JEPHTH A AT ABEIIDAKK. The production of Handel's great oratorio "Jephtha," at the Temperance Hall, Aberdare, on Thursday evening last, by Eltenczcr Choir, Trecynoii, proved a great attraction. The spacious hall was packed by an orderly and enthusiastic audience, and many were unable to gain admission. This was the fourth grand annual conceit of the choir, but it sur- passed its predecessors in eveiy way. The choir was assisted by the following well-known artistes:—Miss Maggie Mo-es, R.A.M., suprano; Miss Ceinwen Jones, R.A.M contralto; Mr. Maldwyn Humphreys, A.R.A.M., tenor; and Mr. Gwilyui Thomas, Vnvshir, bass. Mr. W. E. Thomas, Treeynon, was the conductor < f the choir, and the way in which they .ang the various choruses, proved to all that he must- ha.ve taken a grea.t deal of time and labour in order to bring them to such perfection. The programme was opened with an overture by the .orchestra, under the leadership of Mr. E. T. Roberts, Cardiff. Miss Maggie Moses, who is an attractive you.? lady, took her part excellently. She possesses a fine soprano yoicf, and her various solos being greeted with rounds of applause, showed that her voice was appreciated t( the utmost by everyone. Miss Ceinwen Jones, it, usual, came up to all expectations, and her rendering of In gentle murmurs,' was very good. The flute and oboe obligato by Mr. Hodges and Mr. J. A Phillips respectively, was well played and bighlj appreciated. Mr. Maldwyn Humphreys created quite A sensation, and many were inclined to believt tnat he possessed as fine a voice as Mr. Ben Davies He certainly has a very rich and well cultivated voice, and used it splendidly. He sang, "Deeper ant deeper still" and "Waft her angels" beautifully, anc received loud and prolonged cheers and encores. Mr GWllym Thomas was much admired by the audience, and his singing was really very good. Mr. R. Howel; was the accompanist, and being so well-known, needs no words from us to praise him. At the pianc lie is always the right man in the right place. ThE orchestra certainly deserve all possible piaise for th( manner in which they played the difficult pieces. Mr, W. E. Thomas having been himself an orchestra player, knew exactly what was wanted, and it is in t great measure due to this that everything passed of so excellently. The orchestra was composed of th( following :Pii iit violins, Messrs. E. T. Roberts (leader), M. Morgans, W. Davies, E. Morgans second violins, Messrs. J. Minett, J. Richards, F Harrison, and J. Gwynne; violas, Messrs. F. Arnolc and It L. Berry; violoncellos, Messrs. T. R. Lewi, and M. Morgans double bass, Mr. J. W. Smith flutes, Messrs. J. E. F. Hodges, T. Lawrence, M. Rees oboes, Messrs. J. A. Phillips and H. Thomas cornet, Mr. T. Prestwood; trombone, Mr. J, Williams euphonium, Mr. J. Prestwood drums, Mr. W. II. Da vies: harmonium, Mr. It. Howell*. -r.
