THE BRIDGEND EISTEDDFOD. Provided no unforeseen contingency hap- pens, the Bridgend Eisteddfod for 1894 promises to be a greater success than ever, and provided also that the weather will be in harmony with the season, the attendance should be a record one. Last year it will be recollected immense interest centered round the preliminary trial of strength between the famous Pontycymmer and Rhondda Male Voice Parties and also, though in a lesser degree, the appearance of Mr Dan Davies' Merthyr Choir, added to make the event exceptionally attractive from a musical point of view. It is gratifying to be able to record that the Eisteddfod of 1894 will not be behind hand in the supply of choral music, which after all is the feature that attracts and enthrals a Welsh audience. There may, perhaps, l>e an absence of that dramatic intensity that pervaded the thou- sands of up turned faces at the moment the adjudication was delivered in the male voice competition last year but where this year's competitions put last year's in the shade is from their numerical point of view. The number of entries is unprecedentedly large. especially in the music, and as several local choirs have entered, the interest evinced will no doubt be a guarantee that local musicians will attend in force. The entries in the aggregate reach the formidable total of 3.000. Additional interest is lent to the event from the fact that the President this year is Lord Dunraven, whose superabundant generosity in giving the c6100 prize in the chief singing C, z;1 "I competition for seven years, cannot but invoke the enthusiastic admiration of all classes. It is to be hoped that his Lordship will find it convenient to grace the gathering by his presence, as, if he does come, he is as sure of being accorded a warm reception, as the audience is sure to be favoured by a brilliant homily on the Eisteddfod.
