ALBERT DEWAR (tenor) Ambroise Thomas, although known almost wholly now by Mignon, was the composer of at least twenty operas and full-sized ballets which enjoyed great popularity in the second half of last century. In his own day, indeed, it is no exaggeration to say that he was easily the most popular of composers for the Paris stage. The latter part of his life, however, was spent in teaching as head of the famous Paris Conservatoire-a post which he held for twenty-five years. It was the success of his opera
Hamlet, following on Mignon which won him that distinction, and to Mignon he owed the reward of the Grand Cross of the Legion of Honour, which was given him on the occasion of its thousandth performance. For some years Thomas was attached to the Opera-Comique, for which he composed a number of operas, including Le Caïd which was first performed in 1843.

St. Mary the Virgin's is the Cathedral Church of the Diocese of Glasgow and Galloway, of which the Right Rev. John Russell Darbyshire is Bishop. The church was built in 1871 and consecrated in 1884. It is a large, well-proportioned building with two aisles and transepts and a side chapel dedicated to Saint Anne.
The congregation of St. Mary's traces its history throughout the troubled times of the eighteenth century when the Episcopal Church in Scotland was subject to severe penal laws, largely owing to the Jacobite sympathies of its members. ,
