Francesco Lamperti, the great Italian teacher of singing, has died at the age of eighty or more. The maestro caught cold on the Friday, and although he complained of feeling unwell took his class as usual on Saturday morning. On Sunday he was found dead in his bed—having died in his sleep—a peaceful end to a long career. We published in our number for July last an interesting account by Mr. F. W. Farrington of a course of study under the old maestro. Lamperti's son, G. B., still teaches at Dresden.
