Edinburgh Orchestral Festival: Reid Concert 1871

Monday, February 13, 1871

Principal Artistes

Madame Lemmens-Sherrington - soprano
[Miss Eleanor Armstrong - soprano]
Herr Stockhausen - baritone
Madame Norman-Neruda - violin

Mr Charles Hallé - solo pianist and conductor


The printed programme gave the name of Madame Lemmens-Sherrington but the review of the concert published in the report of the concert published in "The Musical Times" March 1, 1971, p. 24, gives the name of Miss Eleanor Armstrong as the vocalist and there is no mention of Madame Lemmens-Sherrington.   This would imply that Madame Lemmens-Sherrington did not appear at this concert.

Programme Notes: 

There is no indication of a change of performer in the printed programme but from the review published in"The Musical Times" March 1, 1971, p. 24, it is clear that Madame Lemmens-Sherrington was indisposed and her place was taken by local soprano, Miss Eleanor Armstrong.
