MUSICAL ADUDICATORS. Sir,—Will you grant me a small space in your paper to refer to this matter? I read in the "Merthyr Express" the notes of a speech delivered by Mr. Harry Evam, F.R.C.O., at Abergavenny on Easter Monday, in -giving his adjudication on the cbisf choral contest. I pre- sume that the fewness of the choirs oompeting ] a-oused Mr. Evans's ire, and led him to offer his reasons for this. There can be no doubL tltat he spoke woids QI wisdom when he eaid that _( AN sfeoisi k+VMK 4to -s-guilwo I to enter the arena with new works did more for niuoic than a hundred choirs (more or less) did who sang nothing but hackneyed music— "musio that had been done to d^ath." These words have the essence of truth and wisdom in them, but I have grave doub-s whether this was the reason for so small a rubber entering th" various competitions. Psrb?.p* Mr. Evans could, if he v find -on naarer home. Whatabo <he standard ssr. up by -Mr. Evana? Is it unfair that the pi<H:c should expect Mr. Evans to practise his precepts? If he tsiis in this, then Treat sneeth^a at Eis- teddfodait and Musical Cc.f.fences are nothing but LnsutTerable prating. ') the following works new?—(1) "Overture on Wiiiiam Tell" ^Rossini), (2) "Hallelujah C -Handel); ( J) "Fantasia on Hymn-tune. Li-• (Harry Evans); (4) "The Lost Chord" (Sullivan). works are four items given by Mr. Evana in tho organ recital at Cwmbach three days after the outpouring at Abergavenny. May I ask Mr. Evans respectfully to look up all tho pro- grammes of Welsh Eistedafodau for Easter reason, and point out works more hackneyed than he played at the above-mentioned recital? There are some works that cannot bo done to death, because they are dead already. There are others that can be done to death, for there is something in them; and, 'astly, there are other works that cannot be done to death, for thev have in them the essence, yea, the quintessence of music, which will not die. CWMBACHITE.
