MUSICAL TALENT AT FISHGUARD, To the Editor of the COUNTY ECHO. Si It,—That we have musical talent at Fishguard need not be questioned, as suffi- cient..proof of this was shown on New Year's Eve. J t about 11.30 on Sunday night, two choirs started (as is the custom) to welcome the New Year in by parading the streets and singing, and it fell to my lot to hear the two choirs rendering their songs, therefore I am in a position to give a fair report of their singing, and of the class of music chosen for the occasion. Musical theorists tell us—"If we draw a violin bow across a tuning fork, we should hear what is called music;' and If you shake, a tool box, with nails, &c., yould hear what is called noise." Now, I say that one of these chojrs represented the latter to the extreme. When in High- street, somewhere about Mount rieasant, the two choirs came in contact with each other. One of the choirs commenced by singing some of the beautiful strains from Ilandel; this choir consisted of. some very fine voices, and their singing was very effec- tive, but, unfortunately, they were inter- rupted by the second choir singing* comic songs, and a cracked bell for an accom- paniment. AH I said before thai we have musical talent—I can assure you, sir, that they were delighted with such music. Of course, the first choir very wisely retired But the conduct of the second choir was shameful, and suggests to one, in the name of civility, what will become of us. People professing religion taking part in such a disgraceful gathering on a Sunday night. May I ask our young people to aim at something bettor than that of disturbing the peace of tho town.—Yours, &c., A LOOKEU ON.
