“Signor Severini and Mr. Pease brought their succession of agreeable Monday Morning Concerts to a bright conclusion with their last. These pleasant entertainments have had a fair attendance, and they have served to make familiar to intelligent audiences the talent of an extremely pleasing tenor, and to give a deal of profitable practice to a hitherto recognized and always clever pianist. Signor Severini—who, like Madame Parepa, can sing in a little babel of tongues—has made his way unostentatiously. His voice is clear, although light, and has been most faithful to those limited flights which he has attempted. Mr. Pease has displayed his ambition as a composer, and has not failed to exhibit some tokens of talent for that higher position. His song ‘Il Sospino’ is quite a tasteful work. An entertainment which these two gentlemen will give to-day at 3 o’clock, in the Steinway Music-room, in aid of the Ladies’ Southern Relief Association, may be looked upon, we suppose, as a speicies of P.S. or appendix to the regular series.”
