A delightful programme by the Hongkong Philharmonic Society proved a distinct success at the Theatre Royal on Saturday night. Mr. S. Collett's baton secured some altogether able renderings of English songs. The performers gave delight in the Morris Dance and the Shepards' Dance from Edward German's Henry VIII. The chorus opened with Drinkwater's Song of Our Fathers. This they improved by an unaccompanied rendering of Mary Coleridge's Witch. Other items by the chorus were Moonlight (Eaton Fanning), Chough and the Crow (Sir Henry Bishop), and Tennyson's Revenge (C. V. Standford). The Society is giving a repeat performance at the Star Theatre on Thursday night.
