DOWN IN THE SUNLESS RETREATS.
This is one of Moore's " Sacred Melodies." The music to which it is here set is the composition of Oliyer Shaw, bora in 1778. He was a teacher of music, and followed that profession in Providence, K. I., where he died, December 31, 1848. His sacred composi­tions include "Mary's Tears," "Nothing true but Heaven," "Arrayed in Clouds," and " Home of my Soul." A friend writes of him: " He was a man of placid disposition, unob­trusive-manners and truly Christian character, and was warmly devoted to his divine art."
