CWMPARK EISTEDDFOD. To the Editor. Dear Sir,—Allow me a little space in your valuable paper to make reference to the ad- judication on the choral competition in con- nection with the competitive meeting held at Cwmpark on the 25th February. The report alipeared in your last week's issue, and the prize was awarded to the Cwmpark Choir, conducted by Mr W. Butler. As one of the audience present on the occasion, I am desir- ous of pointing out the apparent inconsistency of the adjudicator, Mr Theophilus Thomas, Pontvgwaith, whose decision in favour of the Park Choir was as unpopular as it was unde serving. Three choirs sang, the Cwmpark Minstrs, Cwmpark United, and the Treorky Musio Lovers, in the order named. When the competition was over, there appeared no hesitation whatever regarding the ultimate winner. The unanimous opinion prevailed that the latter choir, hailing from Treorky, were clearly the superior on all points. They gave a better rendering of the test piece "Dyddiau dyn sydd fel glaswelltyn." They appeared to have sang all the movements as demanded by th. copy, in excellent style, and the singing was characterised with all requisite touches. Th< rendering of the choir that secured the prixe would hardly bear favourable comparison with that of the Treorky Choir. The award of th adjudicator came, therefore, as a great sur- prise, and as an unbiassed and impartial read- er, I would feel obliged if -r Thomas,through your columns, would state the reason for his peculiar decision. Fairness and justice is equally as important in our small competitive meetings as in a National Eisteddfod, and Mr Thomas's explanation, whatever he has to give, should be given publicity, and that with de- tail. Thanking you tn anticipation.—I am, etc., JUSTICE.
