WELSH MUSIC. To the Editor of THE NORTH WALES TIMES. SIR, The cathedral organist of St. Asaph attempted 60 criticise Welsh music, Welsh composers, and Welsh vocalists, at the Church Institute and Literary Society, the other week. When I first heard of the subject Dr. Wilson had chosen for his paper, I wondered where he had gained his experience. And being curious, I naturally attended the meeting, jotted down a few notes, and listened to some ot the most ridiculous re- marks I ever heard. Needless to say, they were remarks which betrayed complete ignor- ance of the subject. There was one remark which I do not think ought to be allowed to pass unnoticed. Dr. Wilson stated that the music that was sung ab our National Eisfcedd- vodau was rubbish What an insult to our Welsh musicians! How will they bear their fate? Whose opinion will they hsten to-that of the St. Asaph organist, or of such men as Bennet, Mackenzie, Barnby, Cowen, and other high authorities, who have had ample opportu- nities of judging Welsh music ? I rather think the latter. Several of those present at the meeting took exception to the doctor's remarks, amongst whom were Mr. John A. Lloyd, Mr. Joseph Lloyd, Mr.Walter Williams, and others. Yours truly, A CITIZEN.
