Example text

Dobell, 1899; reprinted New York: Vienna House, 1974). 58 • MacMillan on Music came to its senses, could think differently from him.... His faith in his own philosophical ideas, his belief in their importance for the regeneration of the universe, would surely be grotesque if it were not so pathetic. His purely musical gift, which has never been equalled among men, he seemed to lay comparatively little stress upon; while he constantly troubled himself, his correspondents, his readers, and his hearers with speculations in philosophy and other subjects for which he had only the most mediocre capacity.

S. Vogt (1861-1926) held important posts that MacMillan himself would later assume: Principal of the Toronto (Royal) Conservatory of Music, 1913-1926; Dean of the Faculty of Music, University of Toronto, 1918-1926; founder (1894) and first conductor of the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir. Man and Music • 35 of some works I included in church services several years later when, having just turned fifteen, I was installed as organist and choirmaster of Knox Church. However, from the first I learned some discrimination — due in no small degree to the influence of my father — and, in the end, the good drove out the bad.

Vogt himself was an organist and the Mendelssohn Choir was partly an outgrowth of his choir at Jarvis Street Baptist Church. At the period I have reached in my narrative, the Mendelssohn Choir was associated with the Chicago Orchestra under Frederick Stock; their annual festivals — the core of Toronto's musical season — were a great inspiration to musiclovers. Having enjoyed regular orchestral fare in Edinburgh and London I felt rather starved for it; although Frank Welsman10 was already building up the Toronto Symphony into a praiseworthy body, and its concerts featured guest artists of international fame, it could not hope to rival the standards of visiting American orchestras.
