CAERSWS. CHORAL FESTIVAL.—The annual choral festival in connection with the Arwystli Rural Deanery was held on Wednesday, under circumstances of a most favourable character. The day was gloriously fine, and this fact, no doubt, contributed not a little towards the success by which the event was at- tended. For the festival (which took place last year at Llanidloes) choirs from the following parishes had been carefully prepared by Rev W. D. Roberts, Llanidloes, and under the experienced leadership of this gentleman, attained a high degree of excellence :Llanidloes, Llnngurig, Llandinam, Trcfeglwvs, Carno, Caersws, Llanwnog, and Pen- strowed. These choirs, consisting of nearly 150 voices, assembled for service in St. Mary's Church on Wednesday morning, when the preacher was Rev Cecil Hook, Vicar of Oswestry. The choral celebration was taken from Dykes in F, as was also the Te Dellm. The remainder of the service was conducted as follows Celebrant, Rev W. L. Richards, Penstrowed; Gospeller, Rev Morgan Jones, Llandinam, R.I).; Epistoler, P.ev O. K. Williams. Revs D. Parry, Vicar, and D. Williams, Vicar of St. Harmons, were also present. At tho conclusion of service the choirs were entertained to lunch, the caterer being Mr D. K. Thomas, of the Buck Inn, who prepared an excellent repast, and as usual, gave complete satisfaction. In the evening, at six o'clock, evensong was celebrated in Llanwnog Parish Church, Rev T. H. Hughes,^ Vicar of Llan- gurig, occupying the pulpit. The Processional Hymn (as in the morning) was The Son of God goes foth to wax," the tune being St. Peris," taken by permission from the new Welsh Hymnal, Emynradur yr Eglwys yng Nghymrn," whilst the Chants were "Llyti," Gweddi," Cerddorol" (by Rev W. L. Richards). Tallis's Choral Service was performed, the anthem" The Lord is King" being given with great effect. Rev T. E. Jones, Carno, intoned the service, the lessons being read by Revs E. O. Jones, Llanidloes, and E. Edwards, Tref- eglwys. At the services, which, morning and evening, were attended by much success, Miss Marshall, Llanidloes, discharged the duties of ac- companist with her usual ability.
