The performance of many of the societies was much injured by those who attempted to sing solo parts, but who were not competent to do the work. Out of tune, and sinking the pitch, were faults common to quite a number of the solo singers. The chorus was, in the poorest instances, tolerable; but it was not so with the solo singers, who were not, in all cases, better than we have heard heretofore, under circumstances where little was expected, and nothing realized. It is comparatively easy to have a chorus well done, but there are very few singers who have carried vocal cultivation so far as to be able to sing a solo part, or a part in a trio or quartet, well enough to save the hearer from absolute pain.
