The members of the Meltham choral society met, for their usual monthly practice, on Monday evening, in the National School Room, Meltham Mills. Selections from Handel's oratorio, the "Messiah," were performed very creditably, Mr. Joe Perkin conducting. A new organ has lately been placed in the school, as the expense of Chas. Brook, jun., Esq., and on this occasion it was brought into requisition, and proved of great service, Mr. R. Turton, organist of St. James's Church, performing. It is a rich-toned and sweet instrument, and will prove a valuable aid to the Choral Society.
