IMPORTANT REMARKS BY MR. D. JENKINS, MUS.BAC. At the close of the evening's programme, Mr D. Jenkins, Mus. Bac., delivered an address of an important character to the choirs, dealing largely and forcibly with the ne- cessity for the introduction of Welsh tunes, clothed in English words, into English services. It would be a great advantage to English churches, and to the development of Welsh music, if this suggestion was adopted. He would urge that the best Welsh tunes should be made use of in this way, and any inferior Welsh tunes at present in use should be done away with. There was a great lack of variety in congregational singing in Wales. The Welsh M*ere prone to use Welsh minor tunes rather than the more valuable major tunes. There was nothing, he added, grander than the simple minor tunes in their way, but congregations found a more fully developed outlet for their religious feelings in the splendid major tunes of some of the most prominent Welsh composers. If Welsh congregations thus adopted the works of the best Welsh musicians into their English services they would greatly improve the character and effect of congregational music. Mr Jenkins proceeded to quote the instance afforded by Dr Parry's tune "Aberystwyth," which most admirably suited the English words Lord, remove the veil to-day," the effect of which was so clearly noticed that day.
