Lamperti is Dead

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.
