Evetide. By S. Jacoby. (Howard and Co.)—This piece, though not

embodying much originality, is somewhat effective. We notice that the first bar is very like Mendelssoha's "Oh, for the wings," and in many other instances we are reminded of the same composer. The to the second eight bars of the theme is too fragmen- tary, and the consecutive fifths on page 4, bar 4, would have anything but a pleasing effect. Those who like the cantabile style will doubtless appreciate the composition.
