MISS MAY JOHN, R.A.M. Although not attached to any party of Rovi* valistS, Miss May John, R.A.M., of Ton Pentre, Rhondda Valley, is undoubtedly the best known of the lady Revivalists," whose ser- vices have been so effective in spreading the movement and winning large numbers of souls to the Saviour. Miss John is the daughter of a highly-respected Calvinistio Methodist deaoon, now residing at Ton Pen- tre, in the Rhondda Valley, and was brought up in a. thoroughly religious atmosphere, so 1I:hat her training in that respect eminently fits her for the great work in which she now takes such a deep and active interest. Sha was a school teacher under the Ystradyfoawg School Board, but, when her abilities and talent as a soprano vocalist became known, her popularity in local concerts rendered it imperatively necessary that she should be sent to the Royal Academy of Music to com- plete training, which she had been under- going undter the tuition of, first, Mr. Tailiesin Hopkins,, Cymrner, and, afterwarde, Madame Clara Novello Davies, Oxr-if. Miss John was a prominent member and one of the principal soloists of the Welsh ILa-dies' Choir who sang at Chicago and in the American tour, and she was one of the four soloists who sang for the choir beiona her late Majesty Queen Victoria, at Wind- sor Castle. She was a prize-winner herself tut Chicago, and has been since engaged as solo singer for the concerts of the National Eisteddfod, and taken part in oratorio per- formanc-ea, not only throughout Wales, but in various towns in England, including Bir- mingham and Bristol. She has not given up her profession, but, strongly imbued with the spirit of the Revival, she has taken a very active part in the work in the Rhondda, in Cardiff, and in North Wales. She is now in the northern portion of the Principality, assisting in the Revival, and has been secured by the Rev. T. Ferrier Hulme, M.A., of Bristol, to proceed to Bristol for a fort- night in February. When at, 'he EevivaJ meetings she not only sings very sweetly and pathetically tibe ntecva.ge whioh she has to convey to her hearers, but takes an earnest a.nd intelligent part in conversing with waverers, and also in the more public work of reading and prayer. Her magnificent tendering of Over the line" is exceedingly impressive; but, of course, her repertoire is an extensive one, and her edu- cational advantages have been such as to enables her to give real add in the English, as well as the Welsh, services.
