clarity.
Don Castel, bass, handled a
seemingly difficult number, "But
Who May Abide the Day of His
Coming?" in a manner that in
dicated much preparation. Then
Marion Ross bravely attempted
to reach the far corners of the
auditorium with "Behold! A ir
gin Shall Conceive" in her light,
contralto voice. Mrs. Ross re
ceived able assistance from Mar
tha Jane Plimpton at the piano.
Both Mrs. Plimpton and Es
ther Geddes, the latter at the or
gan, helped balance off the vocal
portion of the program with in
strumental introductions and ac
companiment. Herschel D. Scott displayed his
versatility by first rendering
"For Behold, Darkness Shall Cov
er The Earth," accompanied by
the organist, then walking across
the stage and in his deep, rich
bass voice sang "The People
That Walked in Darkness," aid
ed by Mrs. Plimpton.
Part one of "The Messiah" was
brought to an end with solos by
Helen Bamford, Lois Rich and
Marion Jones, punctuated with
a stirring "Glory to God" by the
Part two was opened with two
