Sacred Music – Original Temple To Mozart

HELENSBURGH NEWS THURSDAY 18 MARCH 1886

SHANDON – THE MUSIC OF THE MASS

On Friday last, Mr Thomas Brash, Helensburgh, delivered a lecture on this subject.

He sketched the interesting and progressive history of the music of the ancient Church of Rome, tracing its origin in the fragments of the old Jewish service of the Temple, and in the subsequent parts of his address Mr Brash devoted himself to the consideration of the works of Haydn, Mozart, and other eminent composers.

A choir illustrated several of the ‘masses’ referred to by Mr Brash in his lecture, and at the conclusion he strongly urged the necessity of improving the style of Church music.

The lecture was a splendid intellectual and musical treat, and was highly appreciated by those who were present.
