? Vocalist's Sudden Death. I MR. J. BRAZELL SUDDENLY EXPIRES. I A painful sensation was caused in Llanelly on Monday on the receipt of a telegram from I Fishguard conveying the news of the death, on board the Mauretania, of Mr John Brazell, a prominent member of the Llanelly Royal I Choir. Deceased, who was a tenor vocalist well known in South Wales, was with the choir on the tour in the United States, and stayed behind to take up an engagement there. He, however, decided to return, and, though being in the best of health on em- barking, be was seized with his fatal illness before reaching Fishguard. I Dec-eased, who was accompanied by his brother, Mr. David Brazell, R.A.M., had not previously complained of illness, and was taken suddenly ill. He was medically atten- ded to. but -expired from heart failure and brain fever on Sunday night. I Deceased had an appointment at Terrahanti, I Ind., but was persuaded by his brother to re- turn home. Mr. John Thomas, the conductor of the Llanelly Choir, when interviewed, said :1 did my level best at New York, on the day previous to our departure, to get him to return with us. but he would not do so. He elected to remain in the States, and to return to Ter- rahanti, where he had been offered a good appointment in a church as a soloist. He was an exceedingly fine vocalist: his singing was greatly admired in the States, and at the close of the tour he was in better voice than at the begi/ining. Apart from suffering from colds occasionally, he never complained of illness. He was of a most genial disposition, and was liked by all who knew him." The members of the choir are kindly re- quested to attend the funeral, which will take plac.e on Friday afternoon at 3.30 o'clock.
