Mr. McRae explains that every two

proved herself as generous as she is
beautiful and gifted by rendering sev several

gram program was, indeed, a precious gem of
art and it is difficult to mention one
without mentioning all. However, the
Herdsman's Song, generally known as
the Echo Song, will long stand out in
the memory of those who heard it.
This song is of distinctly different
character than any other sung by
Miss Hempel during the evening. She
accompanied herself at the piano and
during the echoing did not use the
piano to guide her at all. As she
breathed the last note of the song, her
hands struck a chord on the piano,
thus showing how exquisitely true her
voice was even, in a most difficult
piece of music. The Virgin's Lullaby
and the Blue Danube waltz, always a
favorite, were especially enjoyed. But
the best was reserved for the last. In
response to the applause which fol
lowed Miss Hempel's last number,
and which refused to die down, Miss
Hempel returned and sang "Home,
Sweet Home," with the most wonder
ful simplicity and feeling. At the close
oi this simple yet heart gripping
melody, there were few dry eyes in the
theater and those who hail from other
parts, went back in thought and heart
to their native state or land.
Miss Hempel's voice, whether in
the difficult passages of Handel's
Cantata and Mozart's Aria or in the
simple lullabys and folk songs was
sweet, true and of purest quality, her
execution and technic were absolutely
perfect. If the old Latin proverb,
"Ars est celare artem" (it is an art to
conceal an art) is to be credited, then
Miss Hempel is, indeed ,a great artist.
Surely, not the closest and keenest ob observer

ALBERT IS AGGRIEVED
Editor Star: As one of the music
lovers of Ocala, I wish to enter my
protest against the criticism of the
Frieda Hempel concert on the 27th
inst., contained in the issue of the
Star of Jan. 28th.
It' is a 'rare thing for Ocala to be
fortunate enough to hear singers of
world renowned celebrity like Frieda
Hempel, and your write-up is calculat
ed to hurt our good little city, from a
musical standpoint. Knowing the edi
tor as well as I do, I am 'charitable
enough to make due allowance for his
lack of knowledge of the subject that
I think Hempel's rendition of
"Home, Sweet Home," ."Dixie" and
the "Blue Danube," was everything to
be desired. When you take into consid consideration
eration consideration the two latter were originally
written as instrumental and not vocal
selections, only the "frue artist" could
have rendered them as Hempel did.

have ignored the entire concert, than
to have written what you did.
