BAPTIST MUSICAL FESTIVAL AT MERTHYR. On Monday last the annual Baptist Musical Fes- tival was held at Zion Chapel, Twynyrodyn, Merthyr, and proved a great success. The choirs who took part were from Cefn, Bethel (Georgetown), Ebenezer, and Zion. The singers numbered between 400 and 500, and sang the various choruses with splendid effect, under the baton of Mr. Dan Davies, the talented leader of the Merthyr Invincibles." The accom- panists were Mr. David. Williams (Zion), and Mr. Morris, Cefn. The chairman of the committee was Mr. Thomas Humphries; the duties of treasurer were entrusted to Mr. Richard Llewelyn, and the onerous duties of secretary were carried out very admirably l»y Mr. W. J. Lewis, Bethel. The morning meeting, held at- Bethel, was for juvenile choirs, which w-re conducted by Mr. WiHiam Thomas, liethel, in the much regretted, but unavoidable, absence of Air. Dan Davies. The following tunes were siin.- I'latit y Nofoedd," "Arglwydd, dyma fi," "Golchwyd eii Gynau yn Ngwaed yr Oen," "Bryniau Canaan," "Sychl1 y Dagrau," Fe Aned y Messiah Mawr." Tho Rev. 11 Illtyd Jenkins, Bethel, presided. The singing of the children was very effective, especially in the tune "Bryniau Canaan." At two o'clock the afternoon meeting was commenced at Zion, under the presidency of the Rev. W. B. Griffiths, of Cefn. The ¡ chapel was crowded in every part. The singing was magnificent throughout, tho followiug being the tunes: Samson," Job," Salem Lan," Gotha," Graig," "Bala," "Engedi," "Winchester,"and "Waterstock." Mr. Dan Davies conducted in his well-known brilliant style. Special mention should be made of several tunes, including Salem Lan and "Gotha," as well as the 'grand chorus, Worthy is the Lamb," which was given with grand effect. The recently-composed anthem, by Mr. Lewis Morgan, "Mawla'th Krys Di yn Seion," was also sunv, to the great delight of all present. The anthem is exceedingly pretty, and was sung in good style. The evening meeting was presided over by the Rev. W. A. Jones, Zion, when the follow- ing tunes were sung, Mr. Dan Davies ascain conducting Haydn," Irfon," Tadmor," Pisgah," Ebenezer," Beverley," Croesawiad," "Dies jlras," Hungerford," Llanbeblipr," and "Worms." Tho special feature of this meeting was the rendering of the magnificent tune composed by Mr. D. C. Williams Irfon; those in tho know'' declaring it to be the best item on tho evening's pro gramme. This uptaks highly of our worthy towns- man. The effect was marvellous, esjjecially III the singing of the last four lines of each verse O na bai modd i mi Ysgoi ci hymchwydd hi, A hcdfan mveh ei lli' I'r Ganaan hyfryd "Mae braw ar f enaid gwan Mai boddi fydd fy rhan, Cyn cyrhacdd tawel lan Bro y golcuni IAliani yr ofnaf mwy? V Duw a'u daliodd hwy A'rn dyga inau drwy Ei dyfroedd dyfnion." A stirring addres5 was delivered by Mr. Joseph Owen, and the gymanfa was a grand success in 'I', every way, musically as well as financially. There lira-! a crowded attendance at eaclj meeting.
