Llantwit Fardre. It is with pleasure we note the success of our local favourite, Mr. D. Chubb, at the Swansea Eisteddfod, In the quartet competition, sixteen parties appeared, and the tests, (a) Quandam Corpus (Rossini) and (b) Yea, though I walk (Sullivan), were most difficult and exacting, and both had to be sung unaccompanied. Mr. Chubb's party (consisting of Miss Lizzie Hall, Pembrey, Miss Winifred Lewis, Abertridwr, Mr. Harry Lewis, Nelson, and Mr. Chubb, Llantwit Fardre) carried off the prize. The adjudicator, Mr. Rhys Thomas, America, highly eulogised the winning party for quality of voices and purity of tone. The tenor and bass duet, for which there were 22 entries, attracted some excellent singing, the test selections being (a) Y ddau Arwr (W. Davies) and (b) Mighty Jove (Rossini's Barbierde Seville). Mr. Chubb and Mr. Lewis proved the winners. These gentlemen also won the tenor and bass duet competi- tion at last year's eisteddfod at Car- narvon, and have thus constituted an eis- teddfodic record of which they can be justly proud. Altogether, Mr. Chubb has gained eight prizes at the Royal National Eisteddfodau of Wales.
