LLANSANTFFREAD, (CARD.) NEW YEAR'S DAY.-It has been for many years the custom of the Church folk here to hold an anniialcoucert, the proceeds of which are to be given for purposes agreed upon by its supporters. As a general rule this used to be held on Christmas evening, that d.iy being thought, suitable by many ill the light of its convenience rather than of any designed or wilful indifference to its higher uses Not many years ago the concert was tranferred to New Year's evening, a change which has been and ought to be welcomed by all of us; &it is gratifying to find that Christmas is now more reverently observed in this part of the world than it has been for ages. A noteable feature in these concerts is the fact that they have never, so far as we are aware, turned out a failure, for the receipts have invari- ably outweighed the expenses; and so it proved this year, although the surplus this time was not as large as might be expected. There was a lengthy and varied programme, well rendered and represented by the local talent. Suffice it to say that it was a good one. The only drawback attri- buted to it was an excess of the English element, which, by the way, was a peculiar and irredeem- able disadvantage, to the very great majority of the audience. This disadvantage, however, was not due to any direct violation of the patriotic senti- ment, but rather to the difficulty experienced by the artistes in obtaining suitable pieces in Welsh. It is to be hoped that a better fortune may attend the Welsh element in our future concerts-at least let us make an effort to restore it to some of its pristine glory. Where are the old bards and musicians of Wales ? an echo answers, Where are they ? The chairman this year was Mr D M James, Rhiwbwys, who made himself a perfect master of the situation. The accompanist was Miss Morgan, The Green.
