LLANDOVERY. To the Editor of THE JOURNAL. SIR, Kindly allow me to ask through your columns what has become of our adult choir ? Have we heard the last of it ? I hope not yet, the absence of any signs of preparation on their part for the Llandilo eisteddfod either this year or last, seems to point in that direction. Have they lost all their musical courage in the face of the fact that a few good choirs are likely to compete? Their success there a few years ago should be a sufficient incentive to urge them on to a renewed effort. Where, too, are our juvenile choirs Have their recent successes so satisfied them that they have decided to rest on their oars for some time to come ? If that is so, they must be lacking surely in ambition. Each triumph should fire them with unyielding determination to bear aloft inscribed on their banner the word, excelsior." Perhaps some of your singers will have a word to say on the subject. Whatever it may be, no harm can be done by their leaving it out boldly. And here let me add a suggestion for the. eisteddfod committee. Might not the town make the annual eisteddfod famous by offering, say a prize of £100 for a first class military band contest ? If properly worked, this might tempt the famous Yorkshire and Lancashire as well as the South Wales bands (regular, militia, volunteers, and works) to compete. It would be a grand holiday for many of them at the holiday time, and they would have the chance of killing two birds with one stone. "Music moves us, and we know not why We feel the tears, but cannot trace the source." Is it the language of some other state Yours, &c. TENOR.
