Porth. I It is rumoured that Mr. T. D. Edwards A.R.C.M., the popular organist of Salem Baptist Church, Portli, aiid recently ap- pointed conductor of the Pontypridd Musical Society, is about leaving the neighbourhood. We understand that Mr. Edwards has received a most pressing invitation from the Welsh Baptist Church at Treharris to undertake tire duties of organist and choirmaster there. He has not yet replied in the affirmative, but will in all probability do so. Treharris Bap- tist Church has a, membership of about 450, and is one of the leading and most flourishing in the denomination. The post is a lucrative one and with a large two-manual organ and a good choir, there is ample scope for a capable musician. However, a strong feeling is expressed locally that some effort should be made to induce Mr. Edwards to remain among his old and numerous friends. To lose so able a, musician from the district would be an irreparable loss—especially in con- nection with the annual oratorio festival held at Porth, with which Prof. Edwards' name has become so vitally a'ssociated. His services as organist during the past six years have been of inestimable worth, and "T.D." can truly be described as a "sine qua non" in connection with one of the most important' musical events of the Principality. It is to be hoped that Salem Church will be able to retain the valuable services of their highly esteemed organist for many years to come.
