The Lion Flag of England. By Harry Mackenzie. (C. Boosey.)—

This is a very.fair specimen of a patriotic song, spirited in style, and creditably composed in accordance with the words. A more careful revision would have been advantageous,—for instance, on page 2, bar 4, where the sharp prefixed to the F in the vocal part is faulty, and the first bass note in line 3 should be G, instead of D. The superfluous fiats ozt this page after the key has been altered rather confuse than assist the singer and the accompanyist.
