' And thou, sweet Music, Dancing ' s only life, The Ear ' s sole happiness, the Air ' s best speech; Lodestone of jellozvship, charming-rod of strife. The soft mind ' s Paradise, the sick mind ' s leech; With thine own tongue, thou trees and stones canst teach, That when the Air doth dance her finest measure, Then art thou horn, the gods ' and men ' s sweet pleasure. " — Sir John Davies. ' The lost Art, that is perhaps nearest of all arts to eternity — The subtle art of Listening. " — William Bi tler Yeats. Nostra Alma Mater George W. Brown President of the Board of Trustees. In Dedicating This Book TO Mr. ( eurge W. 25raum We S[lic OJlaBH of 1923 wish to express something of the peculiar af- fection we hold for him. Coming to us as President during our Senior year, he has made us feel that we have a claim on him such as no other class could have. The New England Conservator}- of Music has found in him a valued and trusted adviser and a wise and sympathetic friend. In tribute to him we quote the immortal poet : " Constant as tlie nortliern star, Of whose iriie-fix ' d and resting quality Tliere is no lellow in the firmament. " — Shakespeare. George W. Chadwick Director George IV. Chadwick Director EORGE WHITEFIELD CHADVVICK, eminent composer, organist, con- ductor and educator, was born in Lowell, Massachusetts, November 13, 1854. His organ-playing began at the age of fifteen. Attempts at compo- sition followed while he was still at school, but, despite this attention to music, he finished his course at the Lawrence High School, and for three years served as a clerk in his father ' s insurance office. During this time, with characteristic persever- ance, he laid the foundation for his professional career by attending the Conservatory in 1872 as a student, studying Theory with Dudley Buck and organ under George E. Whiting. He had now written two overtures for small orchestral and several piano trios. In 1876 he embraced an opportunity to teach pianoforte and harmony at Olivet College, Michigan, whence he went abroad to continue his studies at Leipzig and Munich (1877-79) under such masters as Jadassohn, Reinecke and Rhein- berger, where he composed continuously and won marked distinction. At Leipzig, he had two string quartets and an overture on the theme of " Rip Van Winkle " performed at the yearly examination. The latter piece made a profound impression on the European musicians who heard it. Their commendation was reported in Boston, and in December, 1879, the overture was given its first American presenta- tion in Boston at a concert of the Harvard Musical Association. LIpon his return to Boston, Mr. Chadwick joined the Faculty of the New England Conservatory of Music in 1881 as a teacher of harmony and composition, and in 1897 he became director, succeeding Mr. Carl Faelton. During his twenty- six years of service as director, the School has grown to be a great University of the Musical Arts. He has not only raised the standard in each department, but has impressed himself especially upon the work in composition and ensemble playing. From his orchestra of eighty members, many of his pupils have gone into orchestras elsewhere, some of them becoming conductors. Few American composers have won such high esteem. His works comprise symphonies, overtures, choral works, chamber music, operas and operettas, and about one hundred songs. Mr. Chad- wick ' s compositions are played by Symphony Orchestras perhaps more frequently than those of an ' other American composer, and he has served as guest-conductor with all the larger orchestras throughout the country. He is a representative of the Art of Music in the Academy of Arts and Letters, and such distinguished musicians as Frederick S. Converse, Wallace Goodrich, Henry Hadley, Dr. Horatio Parker, and Arthur Whiting have studied under him. He was awarded the Honorary Degree of Master of Arts by Yale in 1897, and LL.D. by Tufts College in 1905. Mr. Chadwick ' s genius has been to us a constant inspiration, while his kindly interest in each one of us and conscientious criticism of our progress have proved the surest guide to the perfection of our art. In expressing true loyalty and affec- tion, the Class of Nineteen Twenty-three unanimously subscribes itself. " His heart and hand both open and both free, For what he has he gives, what thinks he shows. " — Sh. kespeare. Wallace Goodrich Dean of the Faculty WALLACE GOODRICH, endwwed with solid musicianship as organist and conductor, combined with the wisdom and tact required to win and held popular appreciation, was born in Newton, Massachusetts, May 27, 187L His piancj study began while in sclujol. At the age of fifteen his great talent and interest concentrated in the organ and, after three years ' training under Ah. Dunham, he became organist in the Eliot Church in Newton and gave frequent recitals. Having had preliminary instruction in composition with Cieorge W. Chadwick, in 1894 Mr. Goodrich continued his education at the Royal Academy, Munich, under Rheinberger and Abel, and in 1895 won a medal and gave a choral work with orchestra. He was in Paris with Widor (1895-96), where he made a study of the remarkable development of French organ music, and in 1896-97 was a coach and ballet-conductor at the Leipzig Stadt-Theater. Since 1897 he has taught Organ at the New England Conservatory of Music, where in 1905-06 he was acting-director, and since 1907 Dean of the Faculty. In addition to his manifold responsibilities, Mr. Goodrich has acted as organist for the Boston Symphony Orchestra (1897-1909), appearing several times as soloist, and at Trinity Church (1902-09). He has been equally active as conductor, organ- izing the Choral . rt Society in 1902, and leading it till 1908, having charge of the Cecilia Society (1907-10), and since 1919 conducting the orchestral concerts in Jordan Hall. I " rom the inception of the Boston Opera Company in 1909, he was one of the regular conductors, continuing till the company disbanded in 1912. IJcsidcs his sympathy with the 1 ' rench school ol organ playing, he is inteiested in all problems of church music, and has helped to solve them by serving on the Committee for the Rc ision of the Episcopal H ' mnal in 1918-19. He is secretary of the Joint Commission on Church Music. The uniformly high quality of his work has been coupled with a surprising uniformity of success. He has published educational works for the organ and has written " The Organ in France, " 1917, and several essays on organ pla ing and Gregorian Music. Mr. Goodrich has, we feel, the keenest interest in the welfare of each one of us. Nothing could gi e us more courage to face our life ' s problems than to know that we have one of the leading American musicians as oUr teacher, adviser and friend. In recognition of his noble and sympathetic assistance, we extend o w heartfelt appreciation. " ... iliai tower ol " strength W ' liich stood four ; qua re to all the u iiuls that blew.

" — Shakfspeari ' . 60 THE NEUME 1923 Dramatic Department THV. Dramatic Deparimeiu of ilie New Kngland Conservatory is under ihe direction of Clayton D. Gilbert. Many of the former pupils from this department are now holding positions as artists or instructors in opera, drama, musical comedy and pictures. Besides the regular dramatic students who study for opera or drama, many of the musical students take some work along this line to help give them better poise, train their imagination, and make them more responsive. .-Ml graduates of the Conservatory are required to have one year ' s work in Stage Deportment under Mr. Gilbert, and many of the former musical students, realizing the benefits of such a course, are introducing Stage Deportment in diflferent schools throughout the country. At the Dramatic Recitals in the Conservatory, Mr. Gilbert has not only pro- duced the works of standard and classical authors, but has made a point to bring out many new plays, pantomimes, ballets and operas for the first time in this country, and often for the first time on any stage. The program below is an example of frequent recitals offered at the Conserva- tory under the direction of the Dramatic Department. PROGRAMME !• The FaR-Aw.AY Princess a slor in one scene by Herm. nn Sudermans ' " For what makes us liappy after all . ' Any kind of a dream, a fancy, a wish unfulfilled, a sorrow that we coddle, some nothing which suddenly becomes everything to us. " — Sudermann ScE.NE — At an inn. situated aho e a watering place in . ustria. II. — Act II OF " The Dover Road " in ihrcx .Vis by a. a. Mh.nk " This play is a w himsey based upon an impracticability. Tliere is a fairy god-father, a Mr. Latimer, who makes it his business to dissuade eloping couples, or at least, give them time to think it over before they take the final leap. His method is to waylay them, entice them into his home, force them to see each other with the glamor off (unshaven and afflicted with a cold in the head, to be explicit) and return them unspotted to their respective families. " Scene — Reception room of Mr. Latimer ' s house. III. — Balcony Scene from " Romeo and J ULIET Bv Wll.l.IAM SnAKt;SPKA-E .SetNh — The Capulets " Garden IW- — " The Love of Babette " .

In the little town of P(jnt . en. tlure was a wonderful statue. The tradition was that it came from (Ireece. but the history of its being brought to Brittany was shrouded in mystery. .According to the legend, should the statue be kissed on Midsummer ' s eye by a maiden who truly loved it. it would become alive, and should the kiss be returned the maiden would turn to stone.

And running this old world is not As easy as it seems. As Seniors we are prone to think Our wisdom is complete. We ' ve but to ask — the world will lay Its trophies at our feet. But schooldays done and work begun, We learn to our regret The College of hlxperience We have not mastered yet. Ambition beckons on to us, And eagerly we press Toward a distant, gleaming goal. The Temple of Success. It seems a pleasant journey at The dawning of Life ' s da}-; But, as we stumble on, it grows A long and weary way. The world has garlands and applause At graduating time. But may forget us the next day When we begin to climb. Life is a battle, where each one Must seek and hold his own: He who would rise above the crowd Must scale the heights alone. This is the rule of Life today, As it has ever been: The world bestows its smile on those Who have the strength to win. Beneath all outward semblances It looks for merit true; It little cares how much you know, But asks: " What can you do. ' " When you have left your College halls You ' re barely at the start, For Wisdom ' s height is infinite. And long the ways of Art. You ' ll find that in the school of Life Acts count for more than dreams; And running this old world is not As easv as it seems. After Word IN spite of our many difficulties, the Management of the 1923 Year Book have a great deal to be thankful for. To all those who, by word or deed, have made our task easier, we whh to ma ke grateful acknowledg- ment. The Editors give one of the first votes of grati- tude to all who helped to make the 1923 Year Book a success. Then to our Photographer, Carl J. Horner, we are very grateful for the responsibilities that he has so willingly taken from our inexperienced hands. And to our Printers, Goodman Brothers, Inc., we are indebted for their helpful co-operation and sugges- tions. They have aided very materially in the shaping up of our ideas and ideals into a presentable finished production. But to the Conservatory at Large, the Editors make the final and most deep-felt bow of acknowledgment. We want you to know how much we appreciate your interest, your aid, and as a crowning virtue, your subscription to The Xei ' me 1923 Year Book. Our advertisers have helped us. Are you going to help them? Books Every Musician Should Own Music : an Art and a Language By Walter R.

ENDORSEMENT. The authiir . . . carries his guide to musical under- standing (for such may the book be truthfully called) frcitn the very beginning of the development of present- day music, on through folk song, polyphonic music, the rondo, sonata, classic structure, romantic music, priigram music, the modem French school, and the national schools, summarizing all in a chapter on the trind of Twentieth-century music. — Musical Monitor. Critical and Historical Essays By Edward MacDowell Price $1.50 ■The volume represents those of his Columbia lec- tures to which he had given permanent shape, and which have a unique value, owing to the fact of the point of view from which they were conceived. A t ne-poet of rare imaginative gifts, a master of in- spirational processes in music, MacDowell entered into the spirit in which the composers, both of the earlier and later periods conceived their works — his lectures have an undeniable value to musician and student.
