TYPICAL AMERICAN VOICE
Influence of Climate in Developing
Slngrers Ternlnn as Brunhllde
Mrs. Carpenter on Wng-ner.
It used to be said of Nevada that she'
had the "typical American voice," and
this naturally brings up the question:
What is the typical American voice?
A little observation will show that It
is clear and telling in timbre and large
of range, but beyond this it will bo found
to vary with the climatic conditions of
the different sections. Mezzo-3opranos
abound on the Atlantic coast and in the
Middle West, but along the borders of
the Pacific there seems to be a dlsposi-
tion on the part of Dame Nature to de-
t immmm .N
taBMB mmmm ran iJQMiw , J- mgBM -, , m '
Bandmaster Ellis Brooki, director of this -week's musical spectacle at
the Metropolitan Theater.
velop voices that possess phenomenally
high notes. Such was Nevada's voice
when, hardly more than a girl, sho made
her debut in Europe about 1880. These
extraordinarily high, girlish tones have
now left her; but her voice is still above
the average as to the extent of Its up
per Tange. Sybil Sanderson, beautiful,
talented and energetic, who made such
an astonishing success at the Opera
Comlque of Paris in 18S9, was born in
Sacramento, Cal. Her -voice was of such
phenomenal compass and purity that it
won Tor her the friendship of Massenet,
w ho composed operas for the express pur
pose of exhibiting It to advantage. Of
Miss Yaw, also a California girl. It has
been said that tbqse letters of the alpha
bet that are not In her name are to ho
found In her voice. Deficient though this
is in some respects, yet Its extraordinary
range has been acknowledged by all. Port
land people will recall her visit to this
city a few years ago, at which time she
sang notes in altlsslmo that it was
claimed and no one has contradicted it
have never been reached by human olce,
with the solitary exception of Agujarl,
an Italian singer of the 18th century, who
sang B fiat in altlsslmo and two good
octaves below. It Is Miss Yaw's mis
fortune that sue is now reaping the ef
fect of an unwise musical training. With
in the past few years California has also
given a noted contralto to the world In
the person of Mrs. Katherlne Bloodgood,
who is now taking her rightful place
among the greatest living singers. Both
Miss Yaw and Mrs. Bloodgood are from
Perhaps enough has been said to show
that conditions are favorable for the de
velopment of exceptional voices in the
central and lower part of the Pacific
coast. And it is not unreasonable to hope
that the future will bring forth singers
of peerless worth from that section, such
as will have the world at their feet. There
is everj thing in favor of this assumption,
and only one thing against It, viz , the un
propitlous character of the English lan
guage. The effect of climate upon the voice can
not be doubted. A mild and uniform cli
mate such as preallson this coast and
in Southern countries generally, Imparts
to the voice mure softness, richness and
compass. The Northern nations, on the
other hand, have voices which, though
powerful, are rarely so soft. They lack
that Indescribable limpidity and sweet
ness we percehe In the Southern voice,
even when used In speaking. Besides, ac
cording to Albert Bach, the Northern
voices are more limited In compass. The
tendency is to produce basses'' In the
North. Russia Is noted for Its cholr-slng-ers,
who reach the lowest contra-basso
notes with extraordinary volume of sound,
and with, the greatest ease; the quality
of tone, however, is not greatly to be ad
mired. Southern Iiay, on the other hand,
is rather deficient In deep voices, espe
cially In deep basses,, and, strange to say,
the few she produces enjoy eo popularity.
In the South the vocal organs are. like
the whole body, not so robust in their
structure as those in the Northern coun
tries; the vocal cords of tenors and so
pranos are thinner than those of basses
and altos, hence we find proportionately
more sopranos and tenors In the South
than In the North.
Arguing on this basis, therefore, we
would naturally expect the typical wom
an's voice of the Pacific coast to be a
high soprano, rather light in quality, with
unusual purity of tone And this is ex
actly what Nevada possesses.
It has been some time nce any Wag
nerian singer here has triumphed as Mile.
Ternina did In "Tannhauser" and there
was no reason for diminished delight af
ter her Brunnhllde was revealed on Wed
nesday last, says the New York Sun of
February , In all its salient features her
art was identical. There were the same
eloquence. Intelligence and Imagination in
her acting. She gl es more significance to
the conventional Wagnerian gestures than
any woman since Lilli Lchmann. When
Mmo. Lohmann was waked from her long
sleep In "Siegfried" and lifted her hands
to greet the sun. there was an Immense
meaning in every gesture. The heart of
the awakened Valkyrie maiden was laid
bare In the attitude of rapture and delight
with which she raised her arms to rreet
the l.ght. Ia the treatment her successors
give to this scene, one gets qnly the idea
of an uninspired Imitation that shows- the
accustomed gesture, hut no trace of its
In "Die Walkuere" on Wednesday night,
an. unfamiliar Brunnhllde was presented
by the young sonrano. Her voice as well
as her manner of singing made it improb
able that she would prove to be. "one of
the shrieking, strenuous Amazons who
have been seen In the part so frecuently
that this conception- of the role has come
to be looked upon as the correct one. It
was the tender and human side of the
Valkyrie maiden that she emphasized, and
she was the loving daughter and sister,
rather than a barbaric Penthlslea. Her
scene with Frlck as she leaves Wotan af-
j ter the acrimonious discussion between the
two, gave a iair example of Mile. Ter
nina's ability to Illuminate scenes gener
ally unnoticed with suggestive and artistic
action, -which seems so suited to the situ
ation that one is surprised it has never
been thought of before.
Combined with all this impressive dra
matic ability Is her beautiful voice, which
Is managed with a skill that makes her
vocalism a delight in itself. German
singers, with such a method of voice pro
duction as Mile. Ternanl possesses are
i rare today.
Mile. Ternlna1 Is riot a beauty on the
stage, b,ut her face Is handsome in rath-
er a heroic mold and she is a figure of
dignity and grace always. In every detail
of her acting, there is never found any
straining after effect, merely for the sake
of doing something uncommon or start
ling. Like her singing, it is Inspired only
by the loftiest union of art, lntelllgenco
and deep feeling.

Musical Club Notes.
The coming week Is an Important and
Interesting one to the Musical Club, bring
ing, as it does, the organ recital by Clar
ence Eddy, on Tuesday evening, and a
lecture by Mrs. Rathbone Carpenter on
Wednesday afternoon. The latter Is a
well-known musician 'of Grand Rapids,
Mich., who has long been known as an
enthusiastic admirer of Richard Wagner.
She has spent several years In studying
and analyzing the masterpieces of the
great composer, and In learning the themes
and motives which he uses throughout
his works. She has studied his literature,
memorized his notes, sung his songs, and
.imbued herself with, his spirit until sjie
has no equal in that part of the country
in Wagnerian lore. When study and an
alysis were Insufficient, she visited Bal
reuth, the home of the great ".master,
dined at his table, was the guest of his
wldbw, breathed the sacred atmosphere
of his home, and now her lectures, some
eight or ten In number, are attracting the
attention of literary rind musical dilet
tante. Mrs. Carpenter is being recognized
as a great Wagner lecturer and authority.
Her lectures are not stiff, cut-and-dried
affairs, full of technicalities that only mu
sicians can understand or appreciate, but
nreglven in a purely popular and descrip
tive, story-telling style that appeals to all.

trip to Australia, on whieh trip he became
engaged, matrimonially, to his wife.
Mr. Gp odwln needed a leading woman to
accompany him to the Antipodes, and his
manager went to Mietr Elliott,, who had
just left Daly's, company, and prevailed'
upon her to accept the vacant place. The
decision was telegraphed at once to Good

"All right; but Isn't she too tall?"
When Miss Elliott saw this reply, she
declined the offer with equal promptness,
and immediately left for San Francisco to
take the leading place In a stock company.
But Mr. Goodwin, with the proverbial
changeability of genius, rtgretted his query
almost as soon as be had made it. and he

her to so with his company. But it cost
