ORGAN IN THE CATHEDRAL CHURCH OF LLANDAFF. While in more lengthen'd notes and slow The deep, majestic, solemn organs blow" PorE. To the Editor of the Advertiser and Guardian SIR,—Your remarks on the ;,bore subject in yotif columns of the 2nd instant, induces iiic to express my surprise that it has been suffered to remain so long unnoticed. In these days of science and of song," when the Divine art of music is so much cultivated,—when we read the accounts of the intro- duction of that noble instrument, into the country Churches* in the hitherto uncultivated wilds of our mountain land," and when we hear, in the differ- ent towns and cities through which we pass, the soul-stirring sounds of the pealing organ," ascend- ing forth from so many small dissenting places of worship, it is certainly a matter of regret, and carries the appearance of great apathy and a want of true devotional spirit on the part of those connected with her, that our venerable Cathedral Church, the foun- tain-head of the diocese, should have so long lacked this great addition to her beautiful services. It is now, I believe, nearly a century ago since an ancestor of the present ancient family of Cern Mablv> in this county, presented the Cathedral with r.U organ, and if there be not to be found in the present day one individual, possessed of the means, princely- minded enough to follow so good an example, perhaps an appeal to the many may have the desired elfeet. I have heard the salary of an orgatiwt put forth as an objection against having an instrument, but surely the spirit, both of the many rev. gentlemen connected with the Chapter, and of the resident gentry and others attached to the establishment, would not suffer so trifling an impediment to stand in the way. If I may be allowed to suggest the means, I should say a small annual subscription from each would suffice to remove that objection. In the event of a subscription being set on foot, I shall feel great pleasure in contributing my mite either towards the instrument, or for a person to perform upon itt or indeed to both if necessary. You, Sir, have kindled a spark which I have thus humbly endeavoured to fan into a flame. I shall now leave the subject and trust it will be taken up by some one more competent to the task, and hoping the flame may go on increasing until it be extin- guished only by the attainment of the desired object. Remain, Sir, Yours respectfully, Oct. 6th, 1S41. BETA. Blaina and Trevethin.
