Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 7, No. 3. May 3, 1944



What we propose to do would presumably interest any prospective new members. Well, we have begun with a short four-part piece by Dvorak which has trashy words for which we will probably substitute Latin ones. We intend to sing that remarkable piece of Tschaikovsky usually known as "Legend"—in the Oxford Book of Carols. And then some of the things we did last year, say, "The Farmer's Daughters," for the good fun of it, and a couple of the Bach chorales, for the music in them.

The thing I look forward to hearing most myself, and I think some of the present members do too, is a short work that Mr. Douglas Lilburn, a first- rate contemporary composer who happens to be a New Zealander, has said he could write for us if we are really keen enough. I hope we will be.

But, as I say, we need a few more singers. Would any students who have the time and the will, sign a sheet which will be put on the main notice board, stating first and second preference as regards times. And then, would they watch for a notice and make a point of coming to the next meeting, whenever the club decides to hold it?—Yours, etc., Antony Alpers.

Student, paid Tuesday, broke Friday, would like to meet student, paid Friday, broke Tuesday.
