Appleton Chapel was filled to over-flowing yesterday afternoon when Garret's Thanksgiving Cantata was given by the united choirs of St. Paul's Church and Harvard University. Prof-Peabody opened the services by reading the Thanksgiving proclamation of the Governor. After a prayer and the reading of a Psalm the Cantata was begun and carried through without intermission, the congregation joining in the hymns.
The bass solo of the Cantata was sung by Mr. Richardson, of St. Paul's Church, while the soprano parts were sung by Arthur Greene, of St. Paul's, and Willie McDonald, of Appleton Chapel. The beautiful trio of the Cantata was sung by Messrs Greene, Wilcox and Chipman.
