MAENCLOCHOG. A Popular Conductor in a New Role.-Fresh from his brilliant victory at Narberth Easter Monday eisteddfod, Mr D Evans, the success- ful choir conductor, acted mi the capacity of adjudicator of music at Dinas eisteddfod on Wednesday week. Besides winning prizes in the musical line, Mr Evans has won prizes galore for recitation, and his remarks, hints, and suggestions to the competitors indicated a student well refined by the cult of the ele- vated muse. He is a fluent speaker both in English and Welsh, and we feel sure that his services as adjudicator of music and recita- tions will be eagerly sought after in the near future. We have received, through Mr Jonah John, the secretary of the eisteddfod, the written adjudication of Mr D Thomas on the chief choral contest at Narberth. It was as follows :—Choir I: Good voices, with plenty of tone, but this is hard at present, and the bass at times were rough. The leads at pp. 2 and 4 were not in strict time. At p. 3 some incorrect notes were sung, and the intonation at the words "grossness quit" was rather uncertain. On the whole, the singing lacked breadth of treatment and warmth of colour. Choir II: Finer and softer tone than No. 1- better blend of voices—better choice of "tem- po for the chorus. This gave the choir a better opportunity of giving breadth of style and majesty of effect to their rendering. They achieved a better climax a p. 3. The leads at p. 4 were correct as to time of entry. There was more and better attempt at gradation of tone than Nb. 1, and their intonation through- out was good. The general effect was majes- tic as well as powerful. The prize is awarded to Choir II. -u-
