OSG00D, Emma Aline, singer, born in Boston about 1852. Early in life she married Dr. Osgood, a physician of her native city. Her first appearance in public was made in Boston, when she was so successful that she was engaged for two years to sing in Canada and the United States. In 1875 she went to England to study oratorio, and made her debut at the Crystal palace in the same year, but did not appear again till 1876, when she accompanied Charles Halle on a provincial tour, and gained great reputation as a vocalist In this year she also won praise as the soprano in Liszt's new oratorio "Saint Elizabeth," and at the Crystal palace sang frequently selections from Wagner's "Tristan and Isolde," and Gounod's classical compositions. In March, 1878, Mrs. Osgood visited her native country, and appeared with acceptance at Theodore Thomas's concerts in New York, at Cincinnati, and in Canada. She returned to England in the autumn of 1878, sang at the Shakespeare memorial festival at Stratford-on-Avon in June, 1879, and at Christmas in Liverpool in Sir Arthur Sullivan's "Light of the World." In 1880 she appeared at the state concert at Buckingham palace, and in August of that year she revisited the United States and made a successful tour. In oratorio many consider that she is unrivalled. Since 1875 she has resided principally in England.
