THE music cabinet of a 'cello player can usually be relied upon to yield a number of pieces written for the 'cello by David Popper-a 'cello player himself, and one who had the technique of the instrument, not only under his own fingers, but, so to speak, under the fingers of every 'cello player who ever handled the instrument. The music he wrote for the 'cello consisted only of minor concert pieces, but they were extremely well done, and possessed a charm which will keep them in the repertory long after today. He was a Czech musician, and held the post of professor at the Royal Conservatoire at Budapest, but he toured Europe, and made some appearances in London.

Conductor, Sir HUGH S. ROBERTON

SIR HUGH ROBERTON âhe was knighted last year-has been the conductor of the Glasgow Orpheus Choir since 1906, the year in which he founded it. It is one of the best-known choirs in the British Isles, and all the credit for its fame that can possibly attach to a conductor apart from his forces is due to Roberton. Every year at about this time the choir visits London, and these visits have become distinct musical events. Almost always on these occasions they go to Downing Street, by invitation either from No. 11 (that was, of course, in the days when Mrs. Philip Snowden, now Lady Snowden, was hostess there) or from No. 10. They have also been to ' Chequers,' by invitation of the Prime Minister.
Sir Hugh is not only a conductor, adjudicator and composer, but he is a lecturer, journalist, and author. He can write a humorous sketch on a subject of his own choosing with' any man living. Some of his best work appears in a little paper, entitled 'The Lute,' which is the official organ of the Glasgow Orpheus Choir, and circulates amongst its members. Copies occasionally reach London, and if there is a better way of knowing all about the human side of a choir, and its adventures when it is not singing, than by reading the numbers of this little magazine, it has yet to be discovered.
