Brynamman Organ Recital.


Brynamman Organ Recital. Christmas was spent here in quite the usual quiet way. The monotony of the holi- day was broken only by the strains of the Town Band, which paraded the streets in the morning, filling the frosty air with its enliven- ing music. Mr. W. Llewelyn conducted. The weather was bleak and boisterous in the early part of the day. but improved towards the evening, when a large number hied them- selves to Ebenezer Chapel, Lower Bryn- amman, where an organ recital was held under the auspices of the Soldiers' and Sailors' Committee. The organist for the occasion was ex-PTAV. Gwilym M. Jones, the one-armed organist, who evidently proved a strong source of attraction.. His performances were remarkably well executed, and the audience hailed each selection with unreserved applause. He was repeatedly recalled. The artistes were:—Soprano, Miss Sarah Evans, Garnant, a young vocalist who possesses a rare voice of melodious timbre, and who is undoubtedly destined to become a- star of the concert stage. Her singing was highly ad- mired. The bass, Mr. Harry Roberts, of Gorseinon, completely won the audience with his excellent vocalisations. He is an artistic singer, and is gifted with a voice full of charm and sweetness. He was recalled aftei each appearance. The elocutionist, Mr. Gwernydd Morgan, Pontardawe, has a style of his own in reciting. He would do excel- | lently as an actor. Evidently he has given the art of making action and word to go home together" exhaustive attention. His orations were very effective, and he held the congregation spellbound. He also was en- cored for each performance. Mesdames Fred Hargreaves and Kate Morgan-Williams pre- sided and conducted, respectively. The Band, prior to the concert, headed a pro- cession of the local soldiers and sailors through the streets.
