Musical Notes.


Musical Notes. By PETER EDWARDS, Mus. BAC. To the musical readers of the 11 LONDON KELT GREETING. This is my third introduction through the Welsh Press to the Welsh musicians of the city; and as the third essay is reputed to be a lucky or successful one, I venture to hope that the musical column, now started, will have a permanent place in the pages of the KELT." I should like these Notes to consist chiefly of Tit-bits about our Welsh singers and musicians generally. Personal matter is always interesting. Will the readers favour me, from time to time, with items of interest, to our readers ? I want, by every legitimate means, to encourage our younger singers, and other musical students. There is very little of this spirit abroad, now-a-days; but we must endeavour to assist one another as much as possible-although that may not be our own ex- perience of other's dealings towards us. Let me mention a young lady singer whom I recently heard singing in Wales--Miss Emily Wright of Cefn, Ruabon. This lady has a very fine Soprano voice, and if I mistake not, is likely to make a name for herself. There is, however, a certain "tide" which she (like others) must take at the flood." She has not yet appeared in London, and I should be glad if some of our concert organisers would secure her service, and thus give her an introduction to London audiences. I was pleased to learn of the success of Mr. D. J. Harris, of King's Cross, at Chester Eisteddfod. I have long admired the sweetness of his voice. My congratulations to Miss Gertrude Hughes, R.A.M., winner of the Robert Cox & Co. prize at the Academy last month. The Stratford Eisteddfod (to be held in March) will be the largest held in London since that memor- able one of "National" fame. There will be several choirs competing for the chief prize, as well as for the second prize-i.e., the Male Chorus competition. The ladies are complaining of the amount offered to ladies' Choirs. I am, however, in a position to say the funds will not admit of a larger prize being offered. Ladies, pray do not imitate the gentlemen. Compete for the love of the thing. I have received for notice in this column ALAW DDU'S new male Chorus "Dinystr Jerusalem." 100, Forest Lane, Forest gate, E.
