Oratorio Performances at Tylorstown. On Wednesday and Thursday, March 27th and 28th, two grand performances of the beautiful oratorio, Mozart's Twelfth Mass," were given by the Horeb Welsh Baptist Choral Society (choir of 100 voices), conducted by Mr. Tom Evans, A.C., Tylorstown. The concerts were held under the distinguished patronage of Mr. W. J. Thomas, J.P., Ynyshir; Dr. T. W. Parry, J.P., Ferndale; Dr. T. H. Morris, Tylorstown (chairman of the Glamorgan County Council Education Committee); Councillor Danl. Evans, Ferndale; Mi-. Tom Morgan, grocer, Tylorstown Mr. G.

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.

Daeth deuddeg o bryddestau i law, a chah fod yma gynifer, ni chawn ond gwneydnooiad byr arbob un o honynt. Plentyn yr Anial."—-Er ein bod yn ei enwi yh gyntaf, y mae hwn yn fardd gwirioneddol. Cana yn dyner a naturiol; ond dyg i fewn lawer o bethau nad ydynt yn dal perthynas uniongyrchol a'i deetyn, a gadawa allan bethau ereill y buasid yn disgwyl eu cael mown pryddest ar y Drugareddfa. "Awel Hwyrol."—Ceir yn ei gerdd doraeth o syniadau da; ond ei ddiffyg yntau, yn enwedig yn y rhan gyntaf, yw ytndroi yn ormodol o gylch ei destyn, yn lie bwrw ei hun i fewn i'w galon. "Dan yr Arch."—Y mae yntau yn fardd o gryn deilyngdod. Ond y mae ei arddull yn rhy emynol i ateb ei destyn, ac y mae ynddo duedd crwydro weithiau. Sylwer ar ei ail benill: — Wyf yma yn yr anial maith, Ac ofnau'n ami o dan fy mron Trom a lluddedig yw y daith, Ond ar fy llwybr dros wyneb hon Tyr goleu'r nefyn newydd don." Anhawdd gweled perthynas agos rhwng llinellau fel yna er Drugareddfa. Addolwr ar ei Ddeulin."—Mae'r bryddest hon wedi ei gosod allan yn ddestlus mewn "typewriting," ao yn cynwys llawer o newydd-deb. Hoffwn ei ddull deheuig o drin ei fesitrau. Ond ceir yma ymadroddion anmhriodol, megys:- Ca'dd fy mai a'm drwg eu tywallt arni hi yn ber trugareddfa Ion dod a bri i'r fron," &c. Nid barddonol yw llinellau fel hyn — Cufydd a, haner ydoedd yn ei lied, A dau gufydd a haner yn ei hyd." I'r hanesydd, ac nid i'r bardd, y perthyn rhoddi accounts o'r natur yma. Ond na ddigaloned Addolwr," y mae ynddo elfenau bardd rhagorol. Bezaleel.Gaii fod ei derfynau mor gyfyng, erys yn rhy hir gyda rhai pethau, megys ei ddarluniad o gymeriad Duw, gwneuthuriad y Drugareddfa, &c. Gwisga y bryddest nodwedd rhy draethodol, ac eto ceir ynddi syniadau byw a barddonol yma a thraw. Medda Bezaleel ar ddigon o awen i wneyd gwrhydri. Pechadur."—Y mae hon yn bryddest gref, lawn o dduwinyddiaeth iach, ac addurnir hi gan luaws o syniadau bardd- onol. Nid yw ei barddoniaeth yn beth mor fyw ag eiddo rhai o'i gydymgeiswyr, ao nid yw yn dangos y gwahaniaeth rhwng y Drugareddfa. gysgodol a'r un sylweddol mor glir ag y dymunem. Ceir ganddo hefyd gwyneb dlos," yn lie gwyneb tlws," a'r llythyren "h" yn cael ei chainleoli ddwy neu dair o weithiau. Eto i gyd, y mae hon yn bryddest o gryn deilyngdod. Mab Hedd."—Dyma bryddest arall bron o'r un nodwedd, yn llawn o syniadau wedi eu gosod allan mewn Cymraeg gwell- na'r cyffredin, ac i fesur yn gwisgo gwedd esboniadol. Ond, rywfodd, nid oes yma gymaint o eneiniad ag a ddymunem. Y mae yma farddoniaeth, ond barddoniaoth, sych ydyw, heb tod yn gorfodi calon y dar- llenydd i deimlo ei hun yn cael ei chyffwrdd. "Deigryn Enaid."—Y mae hon yn gerdd hynod o flodeuog; ond nid yw llawer o'r blodau yma, fwy na. blodau cyffredin natur, yn dal i'w dadansoddi. Pan gynygiwn wneyd hyn a hwy, collwn y perarogl a'r tlysni, ac nid oes genym fawr o ddim yn aros. Ymdeithydd.Cana "Ymdeithydd mor naturiol ag yr eheda gwreichionen fyny.

Diodoms."—Y mae hon eto yn gerdd ar y testynyn y wedd y dylid ei gymeryd. Disgyna y bardd ar ei destyn ar unwaith, a dilyna ef yn ffyddlon hyd y diwedd. Ceir yma doraeth o syniadau newyddion a tharawiadol, ao y mae y rhan amlaf o honynt yn bethau byw a newydd, er nad ydynt bob amser yn cael eu trefnu mor rheolaidd ag y gallesid o bosibl. "Un o Lwyth Lefl.Gan nad i ba Iwyth y perthyna, y mae hwn yn fardd gwirioneddol. Cana ar ei destyn o'r dechreu i'r diwedd, a gwel ynddo ryw bethau nad yw ei gydymgeiswyr wedi eu gweled. Er fod amryw o'r pryddestau yn dda, ao yn llawn gwerth y wobr, y mae hon ar gyfrif ei ffyddlondeb i'r testyn, priodoldeb ei chydmariaethau, a'r nerth bywyd sydd yn rhedeg drwyddi, yn rhagori ychydig ai bob un o'r lleill.

A GREAT TRIBUTE TO I JMANNINA 11/ j, c J..

I had very bad ankles for five years, and most dreadful pains in them. T could get very little sleep day and night, and tried almost everything I could get for them; it cost me a good few pounds, and I never got a bit of ease until I used your Ointment. When I first got a pot of it I was afraid to put it on the sores and for several days I would not use it, and the sores were dreadful the pain was in. tense, and I was in agony, so I thought I would put it bn that I could not suffer more than I was suffering, and it. eased the pain at once. So I continued using it for some months before they were healed, but how thankful I was even to get rest and sleep. I had no more pain in them after I used your Ointment; it cost me a good deal, but not half so much as I had spent on them before. I am sure there are hundreds with bad legs would use it if they only kneM about it. It is a great shame you have not got some Agent in Melbourne. By this mail I am sending iPl 10s. for Ointment, and please send me, two bills, one lady. wants el and another person 10s. worth, the small pots. And oblige, yours, &c., Nov. 18,1905.
