Alexander Mackenzie in City of Brandon - 1903

from A Musician's Narrative , pages 212-213:

The "Granary of the West" and "Baby" of the cycle had never seen an orchestra; but the recently-raised choir was much too keen about its work to fail. The associate conductor must have had much hard work, since a proportion of the singers had to be taught the time-signatures and elements of music! This rag-time state of matters, though not applying to all its members, might well have discouraged the stoutest heart. The "Prairie Chorus," however, came out of the ordeal with credit to itself and Mr. Frank B. Fenwick, the resident musicians.
