GRAND CONCERT AT FERNDALE. On Thursday evening the Ferndale Male Vciee Party held tneir annual concert at the Tudor Hall. As usual, the spacious hall was packed, with a most orderly and aprpeciative audiejico. The Rev D. G. Williams was a very gpnis.1 chairman, and kept everything in exceil-nt. order. The programme was of a first cuss merit, as might naturally have been expected from such t galaxy of artistes asâSoprano, Miss Maggie Mills, Pontypridd; contralto, Madame Kate Morgan Llewellyn, Dowlais; tenors,Messrs Gwynalaw, Howell Davies, (Telorydd Orky), and R. C. Davies; baritone, Mr J. Glyntewi Jones; bass, Mr A. Matthews; pianist, Mr T. D. Edwards, Hopkinstown. The star of the even, ing was undoubtedly Madamø Kate Morgan- Llewellyn, who was in grand form, every song she rendered being vociferously encored. Her item were "Alone on the raft" (Roding),"Cymru Fydd" (Richards), and "Glory to Thee, my God" (Gounod). Miss Mills sang "Holy Light," "Or- pheus and his Lute," and "Carmencita," which were highly appreciated and well encored. Gwynalaw, as usual, was at his best, and con- tributed "0 fy hen Gymraeg" (D. Emlyn Evans) as few can, while "Excelsior" by Alaw and Glyn- tewi Jones fairly brought down the house; as also did "From the Home of the Eagle" (Dr Parry) by Miss Mills and Gwynalaw. Mr J. Glyntewi Jones, the veteran, in addition to another duet with Mr R. C. Davies, "Y Ddau Frython" (Alaw Manod), sang "Y Teithiwr a'1 Gi" (Tafonwy Mills), and proved that. his voice is as good, if not better, than ever. The other items were "Elen Twyn" (R. S. Hughes) and "How vain is Man," by Mr Howell Davies;" "Hoff Wlad fy Ngenedigaeth" (Dr Parry) by Mr R C. Davies; "Y Dymestl" (R. S. Hughes) and "Bill the Bos'un" (Jude) by Mr A. Matthews, which were quite, as well received. The chief feature of the concert, however, was the singing of the party. They are practising hard for the National at Newport, and we can safely say that if they sing as well at Newport as they did at < he concert, they will be very hard to beat. Tlv1 voices were splendidly balanced, while the ton" and tunc were beautiful. They contributed "Ah! were I on yonder plain" (Mendelsshon): "Llewelyn ein Llyw Olaf' (Tom Price), the two test pieces at Newport, and "Comrades in Arms" (Adams). They were conducted by Mr Gwilym Jones, iheir talented leader, who was received with a perfect storm of applause. The well known quartette, "Good Evening" (Seymour Swith) by Miss Mills, Madame Kate Morgan- Llewelyn, Gwynalaw ,and J. Glyntewi Jones, brought to close one of the most successful and enjoyable concerts thai have ever been held at Ferndale,
