TO bear Gulseppe De Luchl sins "In
Cellar Cool" or "Pro Peccatla" from
Rossini's "Stabat Mater," Is a rare
and Dleasurable experience. He bas a
basso-contanta voice of striking beauty,
sonority, and even " strength, and he
thinks of making bla home In thl
city. Born in Italy. Mr. De Luchl
studied for an operatic career and his
repertoire is varied and extensive. Sev
erai years ago he came to this country
as principal basso .with the Mascagnl
Grand Opera Company, and sang at the
Metropolitan Opera House, New vora
city. Mascagni and his operatic asso
ciates became involved in financial dif
ficulties, and drifted apart. De Luchl
was befriended by a Polish priest.
Father Bucakorskl, -and was employed
for two years aa a teacher in a school
at Detroit, Mich.. De Luchl re-entered
the concert field and was one of .the
artistes who sang here two years ago
with Liberatl's band. The engagement
was a highly successful one, and De
Luchl's newly-made Italian friends
were so pleased with his singing that
they asked him to make his home In
Portland. There are other bassos in
this city who can sing, deeper than
De Luchl his compass is from low' E
flat to F above middle C but not one
of these bassos have the even volume,
the easy, natural emission of sparkling
tone, and the dramatic fire of this pic
turesque Italian. He will sing a sacred
olo next Sunday morning at St. Mary s
Cathedral. Fifteenth and Davis streets.

The Paullst Choristers of ..' Chicago
have met with one ovation after an
other since their return to this coun
try from Rome, where they had . the
honor to sing before Pope Pius X. . One
picture is shown where the pope stands
in front of the boys, with ' a large
American flag near. The choir: was
organized -and trained principally to
enter the international choral competi
tion recently held in Parts, and it was
quite successful In winning .prizes. : At
a musical recital given by the; chor
lsters, in the Church of , St. Paul the
Apostle. New Tork - City, . six of' the
vocal numbers - then introduced were
sung by them at the contest in Paris.
These - numbers, are: Grieg's "Aye

'Salve Regina," Gounod's . Ave Maria
In A Flat, the Dubois Victoria, "Para
dls Perdu,". "Musette" by Gevaert. and
Gounod's "Praise Ye the Father." in
sheer beauty of tone these young sing
ers were remarkable,, and their singing
was the music not only of choir boys
but ef artists. Bays Musical -America.
Such wonderful results are due to the
Inspiring leadership of their director.
and organist Rev. William J. Finn, who
so controlled these 60 boys as to bring
out with rare - artistry . the varied
nuances of the music- The young chor
isters never -took their eyes from Fa
ther Finn during their numbers, .and
this close union between conductor and
singers resulted In a series .of Inter
pretations which were perfect in their
delineation of light and shade. - The
choristers were sent abroad at an ex
pe'nse of 828,000. which was -defrayed
partly by subscriptions, and partly by
the money which the choir had earned
on Us previous American tour: The
business of the choir Is conducted by
a society called the Paullst Choristers,
which Includes boys of the choir and
outside members. The leading' offi
cers of the society. Dr. George Griffin
and Gilbert A. Smith, are active singers
In the organization.' Above all the
other : factors in . the success of the
Paullst Choristers must be placed the
Influence of their . guiding spirit,
Father Finn, who is a splendid ' speci
men of the virile Irish-American priest
Originally an organist, his aspirations
throughout were for the priesthood, and
he now combines the duties of preacher
with those of choirmaster. Tin keeping
with the youth of the singers In his
charge Father Finn Js extremely youth
ful, considering the results which- he
has achieved. As he sat in his hotel
receiving congratulations on the morn
ing after the festival, lie gave many
signs of that concentrated nerve power
which Is reflected In the emotional fer
vor of the singing of. the Paulist Chor
