There being no good counter-tenor, the song “He was despised,” which is generally given to that voice, was assigned to a female contralto, a Miss Masson, who sung it correctly, but without feeling. As it is within the compass of a tenor, Harrison, Knyvett, and others, having sung it, Braham might have taken it, and would have given it all its deeply pathetic expression, which was totally lost. Miss Masson having just before sung “He shall feed his flock,” a simple quiet air, more suited to her powers, need not have had this also allotted to her.
