MUSICAL NOTES. [BY LLWYN ON.] SIR ARTHUR SULLIVAN. This eminent musican has been conductor of the celebrated Leeds Festival since 1880. It is said now that he is going to retire from the conductorship. The Leeds Festival Choir is a magnificent one, and we trust a worthy suc- oeasor to Sir Arthur Sullivan will be appointed. BARRY MALE VOICE CHOIR. This excellent body of vocalists has been giving a musical treat to the inmates of the Cardiff Union. We are glad to notice that the choir is giving concerts for local charities. A Cardiff musician had a novel experience some years ago at the Union in C North Wales. He went in company with a friend to hear a well-known divine giving a sermon to the inmates of the Union at C but the divine failed to turn up, and the musician had to give a lecture on music instead, and this to the evident delight of the inmates, who were not afraid to say that they enjoyed the lecture on music better than the sermcns they were accustomed to hear. TABERNACLE CHAPEL, BARRY DOCK. The Temperance Choir sang two pieces in fine style at the temperance meeting held at the above place on Tuesday evening in last week, under the conductorship of Mr John Petty, in the absence of the conductor of the choir, Mr W. T. Samuel. We understand that Mr P. Draper will have 23 instrumentalists under his leadership at the forthcoming concert of the Barry Temperance Choir on December 6th, when Handel's immortal "Messiah" will be given. Tickets are going well, and a bumper house will greet the choir. THREE MUSICAL PAPERS. There are three musical monthlies, which are well worth reading:-(I) The Musical Times, under the editorship of Mr F. G. Edwards; (2) Mutical Herald, edited by Mr J. Spenser Curwen-this is a very bright and readable periodical; (3) Nonconformist Journal, edited by the late organist of the City Temple, Mr Minshall. The three gentlemen editors are Nonconformists; but as for that, it doesn't matter what they are, for music doesn't recog- nise any sects or creeds. Musical readers should see these monthlies. By-the-bye, does one of these come to the Barry Dock Library ? If not, musicians should do their best to get one of them at any rate for the Library. XISTEDDFOD AT CARDIFF. A successful Eisteddfod was held last week at St Andrew's Hall, Queen-street, Cardiff. Several choirs from Cardiff competed, but were not successful. The male voice went to Ogmore Vale, and the chief choral to Maesteg. Better luck to Cardiff next time. 8 AND 7. A student from one of our colleges was preaching in a certain chapel in Cardiganshire, and the first hymn he gave out was Mesur 8 a 7 (Metre 8 and 7). He gave it out a second time, but no one seemed to start the tune. Then the student a third time said with great emphasis, Mesur 8 a 7 (Metre 8 and 7). Then one of the old deacons in the big pew said: Wel, dyna bumtheg (Well, that is 15).
