WORCESTER GLEE CLUB
The Worcester Glee Club on Wednesday night had “an evening with Sir Arthur Sullivan”. The programme consisted entirely of selections from the works of that distinguished composer. There was a large attendance, and members expressed their delight with the selection of the music (for which the Musical Director, Mr. A Quarterman, was responsible).
According to a view of some of the Worcester Guardians the feelings of the inmates of the workhouse this Christmas are to be like those of Nanki Poo – “modified rapture.” Times are not such that the inmates may be allowed full fare, and the whole-hearted jollification which is supposed to follow it (some of us may doubt whether a jolly feeling does follow a liberal Christmas fare) disgruntled people would say that what is most likely to follow is a “thick head”
The problem of the Guardians, how to give the inmates “a merry Christmas” on a modified scale. They might take a hint from the Master of Droitwich Workhouse…..”…the puddings must lack sultanas”
