    CAMBRIDGE INDEPENDENT PRESS: Ely - Concert - We understand that on Thursday evening next, a concert of vocal and instrumental music will be held at the Shire-hall, Ely, for the benefit of Mrs Macrow, widow of R Macrow, one of the lay clerks of Ely cathedral. Under the circumstances, we have no doubt but that the hall will be crowded; espcially as several eminent artistes are engaged, and others have liberally volunteered their services. Among others, Professor Walmisley, and the Cambridge Choirs; Messrs. Well and Large, of Cambridge; and Miss Taylor, of the Royal Academy, will be one of the vocalists.

    CAMBRIDGE CHRONICLE: We are glad to be able state that the concert on Thursday last, in the Shire Hall, was exceedingly well attended; and many of the clergy and gentry who were prevented by engagements and other circumstances took tickets. It is a matter of much satisfaction to know this, as the proceeds of the concert will go to assist the widow of the late Mr. R. Macrow and her family. Mr. Macrow was one of the lay-clerks of the Cathedral, and was cut off in the spring of life. Professor Walmisley, of Cambridge, kindly volunteered his services to preside at the piano-forte, and a splendid treat it was to hear him; his power of execution and taste were exquisite. Miss Taylor, from the Royal Academy of music; Mr. Wells, on the flute; and Mr. Large, with the cornet-a-piston,delighted the audience. Messrs. Cooper, Millar, Machin, Jackman, Barraclough, Eastes, and even the boys performed their respective parts most admirably, and elicited repeated plaudits. We never remember a concert of the same high caste before at Ely, and a full house fully appreciated a treat in every respect well-arranged, and performed in a masterly way.
