POLICE BAND BUMPER CONCERT. Fine Singing at the Albert Hall. In nearly every respect the grand concert organised by the Police Band at the Swansea Albert Hall on Thursday walll rank as one of the most successful in the history of the or- ganisation. The vast hall was packed with an appreciative audience, and the fare pro- vided was first class. The band itself, under the able baton of Mr. Wm. Courtney, dis- tinguished itself in three admirable selections, and when all the parts are filled there is no doubt the band will be one of the best in Wales. Even now, under difficulties, its tone and attack reflect infinite credit upon the bandmaster and the men themselves. The vocalists were Madame Sobrdno, Madame Hannah Jones, Mr. Whitworth Mitton. and Mr. Barry Lindon, and all acquitted them- selves to perfection. Madame Sobrino. who was a big success at the National Eisteddfod, gave "The Jewel Song," a song by Grieg, and another by Co wen, and established herself a favourite at once. Madame Hannah Jones was in her u6ual grand form. albeit suffer- ing from a cold which affected her upper re- gister. Her songs were all cordially re- ceived. Mr. Whitworth Mitton, a tenor with a beautifully clear enunciation, gave '0 Vision Entrancing," and "Nirvana," with suc- cess. He appeared slightly nervous in the aria. Mr. Parry Lindon was, however, the favourite of the evening, and lit is doubtful if he ever sang better in his long career. '•Biff Ben," a Welsh song, "The Wonders of the Deep," and "Drinking" were his num- bers. and his duet with Mr. Miittsn brought down the house. There was a pretty duet by the two ladies, and a quartette bv the lour artistes, beautifully rendered. Mr. David Richards' accompaniments were, as usual, up to the h ghost point of daintiness and distinc- tion. The hall was prettily decorated, and the floral decorations and palms were a re- freshing oasis in a desert of humanity.
