to an audience. TIitk is little plot to
the play. It is a luixesMun of scenes on
the tlie farm in hay making time, tnp
p.stdlo extend over two days. The
haymakers start out in ths morning in
the chorus "Awav to the Meadowa
away." The mowers sing as they swing
their scythes, the music being arranged to
suit perfectly the .peculiar motion of mow-
-i witli a scythe. After the u,j,ii.j

ment suiting the action of lo-;nnnd

workers respond with alacrity to the
farmer's wslcoms call, "Come to Din
ner" and echo the chorus -illi the
lieiirtinesa which would be natural were
the circumstances real, After dinner,
there is more mowing and spreading.
I hen the hay is raktd up and the day's
work is ended. The iatioieis are "very
tiled and sleepy" and slum tier overtakes
them in a gent'e cho.ua of sopnrilic
quality. Then there are voices of the
night, ci iclels and katydids chirping,
and a little later, William, one of the
farmer's able assistants, indulges In
serenai'e to Mary, the farmer's daughter.
This serenade by William and its
response, in dream son;, by Mary, is
one of the gems of the cantata. After
th's, counts Snipkins, bent on txprcss
ing in serenade his tender feelings
toward Katv, the dairy-maid, but with
success that ia dubious.
On Ihe morning of the second day, the.
chorus, refreshed by slumber and bright
as crickets, greet one another in the
liiely chorus, 'Vood Morning." The
distant tield of hay stacks, aprearine
like tents in the dim, misty light of the
early morning, gives inspiration to the
male voices for a grand semi-chorus in
military measure, "llow Like some
Tented Camp." The second dav do s
not go as smoothly as the first. The air
grows intensely hot; "no breath stirs
Ihe leaves" and "the heavens areas
braes ;" every thing is weighed down by
the cloic, oppreisivs heat. Then s
cloud appears in the weBt and grows
Willi alarming rapidity. A storm is
coming and, in the "Hurry" chorus, the
hay makers put forth the moat frantic
sir .rts to get their hay under shellsr
before it ruins, and succeed with no
time to spare. Then the thunder lolls,
the wind howls and the ruin comes in a
rattling deluge, all vividly portrayed in
the music. After this the aim agaiu
tomes forth, the rainbow appears and
"all nature now rejoices." The cantata
closes with a grand chorus, "Harvest

I. M. lsham takes the part o! the
farmer, his vigorous baritone suiting the
part to perfection. The leading soprano
part, that ot Mary, is one that requires
voice ol lar greater than ordinary
capability to handle it, but Miss Carrie
White fills the role with ease. Her
voice combines power, flexibility and
range with a quality of very unusual
sweetness. Miss llertlm Ilarrie.
Anna, the aecuud soprano, sings her
art charmingly, with tones very clear
and sweet. Miss Maggie Meade is Katy,
the dairymaid and her solo is one ol the

William, the tenor, iu which his voice
appeals to line advantage. The role ol
John, the bass, is taken by A. K

on all sides. He goes mowing and is in
mortal (ear lest the man behind might
cut his legs from under him. He gets
mixed up with a hornet's nest and is in
hot water a great dual of the time.
In this cantata there are no mediocre
or tamo pieces thrown in to till it up,
but every number has an excellence of
its own and the lively variety that
ensues is a feature ol supreme excellence.
