ORATORIO AT OYSTERMOUTH. A SUCCESSFUL CONCERT. The long-looked-forward-to concert in aid of the organ renovation fund, in connection with Castleton Congregational Chapel, turned out an unqualified musical and financial suc- cess. The members and the choir had for some time previously all worked with com- mendable assiduity, and the result was the rendition they gave of Geo. Shinn's sacred oratorio, "The Captives of Babylon," on Thursday evening in hst week, left little (if anything) to be desired. Indeed, everyone was highly pleased with the way in which the singers acquitted themselves under the baton of Mr. JabfZ Daniel (the conductor). The choruses, "Not all the stern prophetic warn- ings," "The sound of the trumpet is heard," Who is Cyruts," were especially well ren- dered. The supntl10 solos were taken by Mrs. P. H. Tucker, Mrs. B. Kingdon and Miss A. Jenkins. The two first-named artistes are old favourites at Oystermouth, and it may be truthfully stated that they enhanced their re- putations. Mrs. Kingdon (nee Miss Martha Elliott) gave a splendid rendering of H irken to the Lord Je iij v-th," while Mrs. Tucker, who was in excellent voice, was heard to the greatest advantage in Down from the Wil- lows "—an exquisite piece of music. Miss A. Jenkins also sang her parts in a delight- fully sweet, and fashion. Miss a Bragg and Miss B. Harris, two rich contraltos, sang two solos in a praiseworthy fashion; and Miss E. Owen (a particularly powerful contralto), Mrs. F. Beer, l\'l.r:f<'airchild and Miss A. gave two duets, while Messrs. Cottle, 13. Harris and Messrs. D. Daviea and Arthur Phillips took part in a quartette. Mr. Phillip Beyuon, the well. known local basso, had some fine passages to render, and he did everything remarkably well, the general opinion being that he had never been heard to such great advantage ort" I'he tenor solos, also, wers admirably sung hy Mr. Hy. Morris, and it only remains to be stated that Miss^Kuight and Mr. Ernest Childs rendered valuable service at the piano and organ respectively, also that Mr. W. V\ llliams (the Cliff) discharged the duties of cuairman in a most satisfactory manner.
