RECORDING MUSIC.

The following represents bar 16 from Chopin's Nocturne in Eb, Op. 9, No. a (ia-8 time). In this example the paper has been set to run Blower, and so the bars occupy a larger space.

��KEGAL.

���In 1886 Mr. H. H. Muir took out a patent for recording music, the principle of which was practically the same as that of Herr Fohr. [T.L.S,]

REDEMPTION, THE. A Sacred Trilogy, written and composed by Charles Gounod. First performed at the Birmingham Festival, Aug. 30, 1882, under the composer's direction. [M.]

BEDHEAD, RICHARD, born March i, 1820, at Harrow, was a chorister at Magdalen College, Oxford, 1829-36, having received his musical education there from Walter Vicary, the organist. He was organist at Old Margaret Chapel (now All Saints' Church), Margaret Street, in 1 839-64, since which he has been, and still is, organist at St. Mary Magdalene, Paddington. His works are almost exclusively written or compiled for use in the Church of England service, viz.

Morning and Evening Service/ 1843, Music for the Office of the Holy Communion/ 1853 ; * my people/ anthem for Good Friday ; * Church Melodies, a collection of short pieces and Six Sacred Songs/ 1858; 'The Celebrant's Office Book/ 1863; 'Ancient Hymn Melodies, Book of Common Prayer with Ritual music, Canticles at Matins and Evensong, pointed as they are to be sung in churches and adapted to the Ancient Psalm Chants, and Parish Tune Book and Ap- pendix/ 1865 ; 'The Universal Organist, a Col- lection of Short Classical and Modern Pieces/ 1866-81; 'Litany with latter part of Com- mination Service, Music to the Divine Liturgy during the Gradual, Offertorium and Communion, arranged for use throughout the year/ 1874; Festival Hymns for All Saints and St. Mary Magdalene Days, Hymns for Holy Seasons, Anthems, etc. [A.C.]

REGAL. This name describes a variety of organ (not differentiated by size alone, as is- implied in vol. iii. p. 93), which is especially interesting as being in some ways the prototype of the modern harmonium. It consists of a single row of beating ' reeds, the pipes of which are in some instances so small as hardly to cover the reeds. A fine specimen is in the possession of the Brussels Conservatoire, and was lent to the Inventions Exhibition in 1885. The name ' bible regal ' is not a synonym, but the title of another variety, the peculiarity of which consists in its being arranged to fold in two, on a similar principle to that on which leather backgammon boards are made. The bellows are covered with leather, so that when the instrument is folded, it presents the appearance of a large book. Line II of article, for Roll read Voll. For further particulars the reader is referred to Mr. A. J. Hipkins's ' Musical Instruments ' (A. and C, Black, 1887), where both instruments are figured.
