Organ Recital at Llandinam. Neighbouring towns might well cast a covetous eye at the little village of Llandinam for the musical treats which are periodically provided for the music-lovers of the district through the never-failing generosity of Miss Davies, Plas Diuam. An attractive programme, on Wednesday, drew large crowds to the C.M. Chapel. In the after- noon the sacred edifice was comfortably filled, while at evensong it was packed, and very many failed to gain admittance. Professor Joseph C. Bridge, M.A., D.Mus. F.S.A., the organist of Chester Cathedral, on this occabion presided at the organ, whilst the vocal programme was shared by Miss Amy Evans, a rising Welsh soprano, and Mr Emlyn Davies, a baritone who finds general acceptance among Welsh audiences. It is impossible, in the space of a short report, to more than note some of the outstanding features of the afternoon and evening performances, though a column alone might be devoted to Dr. Bridge's magnificent accomplishments, in which was included every phase of the organist's art and skill. Whatever preconceived ideas the critical listener may have of this or that compo- sition, he can rest assured that the conception of Dr Bridge is that not merely of one of our first organists, but an aroh-muaician thoroughly con- versant with the modes and moods of every great composer whom he interpreted He succeeded in making the organ recite in the very language of each composer; for instance, he gave the letter and the spirit of Handel full of vivacity and freshness in the overture to Richard I., and again in the Introduction to Parsifal one was privileged to hear the great tone poem rendered with a wide grasp and convincing fidelity. The organ is not an orchestra, and Parsifal, like practically all the great compositions, was, of course, scored for an orchestra, yet the Doctor bridged the hiatus, and his conception throughout was truly Wag- nerian. Tschaikowsky's Andante in F and the adagio movement from Dvorak's "New World" Symphony also furnished instances of how, with skilful handling, the organ can be an effective vehicle of what is best in orchestral music. Possibly Dr Bridge might have preferred to have included in his repertoire merely music which had been written by organists for organists, but such pieces are to the world outside stodgy and, although a minute and therefore negligible section of the audience might have been the more delighted thereat, he preferred to let the listeners hear what was finest in music rather than the efforts of organist composers. The choice was abundantly justified. Miss Amy Evans for the first time faced a Montgomeryshire audience, and, no doubt, her fine renderings would have earned many a full- throated encore had her voice been heard in a concert hall instead of a sacred building. Her unaffected style gave one a predisposition to ap- preciate her singing. Possessing a highly-trained voice of remarkable brilliance and timbre, she gave especially-finished renderings of How lovely are Thy dwellings and Randegger's Save me, 0 God." There was, perhaps, a trifle too much finesse with only a modicum of sympathy in the Mendelssohn selections, but the dramatic pas- sages were given with insight and verve. Mr Emlyn Davies was not by any means a new- comer, as this was his third appearance. He ap- plied all the art and energy at his command to give sympathetic renderings of Mendelssohn's Lord God cf Abraham and How willing Thy Paternal Love" (Samson). Mr Emlyn Davies' singing was certainly an improvement on the last occasion, but he might accomplish more were his vocal range more even and extensive. There were two Welsh solos given by each of the artistes. Miss Evans' selection was pretty, but amorphous; while Mr Emlyn Davies sang what was described as "An Old Weldh Melody" in the traditional manner. The Rev Richard Jones, M.A., presided at both services, and conducted the devotional portion. The collections were in aid of the Montgomery- shire Infirmary New Building Fund, and a satis- factory sum was by this means raised. Mrs Ed. Davies very hospitably entertained the altistes and also a large number of guests at Plasdinam. The latter found much to admire and wonder at in the chrysanthemum house.
Injustice to Llanmerewig. Sir,—Under the above heading, in your last issue, Mr. J. G. Miller appears in the guise of a martyr. He would have the public believe that he is a much injured man because his pockets have been drained to meet the demands of the Board of Education in respect of Dolforwyn school, and the calls of the Local Education Authority in respect of Cefncoed school, and what makes it doubly exasperating to him is this, that there is no prospect of finality about these exac- tions, that they are to go on for ever,, like the Mule which passes by Mr. Miller's door. And in the case of Cefncoed that td. in the X may grow into an amount far beyond the reach of the wild- est imagination. Now, Mr. Editor, if Mr. John Miller is really the man of affairs he represents himself to be, why did he not take the ordinary precaution of counting the cost of being a found- ation manager of a non-provided school before accepting nomination. If he is in a fog as to his liabilities, let me refer him to section 7 (sub-sec. d) of the Education Act, 1902. Perhaps Mr. Miller thinks he should be under some kind of dispensation under which the Church managers might appoint the head teacher and have the Catechism taught without paying the price laid down by statute. If Mr. Miller's mind is free from illusions of this kind, and if he is tired of the bargain, why does he not back out of it? It would be much more sagacious than this public jibbing. Now let us examine Mr. Miller's facts (?) about Cefncoed. He says Llanmerewig gets no benefit from the erection of this school. I may say in reply that five children from Llanmerewig attend Cefncoed, and it is in respect of these children that a local rate of td. in the £ is raised in the parish. Hitherto it has not been the practice in our county of levying anything under fd. rate, and it more money is raised from Llanmerewig than is due in respect of the children who attend Cefncoed this year, the matter will be taken into conaidera- tion next year when the apeoial rates are made. I oan Msure Mr. Miller that Llanmerewig will in the end get even-handed justice. Mr. Miller says that Llanmerewig was not consulted in the matter of the erection of Cefncoed school. In reply to this statement I may say that the Educa- tion Committee issued public notices, by advertis- ment and by handbills, of a public inquiry to be held at Kerry into the matter of the erection of a school at Cefncoed, and all who were in any way interested in the proposal (for or against) were invited to tender evidence. A large number of witnesses were heard, and, without exception, they supported the proposal. The only difference of opinion was as to the location of the school. Now, if Mr. Miller thought a school was unneces- sary at Cefncoed, why did he not come forward t, ?ive the Committee the benefit of his opinion instead of crying in the wilderness at this time of day, when the school is built, furnished, and affording education to 59 children ? If Mr. Miller wants to obtain a hearing in the affairs of life, he must mend his pace.—Yours truly, Pendinas, Caersws. RICHARD JONES. November 17th, 1910.
CARNO. LAMENTABLE DEATH.—Mr Richard Morgan, aged 29, only son of Mr and Mrs Morgan, Tybrith! died on Sunday morning, the 14th instant. He had been brought up as an electrical engineer, and had acquired great skill at his profession. While on duty at Nobel's Works, Stevenston, South of Scotland, on the 11th inst., an oil tank overflowed in a chamber underneath his depart- ment. The fumes ascended into his room, and he dropped down from suffocation. A passing friend, happening to see him in this prostrate position, dragged him out and had him removed to his lodgings. In spite of every effort from medical men and nurses to save his life he expired on the morning of the 13th. The news gave a terrible shock, not only to his own family, but also to his numerous friends at Carno, for he was a young man of such fine qualities and winning ways that everyone seemed tond of him. When at home for holidays he took particular interest in singing and was a special favourite with the choir. In several of our literary meetings he was the mov- ing spirit, and his services to the little congrega- tion at Soar will not soon be forgotten. He was none the less active and useful at Stevenston, where he was held in high esteem. At the earnest request and entreaties of his bosom friends at this place his mortal remains were laid to rest amongst them on the 16th. There is very great sympathy in all the country round with the bereaved parents and sisters of our young friend who was oalled away so suddenly and so early.
LLANFAIR-CAEREINION. REVIVAL SERVICES. Mrs Jones, Leeswood, Mold, held a series of services at Zion Baptist Church commencing on Tuesday evening and closing on Friday evening. She delivered thoughtful, eloquent and powerful sermons in a most earnest manner. The services were well attended throughout, the chapel each night being filled to overflowing. Collections were made in aid of the mission. Miss Davies, Tymawr, pre- sided at the organ, Mr Fred Davies being the precentor. ACCIDENT.—A serious accident which might easily have proved fatal occurred close to Llanfair on Friday morning. Mr Richard Jones, Blowty Farm, Llangftdfan, assisted by John Ingram, was driving a waggon drawn by four horses to Llanfair. While turning round the corner on the new road opposite Melinyddol, the shaft horse became restive and starting running. Mr Jones, in rush- ing to hia head, was knocked down in front of the waggon, both wheels passing over his chest. The team was stopped by the Llanoddian workmen opposite Llanoddian turning. Mr Jones was con- veyed to the Black Lion Hotel where Mr Jehu shewed every kindness and attention possible to the injured man. Dr Humphreys was immedi- ately in attendance and did all that medical aid could to Mr Jones. It is believed that he has escaped with no injury other than broken ribs. Fortunately the waggon was empty at the time, because had it been laden the results must have been much mere serious. Mr Jones is a much re- spected farmer living with his mother, brothers and sister at Blowty, and he has the sympathy of pil in the sad event which so suddenly and unex- pectedly overtook him,
