Review: New-Yorker Musik-Zeitung, 11 July 1868, 779.

On July 5th a concert took place at the St. Paul Apostle church under the direction of choral conductor and organist E. Eberhard. The following program was performed:

Stadler: “Ecce Sacerdes” (arranged for the orchestra by Eberhard)

Reitziger: “The virgin’s prayer,” trio for violin, cello and organ (Listeman, Hennig, Eberhard)

Beethoven: Mass in C, Kyrie, Gloria, Credo

Haydn: “Laetatus Sum” (arranged for the orchestra by Eberhard)

Emmerich: “Laudate Dominum” (arranged for the orchestra by Eberhard)

Mozart: Jupiter Symphony, first movement

The Beethoven mass was performed for the first time in this arrangement and was executed rather well.

Miss Eugenie Kavannagh sang the soprano solos and she deserves recognition for her skillful performance. “Except for the alto Miss Gallier, the other performers did not raise above the level of the ordinary.” The orchestra played satisfactorily under Eberhard’s direction.

Review: Dwight's Journal of Music, 18 July 1868, 280.

“…The following programme (says the Weekly Review) of a concert by the Choir of the Church of St. Paul the Apostle, given last Sunday, very eloquently testifies to the taste and culture of the choir itself, and its able leader, Mr. E. Eberhard.”
