SUNDAY SACRED CONCERT. —The last of a series ot four Sunday concerts, promoted by the Dowlais Philharmonic Society was held last Sunday evening, aud like the three that had preceded it was spoiled by the weather. The roads in every part of the town were as slippery as glass, and the towns- people cannot 1*? blamed because they pre- ferred the coziness and safety of their firesides to the dangers of a frost-lxmnd route to the Odd- fellows' Hall. As was usual the proceedings were commenced by the singing of an old Welsh hymn, U fryniau Caersalem ceir gwellod by the choir and the audience, and this done the following programme was gone through :—Chorus, Their sound is gone out. The Choir song, The Chorister," Miss Marie Davies solo, The trumpet shall sound," Mr. Enoch Jones duet, Co, baffled coward, go, Mr. Evan Rees Evaus and Mr. Evan Thomas cnorus, All we like sheep, have gone astray," The Choir recitative solo, The people that walked in darkness," Mr. David Davies solo But Thou didst not leave," Miss Sarah Griffiths song, Flee as a bird," Miss Marie Davips choruses, Worthy is the Lamb," and Amen The Choir. From a musical point of view the concert was conspicuously successful. The choir pang splendidly and all the wloist", were in their best form. As on previous Sundays the accompaniments were played by Mr. Harry Evaus A.R.C.O. and Mr. Evan T. Davies. So ended the series of concerts and ev erybody must have been glad to see the last of them. Never since the Sunday concert was started at the tx*ginning of last vear has there been a succession of four Sundays without such dreadfully inclement weather. Last season there was but one really stormy night—and that was due to wind and rain. This year however the roads on thee occasions have been almost impossible with any degree of safety and on the other it was blowing a perfect blizzard. Thus have the entire series of concerts been spoiled by the frowns of that erratic personality, the clerk of the weather, although a fairly substantial profit has been made out of each of them. The battle with the elements has at length ceased, and henceforth we supjiose the pro- moters ot the concerts will not care whether it blows great guns and small arms and whether it will rain the proverbial cats and dogs. DOWI.AIS PHILHARMONIC SOCIETY. meeting of the general committt-e of the above society was neld on Friday evening at the committee room of the Oddfellows' Hall. Mr. R. P. Rees presided, and there was a fairly large attendance. In pursuance f of a resolution passed at a. previous meeting, by which the guarantors of the recent festival constitute the nucleus of a new committee, those present proceeded to ballot for the new committee-men, and 30 were elected. It was agreed that circulars be sent to the u2wly-appointed member9, notifying them of their election, and also informing them that the old com- mittee, and they alone, would l>e responsible for^the liabilities already incurred by the society.—The Secretary read a letter from the Hon. Anthony HowelfcC United States Consul at Cardiff, in which h<i expressed his regret at the financial non-success of the Christmas festival, and enclosed a subscription of £ 1.—Mr. Harry Evans stated that in view of the forthcoming competition at the National Eisteddfod, it was imperative that the choir should consist of the be^t singers in the town, and he suggested that a test should be applied to all persons who were wishful to join the society.—This was unanimously agreed to, and Messrs. A. J. Silver and W. H. Powell, Merthyr, were appointed examiners.—Some of the best known members of the choir were nominated whips to look up the siugers.— Ou Sunday evening Mr. Harry Evans explained what had 1)f!L'n done to the choir, and the test was gone over by all present. The examina- tion for membership of the choir that is to compete at Llanelly was commenced on Tuesday evening. Mr. Powell was unfortunately unable to be present, and the work had accordingly to lie done by Mr. Silver alone. The candidates were examined oy twos and threes, and the proceedings lasted from a little before eight o'clock until about ten. Altogether about 90 persons presented themselves for examination, an astonishingly large number for so boisterous a night, The examination will lie continued to-morrow (Friday) evening in the assembly room of the Oddfellows' Hall, and will commence at 7-30 o'clock. It is to be sin- cerelv hoped that all singers who are wishful to main- tain the reputation of Dowlais as the premier musical town of Wales will come forward aud render Mr. Harry Evans that assistance and support which he so well merits, and with the aid of which he will come back victorious from Llanelly.
