I Jesus of Nazareth
I" Jesus of Nazareth." PICTURE SERVICES AT DOWLAIS. The large audiences which have con- gregated at Bethania Chapel, Dowlais, has abundantly confirmed the extraor- dinary interest anticipated prior to the opening service on Wednesday evening. The critical onlooker amply found scope for philosophic, reflection in the atti- tude and demeanour of the large as- sembly, representative of all the Prot- estant denominations of the Dowlais district. The various churches, gath- ered in common unity for tne nonce, having obliterated all vestige of secta- rian bias, indubitably shadowed the on- coming obsolescence of warring bar- riers, opening up the way for the oom- plete co-operation of Christian forces, with much greater frequency than has characterised the religious atmosphere of the past. The committee and orga- nisation responsible for the present se- ries of religious lectures deserve the ut- most congratulation for the successful consummation of their efforts in the experiment of welding, in a common bond of brotherhood, every individual Church from Pengarnddu to Penydar- ren. Owing to unforeseen difficulties, the service on Wednesday evening com- menced a quarter of an hour later than the advertised time. Mr. Edward Williams, headmaster of Gellyfaelog Schools, in well chosen, laudatory sentences referred to the ef- forts of the committee and the officers, particularly emphasising the work of the lecturer, Mr. H. Quant, of Mer- t'hyr, who also was largely responsible for the successful organisation of the services. The Chairman thereupon introduced the Mayoress of Merthyr, who came in her official capacity, deputising her husband, Coun. H. M. Lloyd, the Mayor, who was unavoidably absent, but has signified his intention of being present at this evening's service. The Mayoress, in a singularly happy and graceful manner, delivered a brief ad- dress, making way with commendable ,tact for the service proper. In the absence of the Rector Dowlaia the Rev. D. Adams, B.A., B.D., after ed the opening prayer. Mr. Quaint, who lost no time in con- ducting the congregation through the principal incidents of the Life Story of the Saviour, interspersing homely com- ments principally of interest to thi youthful portion of the audience. The entire congregation heartily joined in in the singing of the splendid selection of hymns, both English and Welsh, rendered very effectively by be shown on the screen. A selected choir, conducted by Mr J. H. Harris, excellently gave "To G-d in the Highest be Glory," from "Tha Nativity." This item was sung in the adjoining vestry. Miss Bessie Williams (soprano) sang her solos from "The Messiah in a splendid manner, and Miss Maggie Williams, contralto (han- dicapped in having to sing "He shall Feed His Flock, without previous no- tice) gave a tasteful rendering of "He was despised. "Mias Millie Davies, Mer- thyr, a young singer of promise, gave an expressive rendering of the solo, "A Ruler once Came." Miss A. Ruth Price, of Gellifaelog Schools, and Miss Doris Bettington excellently recited very ap- propriate selections. A notewotrhy feature also was the singing of "Mae'r fy Ngharu," by twenty of the Bethania Sunday School Choir, the congregation joining in the singing of the chorus. The massed choir, under the baton of Mr. Evan Thomas, commendably sang Worthy is the Lamb," under very difficult circumstances, having to sing a difficult chorus in semi-darkness. The pictures, the work of a master artist, were immensely appreciated throughout and little surprise was occasioned at the announcement made, viz.:—"All re- ligious and literary London were at- tracted to the Galleries of the Fine Art Society at the exhibition of Wil- liam Hale's celebrated paintings. Dare's masterpiece, Christ Leaving the Praetorium," visibly affected the congregation. The vesper hymn. "Lord, keep us safe this night," sang by the choir only. closed the service. Mr. D: W. Davies, A.R.C.O., orga- nist of Bethania Chapel, presided at the organ, and was of much assistance to the musical portion of the service. Mr. D. B. Williams, Morlais Street, and Mr. G. Hicks, Victoria Street, discharged the duties of treasurer and secretary respectively.
