The Redemption by its sacred character is eminently fitted for a concert to be given Memorial Day. A work which was secular or of an ordinary type would seem entirely out of touch with the spirit which should animate us all, on a day sacred to the memory of those who suffered and died for our country. But this work is a record of humanity in need of redemption, of the tragic story of the crucifixion and the glorious triumph achieved over the grave by Him whose memory hallows such occasions as the one we celébrate on Saturday. Our appreciation of the sacrifice of our patriot soldiers will be heightened by the lessons of this great work Of the highest valué musically i must serve to make us all better We are confident that each appre ciative listener will think of thi greatest of aH tragedies ever afte with a more thorough understand ing of its lessons. So welcome th performance by the Choral Union on May 30, and look forward to an uplifting experience.
