THE MADRIGAL SOCIETY.
WITH waning daylight the Madrigalians begin to congregate. Fashion- able migrations may vary, but the times and seasons of these veteran harmonists know no change. Two months they allow for rural sports— we believe principally angling ; the remaining ten they are found in London.
Thursday night was the first meeting of the Madrigalian season ; Sir JOHN ROGERS in the chair. Among the professional members and visiters present, were Miss TIIBLE, Hewitt/is, HAWES, Professor TAYLOR, and Mr. ELLIOT ; and the selection for the evening comprised the following pieces—
