A Welsh Vocalist in South…


A Welsh Vocalist in South Africa. t The following extract is taken from a Capetown newspapei — "Rarely have we eet-n the Feather Market pacsed to an extsufc as on Sunday evening last, when Mr Roger A-.obaru gave his JWth U,g.1Jl Recital. A musical attric n waH tht") first appearance in Port Elizabeth of Mr Lewis Thomas, a gentleman who has gained a considerable reputation on the concert beards at Homo, and when it got noised abroad that he had kindly promised to sing, great interest was centred in the coining event. Within our personal recollection, ro tenor eiuger of aav repute has ever appeared here, and we can safely say that the majority of last Sunday evening's audience had never heard the two fa!noui arias sung in such first-class style. Mr Thomas is not only gifted with a powerful and melodious voice ot great compass, but has alto the very necessary technique, which enables him to sing with perfect ease and faultless intonation such florid passages as Handol revelled in, and which are fully shown to perfection in the well known Every Valley," from the Messiah. At tho conclusion of this item, the audience were excitedly enthusiastic, and in response to the unanimous encore, Mr Thomas gave the popular ballad "The Holy City,' which quite won the hearts of the audience. The second item, Mendelssohn's beautiful air If with all your hearts" was also greatly appreciated, and as an encore Mr Thomas kindly gave a charmingly poetical rendering of a little song of Gounod. The audience seemed to be in the mood to listen to Mr Thomas' artistic singing all the evening, and should he favour us with another visit, he will meet with an equally brilliant success, for the public of Port Elizabeth do not often gpt such a ticat." Mr Lewis Thomas is a son of Mr T J Thom-i.3 London, who will bo recognised as a native of the neighbourhood of Carmarthen, and is connected wi Ul several families in the town.
