The Treorchy Royal Male Choir…


The Treorchy Royal Male Choir on Tour. A Visit to Edinburgh and Bootle. The Treorchy Royal Male Choir as a musical combination are keeping up their reputation finely, and any suggestion of staleness on their part is refuted by the endless engagements they continue to have Among the very latest was their appear- ance at Edinburgh to fulfil a week s en- gagement under the auspices of the Pri- mitive Methodists at the Livingstone Hall. The choir in its entirity at present only numbers about 22, and for this particular tour 15 singers made the journey, accom- panied by Mr. Wm. Thomas, their cele- brated conductor, and Mr. Hugh Hughes, G. and L., pianist, Treherbert. The general trend of opinions pronounces the tour as an unqualified success, and musically it was one of their finest ven- tures, which means a lot when we remem- ber the fine achievements of the choir in the past. The Scotch papers were unani- mous in their praise of the Treorchy choristers, whom they held to have reached a state of perfection in choral training, and whose wonderful renderings were the best ever heard in the city. The artistes were also loudly praised, Miss Mary rc Thomas, Treforest, the successful young soprano, making a creditable debut with the choir. The other soloists, Messrs. Todd Jones (tenor), J. Devonald (bass). and Aneurin Edwards (baritone,) members of the choir, acquitted themselves with credit, a remark equally applicable to Mr. Hughes, the accompanist. The visit to the capital of Scotland enabled the choir to visit several places of note and interest, and from an intellectual point of view alone, the, trip afforded an excep- tional treat, which should be turned to advantage. Although the choir had to Mng at about 14 concerts in seven days, they still found time to perform an act of kindness and generosity by giving a musical treat to the inmates of the Royal In- firmary, where they appeared by invita- tion. On the journey home, the party gave a concert at Bootle, Liverpool, where they met with a tremendous ovation from one of the most select audiences they have ever appeared before, with the Mayor, Dr. G. S. Wylde, presiding. Tbii proved the best effort of the choir on their enjoyable outing, and as a proof of the marked impression made, it is likely that the promoters of the above; concerts will renew their invitation at a date not far distant.
