Historical Concerts.

Professor Paine will deliver his first lecture this evening, in Sever 11. The course of ten lectures which he proposes to give will take the form of historical concets, the lecture taking up a part of the time, and the soloists rendering selections illustrating the lecture at intervals during the evening. This evening the church music of the Flemish and Italian schools of the 15th and 16th centuries, and the music of the Troubadors, Popular Airs, Madrigals, etc., of the middle ages, will be the topics of the lecture. The remaining lectures will treat of the Opera, the Oratoric, and the Cantata from the 17th century to the present day; also instrumental music from the 16th century to the present day.
