Among portraits of the master, the bust executed by Boehm, and exhibited at the Grosvenor Gallery in 1886, will have great interest for English people, as Liszt sat for it during his visit to Sydenham in the same year. Plaster casts of this bust have since been issued by Novellos. The head of Liszt upon his death-bed has been successfully represented in a plaster cast by Messrs. Weissbrod & Schnappauf of Bayreuth. On pp. 149 and 219 of Janka Wohl's volume a detailed account and list of portraits and paintings may be found.

LITOLFF, H. C. Add that his opera 'Les Templiers' was produced at Brussels in January, 1886.

LIVERPOOL MUSICAL FESTIVALS. No festival has been held since 1874. Add that Sir Julius Benedict was succeeded as conductor of the Liverpool Philharmonic Society in 1880 by Herr Max Bruch, since whose retirement in 1882 the post has been filled by Mr. Charles Hallé.

LLOYD, Charles Harford, born Oct. 16, 1849, at Thornbury, Gloucestershire, son of Edmund Lloyd, a solicitor, was educated at Thornbury Grammar School and Rossall School. From the latter he went to Magdalen Hall (now Hertford College), Oxford, in Oct. 1868 as the holder of an open classical scholarship. He graduated Mus.B. 1871, B.A. 1872, M.A. 1875, taking a second class in the Final Theological School. While an undergraduate he was instrumental in establishing the Oxford University Musical Club, and was elected its first president. This society (see vol. iv. p. 206) has done a great deal for the advancement of classical music in the University. It still flourishes, and up to June 1887 over 380 performances of chamber music had been given. Mr. Lloyd was appointed organist of Gloucester Cathedral in June 1876 as successor to Dr. S. S. Wesley. In this capacity he conducted the Festivals of the Three Choirs in 1877 and 1880. In Sept. 1882 he succeeded Dr. C. W. Corfe as organist of Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford, and in the same year became conductor of the Choral Society in succession to Mr. Parratt. His works, though few in number, have obtained well-deserved success. His themes are original and beautiful, and their treatment shows much experience and knowledge of effect. His part-writing is excellent, and in the structure of his compositions he displays a moderation and self-restraint which
