V ,rst public performance in Swansea of Dr est dramatic cantata was given m the A ert*hall on Thursday evening before a large T<^Ce' cantata depicts the lite scenes of ,n? °f Babylon. In the prologue the nar- rator describes the besieging of Jerusalem by H a ok i ^nezzar his troublous dreatn, which the Chaldelns fail to interpret, making the king 0"' tunoUR the success of Daniel's interpretation and llil elevation to power the setting up of an and 1 on Flains of Dura by the king, command to the people to come to its aed,catlon. The prologue is treated by the com- II-VIR T a canti!ena> allowing a fully developed nf\-Trw--i0rc:'lestra^ accompaniments, with phrases 'tena for the voice, thus avoiding mono- tonous effect. There is introduced as an accompanist to the words relating to Daniel's rlariono^1 melody bY violins, oboe, and ir i ,⢠Then follows "The Dedication cians, tslieceejed by the chorus of magi- king, live for ever," in which the tha? oilns recite in chorus the king's command o-oldpn i!?en sk°ukl fall down and worship the hplievpr!*la^e'. Then is heard the chorus of the decree f°r protection from the king's rrnHiirv,- xt» t^e chorus of the king's guards second the might of their ruler, and a Hebrew K°^s magicians followed by one by dedication iehveF,s- ,The Babylonians come to the of Nebur} J 'leraJ(1 proclaiming the command the that a" Pe°Ple should WTlV<J Hebrews A f °fllowin^,that 18 a prayer of the a chorus of-ij ? e» threetrumpets,.introducing flip B-OIHPW ."ylonians who fall down and worship that fall not^&t' PrcclaiminS W,°e *?. ti?er" _f tup u: ⢠The magicians draw the attention A/fpshach the disobedience of Shadrach, 1 npsrione'd K Abcdneno, who, on being qT serve h^y the kin^ reply That they will And these H Sods-" The narrator recites, v â;r,o- furna *'1? nien are bound and cast into a t>Uk lnriinns fcf' After an exultation chorus of Babylonians, is the chorus of guardian angels, will watch and protect," and the lang s eXclamation" Did we not cast three men bound into the fire?

The king cries totiie Qod pf ghadrach, Meshach, and Abednego °rgiveness. The people, in chorus, echo his ttivis ending the first part of the cantata. In the second part the king "gain dreams, and is afraid. He appeals to the magicians for its interpeta- tion, and ahid again interprets the dream. Al«s' ⢠thou art to be driven frommen> a,nd thy ling shall be among the beasts of the questions, "Is not this great Babyl°n J have built by the might of P° âf ,°^ honour of my majesty?" Chorus °ices: "O, King Nebuchadnezzar, the kingdoni IS departed from thee." Then fol- lows a met between a daughter of Babylon and Datlel, Uaniel interceding, and the people, in cliorus, cry to the God of Daniel. The king) restored to reason, cries to the people to join in praise to the Great God, and this brings the cantata to a conclusion. The orrriance was a most decided success. The conducted by Dr Parry, was one of the strongest which has assembled in the Albert Hall f0 time, and sang with precision and effect, wniiso the orchestra, led by Mr Woodward, was also a strong and most efficient one. Miss Marian laHs sang the soprano solos with much tee g, particularly in the prologue, which was much alJplauded Mr Hirwin Jones salig well in the teiior solos, and Mr Sauvage was in excellent voice. At the conclusion of the cantata the large audience demanded the re- appearance or Dr Parry, the plaudits being long contInued. In the second part of the concert, Mr Haydn Parry played a pianoforte solo, accompanJed by the orchestra, which elicited much applause* Perhaps the greatest success in the miscellaneous Part of the concert was the rendering by ^iss Marian Williams of Handel's â¢'Let the Brig .Seraphim," which was encored. The united cnoir gave, for the first time, a new centenary chorus, composed by Dr Parry for the jubilee of Sunday fechools in Wales. The concert was the most successful of the present season.
