“A very large audience attended the first of the Sunday evening concerts at Irving Hall last night. Mr. Castle rendered ‘Sleep well, sweet angel,’ by Franz Abt, in a far different style from his ordinary standard in the concert hall. He did full justice to this exquisite little gem. Miss Kate McDonald and Mr. Campbell sang as might be expected from such artists, with taste and feeling. Miss Matilda Toedt appeared for the first time this season. The fair violinist seems not to have deteriorated in practice or power in playing since she appeared in this hall at the close of the last season.
Although the heat of the weather last night interfered materially with the violin, yet her execution of one of De Beriot’s fantasies was excellent.”
“The first sacred concert of the season at Irving Hall took place last evening. Miss Kate McDonald, Mlle. Matilda Toedt (violinist), Mr. William Castle, and Mr. S.C. Campbell acquitted themselves as usual, happily. The duets of the tenor and baritone—Messrs. Castle and Campbell—were especially well rendered. The fair violinist was encored.”
