LLWYNHENDY AND DISTRICT. Tabernacle Chapel choir, conducted by Mr G. J. Davies, gave a most beautiful rendering of the cantata, "Footprints of the Saviour" by Edmund Rogers, on Saturday evening, and the encomiums that have subsequently been lavishly showered upon the choir and con- ductor are by no means an exaggeration, for it was really a finished performance from beginning to end. The choruses, "Hail the day that sees Him rise" and "Crown Him with many crowns," deserve special mention, as the effect produced was most thrilling and dramatic. The sopranos were' particularly brilliant, and there was a cohesion and blend in the whole choir which is not always to be found in these performances. The elioir was assisted by the following artistes, all of whom gave general satisfaction:—Soprano, Blodwen Hopkins, Llangennech; contralto, Miss Rachel Jones, Ammanford; tenor, Mr. Tom Bonnell, Peutre; bass, Mr. Aneurin Morris. Loughor. The members of the choir who took leading parts were Miss Annie Bowen, Misses M. E. and R. A. Bassett, Miss I Edith Williams, and Mrs. W. J. Thomas. The cantata was followed by a miscellaneous programme, which was as follows:—Song, "Sound an Alarm," Mr Bonnell (encored); song, "Nearer, my God, to Thee," Miss Jones (encored); song, "Bandolero," Mr. Morris (en- cored); song, "April Morn," Miss Hopkins (encored); quartette, "Good night, beloved," Misses Hopkins and Jones and Messrs Bon- nell and Mortis; finale, "Hen Wlad fy Nhadau." The chair was ably filled by Mr. J. D. Jones, Penllwyncrwn. Mrs; G. J. Davies accompanied upon the piano, and Mr. E. W. Thomas upon the organ. -0- Anniversary services were held at Taber- nacle Chapel on Saturday last, the special preachers for the occasion being the Revs D. Williams, Land ore, and D. Owen, Caersalem Newydd. -0- I The local Independents held a rehearsal at Bryn Chapel on Sunday night, preparatory to the "gynianfa ganu" three weeks hence. Some beautiful congregational music was heard. There was a stoppage of three days at the Glynea Colliery last week, in consequence of a dispute with the hauliers; but work was resumed on Saturday, pending negotiations. We hope a. permanent and satisfactory settle- ment will be arrived at. -0- A juvenile choir from. Tabernacle Chapel will compete at Burry Port Eisteddfod on Whit-Monday.
