UNIVERSITY CO OP]
In Twilight Hour
By MARGARET STAUFF
At the Twilight Hour concert
Sunday afternoon, John Stark
Evans, organist, played a varied
i program of unusual interest, in
| eluding "Lamentation," by Guil
mont, dedicated to Prince Lucicn
Campbell, former president of the
i University, whose interest was
| largely responsible for the Sunday
afternoon programs which now
have become a regular part of the
life of the University. For six
years this particular number has
; been played once each autumn in
; memory of President Campbell.
In splendid contrast to this state
ly melody, “Toccata," by Gordon
I3alch Nevin, was quick and bril
liant, of changing moods, ending
with strength and power. “Hymn
of Glody," by Pietro Yon was well
interpreted, the theme appropriate
to Armistice day.
A number of rare charm was
“Pensive Mood" by David Burn
ham, played from the Echo organ
by Miss Frances Brockman, vio
linist. The solo so completely
blended with the accompaniment
that the effect was unbelievably
beautiful, and from the first quiet
chords until the last notes died
away, the large audience ‘ was
hushed in complete appreciation.
“Adagio Lamentoso” from sym
phony "Pathetique” by Tchaikow
ski, is well known for the subdued
ending of the finale, and was
played with full understanding of
its stately character. Retarded,
and finally dying away, accompan
ied by a single bass tone, the final
chords are wistful and appealing,'
and chosen as the final number on
this memorial hour, was particu
larly satisfying with the general
atmosphere of the program.
