It was evident on Wednesday night that the townspeople Were not lacking in interest and support of the concerts, for there was a large 1 gathering present the first evening. The artistes were: Contralto, Miss Mary John, Caerphilly (pupil of Madame Clara Novello ~avies); soprano, Madame Maud Loveless, i'ontypool (winner National Eisteddfod, augor, 1902); bass, Mr. Godfrey Price (the popular baritone), Tylorstown; tenor, Mr, W. E. Carston, Cardiff (Gold "tedallist, International Eisteddfod, and Silver Medallist, Bristol, 1903); accom- panist, Mr, W. J. Davies, Brynbedw, tylorstown, A private orchestra, under the conductorship of Mr. 0. Haydn ^Unter, was in attendance. The concert On Wednesday evening was ably presided over by Councillor David Smith, Tylors- town. On Thursday, the chair was occu- pied by Mr. Ivor Davies, Ferndale. The choruses were beautifully rendered and was a clear proof of the very able manner the choir had been trained. The solos were most artistically rendered by the different artistes. This is the first visit of Mr. Carston to the district, but he has made a name for himself, and undoubtedly wo shall hear of him among us again in hie near future. Miss Mary John has already won a name for serself in the dis- trict not long ago she sang at Tylors- town in connection with the Welsh Wes- *eyan concert. Madame Maud Loveless is old favourite in the place, and need- less to say, maintained her reputation in these Special mention should be made of Mr. Godfrey Price, who acted as one of the principal artistes. Mr. "rice is a member of the choir, and possesses a. rich baritone voice. He did full justice to the work allotted to, him 011 this occasion, and Tylorstown people can feel proud of having among them a • singer of the standard of Mr. Price. This 18 the first oratorio performance in Tylors- town, and to Mr. Tom Evans belongs the UQique distinction of conducting the first Oratorio performances. A work such as that composed by Mozart, entitled Twelfth Mass," is such that many choirs have commenced with a view to perform- ing it; but, alas! have given up in vain, tt is a most difficult piece of work, and We admired the pluck of Mr. Evans in attempting to take it in hand at the commencement, but more so after bring- Ing it to a successful issue. He has been untiring in his efforts in making the oon- rts a success. It was no mean task for nim to take a choir in hand in preparation of the "Twelfth Mass," and we are Pleased to note that his efforts were crowned with success. It can no longer be questioned that there is sufficient talent in Tylorstown to have performances of this kind. The secretary, Mr. Arthur J. Griffiths, is deserving of the highest Praise for having piloted things so well. All the arrangements for the concert were 'eft in his hands, and were admirably carried out. The work of arranging for Concerts of this kind involves a great deal of work. But Mr. Griffiths did all with credit to himself. The proceeds of the concerts were in aid of the chapel funds.
