A concert was given on Monday evening, at the Carlile Institute, Meltham, by the Lockwood Church Choir. The choir sang the following glees and anthems very nicely :— "When hands meet," "On the banks of Allan Water," "You stole my heart," "Come unto Him," and "Now by days." Songs were given as follows :— "My sweetheart when a boy," Mr. Haigh ; "The Kerry dance," Miss Crossley ; "Ora pro nobis," Miss Pollitt ; "Tar's farewell," Mr. Earnshaw ; "The wicket gate," Miss K. Livesey ; "The last milestone," Miss Booth ; "Killarney," Miss Kaye ; "Mignonette," Dr. Baldwin ; and "Green leaves," Mr. Walker. Some of these were well rendered, and were encored. Misses Kaye and Booth gave the duet "Tell me where fairies dwell" very beautifully, and received an encore. Misses Livesey and Pollitt also sang the duet "Over the hawthorn hedge" prettily. Mr. Liversedge's violin solo, "Cloches de Corneville," was well executed. Mr. J. Roberts conducted, and Mr. W. Brooke was the accompanist. The room was crowded, and the concert, which on the whole was very enjoyable, closed with the National Anthem.
