CAKTATA.— On Thursday last a cantata was performed by the Saron Juvenile Choir, entitled "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs." On rais- ing the curtain, the children marched on the stage, it being a festival on the occasion of "Snow White's" sixteenth birthday. Fortu- nately, or otherwise, "Snow ,hitp. becomes a beauty in the land, and the "Queen' hears that she is the most beautiful creature in the world. This statement rather startles her, and to attain her ambition to be the prettiest woman, as well as "Queen," siie decides to send "Snow W hite" into the wood with the huntsman, instructing the latter to kill the princess. She persuades the huntsman to spare her life. and he agrees to do so. She wanders into the forest, and takes charge of the "dwa.fs," but the "Queen," hear- ing that she is still alive, makes several at- ( tempts to kill her. Eventually she is success- ful, and her success gratifies her ambition to be without a rival. The cantata is founded upon Grimm's "Fairy Tale.' It was very prettily performed throughout. Characters sus- tained bv the following:—"Princess Snow White," Miss A. M. Powell, Merthyr (soprano); "Queen," Miss Sarah Jones (contralto) "Prince," Mr. Dan Davies (tenor); "Carl," Mr. William Jones (bass). Speaking parts were taken by the following: "Arburtus," Master Dannie Davies; "Max," Master B. Jones; "Hans," Master E. H. Williams; "Violet, Miss Edith Davies; "Daffodil," Miss Bessie Rawlings. Assistance was rendered the choir, and all did their work in an excellent manner. Mr. David Richards and Mr. W. Pritchard Gou-h were the pianist and organist respectively, and there was also an orchestra. The conductor was Mr. John Lloyd, A.C.. to whom credit is due for such a. successful per- formance.
