The musical part of the Jubilee—all things considered,—was noble and dignified. The great chorus, the great orchestra, the great organ, the great drum, and the great singer, Parepa Rosa, with her wonderful, never-to-be- forgotten rendering of the Inflammatus, may seem, at this distance of time and development of musical taste, as something only “great” to laugh at. Yet, when a whole serious-minded community like that of Boston “ took stock ” in it, and the spirit of the idea was carried out happily, is it not perhaps rash to mock at it ? Have not the results been far-reaching, doing their work in this world of evolution just as the chromo prepares the way for high art? Who can say that a large share of Boston’s musical reputation was not earned by the Jubilees?
