The book, which is published at sixpence a copy, contains graded songs, rounds and exercises in staff notation, tonic sol-fa and numerals, with music1 theory. What makes the Songster all the more acceptable is the fact that many of the; vocal numbers such as "The Tale of the, Bell Birds," "The Flying Gang," " Song of the. Drover" etc., wear a distinctly polonial iiavor. To use a hackneyed expression,,.the little work should fill a long^experi enced gap. ... , > ,
