The annual singing festival of the Congregational Churches 01 Wern, Penycae, Maenygroes, Nanternis, Brynrhiwgaled, and Toii-yu, New Quay, was held at lbwyn Chapel last Friday. The con- ductor for this year was Mr. John Pliiiipps, Port i'albot, who is well-known as the suc- cessful leader of the famous Port Talbot Male Voice Party. This was the second year in succession for Mr. Philipps to con- duct this singing festival, and he has each time proved himself to be the right man in the right place. The great feature or this year's programme was the part taken by the (hildn,rL \111k'Cf.' MUKrmtr "1> -j "b.&b "r' "J thing in the history of the festivals. The con- ductor had the children completely in his own hands, and their singing was most ex- cellent. The morning service will not be forgotten for many years by the large con- gregation present. The Rev. W. Griffiths, Maenygroes, presided in the morning, and did his work with his usual ability. The Rev. D. M. Davies, catechised the children in the Life of Christ. The children went through their task in a capital manner. The following was the morning's programme:— "Cenwcli delyn Seion/' "Yr Oen difai, "Pob llwyth ac iaith," "Y Messiah addawedig," "Ymdeitbgan y Cristion," "Cor Caersalem." In the aiternoon the place was crowded bc- fOie 2 o'clock, when Mr. S. Thomas, Synod- ganol, presided. The following programme was gone through"Olivet," "Carisle," "Darwdl," "Prague," "Boreu Hyfryd," "Holstein." "St. Aelred," "Tydfil," and the anthem Mor hawddgar yw y bebyll" (W. 1'. Samuel).

While singing the anthem, the coliductei- was quite overcome. When the choir and congregation joined in the singing the effect was most impressive. "Afon awen" was repeated many times. The singing festival of 190G at Towyn, New Quay, will be remembered for many years as a most remarkable festival. During the meetings the following papers were read:— "Gwasanaeth offerynau cerdd yn nglyn a chaniadaeth y Cvssegr," by Mr. T. G. Thomas, Bryn, and "Perthynas. caniadaeth y Cys&egr ag addoliad," by Mr. Evan Thomas, Bwlchcefn. Short addresses were also delivered by the TIevs. J. M. Prvtherch W. Griffiths, W. Jones, E. J. Edwards, and D. M. Davies, and Mr. W. Thomas, Bryn- arfor. A vote of thanks was proposed' to all those who had been kind enough to serve at the tables by the Rev. Rev. D.
