gate and being equal with Maryborough
in the madrigal. The Paling Shield, pre-
sented for the chief male, and female
choruses, was won by the Blackstone-
Ipswich Cambrian Choir. It was a con-
vincing victory. In the grand total
the choir scored 564 points, Marybrough
being second with 549. Distinction was
added to the performance of the Black-
stone-Ipswich Cambrian choir in win-
ning the Shield by the fact that the
1926, at Gympie in 1927, and at Ips-
which were the only records engraved.
Maryborough annexed the ladies' chorus,
Thc Rockhampton Musical Union won
the second choral by a margin of 12
points and, in fact, for the third time
in succession, becoming possessors of
the Grice Cup.. In the chief chorus
the Rockhampton Musical Union was
only three points behind a choir which
had been for many years justly famous
—the Blackstone Ipswich Cambrian
Choir. That they did not actually beat
be attributed to thc fact that they
against 80, and the three points were
lost in the singing of a long and heavy
chorus, in which one of thc main factors
was volume of tone.
THE EISTEDDFOD CIRCLE.
More Eisteddfodau have been held in
Ipswich than in any other city of the
State, and Ipswich has been more con-
tinuously and prominently identified
lia. Since 1892 nine Eisteddfodau have
borough, and three each at Bundaherg,
Toowoomba, and Warwick. Brisbane
and Gympie, had been more or less asso-
years. Maryborough, Bundaberg, and
Toowoomba joined tho circle in turn,
Maryborough being thc fourth. War-
wick joined in 1911. Then 18 years
elapsed before the claims of Rockhamp-
ton, the eighth city, which had already
carried out very successful local Eis-
teddfndau, were urged and acknow-
During the last three years the Rock-
hampton Musical Union had come more
tive musical circles in the south; but
been done at Easter 1928 established
1892—chief, male, and female choruses,
madrigals, second choral, church choir
contests, and aggregates—Ipswich won
of 35. In three years, as already sta-
male choruses, held just as regularly,
Ipswich accounted for 16, including
three ties. Four were in consecutive
doubles, except for a tie in 1927. In

Brisbane Eisteddfod. In madrigals since
1913 Brisbane had three wins—two by
any big event since 1892, also a win
added five since 1916S and Brisbane Aus-
the Brisbane Austral taking four. Thus
the 15 aggregates since 1913 have been
shared by only Ipswich and Brisbane.
fodau, the city still leads Maryborough
in firsts in big events. Twenty-five is
Gympic's total, including seven in the
chief chorus, four in the male chorus,
five in the ladies* chorus, four in the
second choral (one tie), and five in the
chorus twice, the first in 1906 and the
second after a break of 20 years. The
only time Maryborough was on top in
the male chorus was in 1902, but 25
years later the city tied with Ipswich.
Maryborough had its first win in the
ladies' chorus in 1916 and two since,
being equal with Ipswich in 1925. Mary-
borough also tied with Ipswich in the
mardigal in 1928, the first time, in fact,
that Maryborough reached the top in
borough had a win in 1914. It was in
the church choir contests, however, that
taking seven. Maryborough Methodist
won the first in 1902. Maryborough
Presbyterian followed in 1914 and then
added five out of the six in 1922-27.
Escept for the Toowoomba Methodist
Choir's win in the church choir contest
in 1920. Toowoomba has not been in the
winning list of big events at Eistedd-
fodau in Queensland for a dozen years,
though in all competitions the capital
of the Downs scored four firsts in the
chief chorus, one each in the male and
female choruses, three in the second
choral, and two in the church choir con-
tests.
Bundaberg won the chief chorus a
quarter of a century ago, but none since.
The city also won a second choral and
tied withGympie, and tied with Ipswich
in a madrigal, while Bundaberg Metho-
dist recorded the city's first win in thehe
church choir contest in 1906 and St.

GYMPIE'S THIRD.
The success achieved induced the pro-
moters to again organise an Eistedd-
fod, and so on the birthday of the Prince
of Wales, November 9th, 1886, the third
Gympie Eisteddfod was held. Sir Samuel
Griffith, who was still Premier, was one
of the presiding chairmen and he made
a notable address at the opening of
the eisteddfod. The principal choral
items were won by the Palatine Hill
Choir, the conductor being Mr. F. T.
STILL IN THE EIGHTIES.
One of the most important of these
festivals in the eighties took place in
Brisbane in 1888, when choristers from
Blackstone under the name of Black-
stone United Choir, journeyed to the
metropolis and tied with Brisbane Cam-
brian Choir for the chief musical hon-
ours.
BRISBANE AND IPSWICH.
For about a decade musical festivals
were held alternately at Brisbane and
Ipswich, except in 1893, when, owing to
the diaastrous floods, the Eisteddfod for
that year was abandoned. In those days
Brisbane had two large choirs, the Cam-
brian and the Choral Union. The origi-
nal Blackstone Choir had become united
with Ipswich choristers, under the name
of Blackstone-IpswichCambrian Choir,
the present conductor of which is Mr.
Leonard Francis, who has occupied that
position for more that 20 years. The
choir has had a wonderful record of
successes, not only at Queensland Eisted-,
dfodau, but at Ballarat and Sydney. Mr.
Francis, who has adjudicated at a Rock-
hampton Eisteddfod, is regarded as a
leading authority in the musical world,
not only in Queensland, but also Aus-
tralia.
Owing to insufficient merit, no award
was made in the chief chorus at the
Eisteddfod held at Brisbane in 1892. Such
an event has never occurred since. In
that year the male chorus was won by
(a) Ipswich and (b) Brisbane and the
second choral by Brisbane Cambrian. In
1894, at Ipswich, Brisbane Choral won
the chief chorus and the second choral
and Blackstone the male chorus. In
1895, at Brisbane, the chief chorus was
won by Ipswich, the male chorus by (a)
Brisbane Cambrian and (b) Byn's, M.C.,
the second choral by Brisbane Cambrian,
and the church choir contest by the
Mowbray town Presbyterian, in 1896, at
Ipswich, thc chief chorus was again
won by Ipswich, the Brisbane Cambrian
annexing the male chorus and the second
choral and Gympie the female chorus. In,
18897, at Brisbane, Ipswich scored the
third consecutive win in the chief chorus,
Brisbane Cambrian taking the male
chorus and the second choral and Gympie
the female chorus.
GYMPIE AGAIN.
It was not until 1898, shortly after
railway communication with the metropo-
Gympie Church of England (the second
time in succession) the chief choral con-
test, while the honours for the male
Brisbane Cumbrian and Ipswich respec-

The fifth Gympie Eisteddfod and the
second in connection with the State move-
ment since 1892 was held in the One-mile
rccreation ground on Easter Monday,
1901. Gympie won the big prize—the
chief chorus—-also thc male chorus, Ip-
In the following year, at Ipswich,
Gympie again won thc chief chorus.
Maryborough, for the first time in the
winning list of big prizes, won the male
chorus, Ipswich taking the second choral.
MARYBOROUGH'S FIRST.
The first Maryborough Eisteddfod was
held in the P. and A. Society's Exhibi-
tion Hall (show grounds) on Easter
Monday, 1903, and for the fourth conse-
cutive time Gympie was triumphant in

previous festival of the kind took place
there. For this, the fourth Gympie Eis-

Gympie Theatre. The chairman of the

the same year, at Brisbane, Gympie an-

had what was practically a triple win
1898-1903, winning, in addition to the
choral contest. On this occasion the
the Maryborough Methodist.

GYMPIE AT ITS ZENITH.
Gympio reached thc zenith of chor-
al singing in 1907, when the Eistedd-
fod was held at Maryborough, for the
second time, on Easter Saturday and
the seventh time in ten years, won the
choruses, the former four times in ten
years and the latter four times in eleven
years. Thc second choral in 1907 went
to Toowoomba. It was Toowoombu's
preceding years scattered the members
and then the death of Mr. V. T. Perci-
man in Queensland—he was the wonder
of his day—undoubtedly struck a seri-
ous blow at Gympie's prestige and a
circles, extending to the bands. The
veteran Percival conducted for the last

any other period in its history. But
from 1897 until 1907, a period of eleven
years, omitting 1900, when no Eistedd-

is taken as a criterion. Seven wins
in the chief chorus, four in the male
chorus, four in the female chorus, four
in the second choral, and four in the
church choir contest is Gympie'a re-
cord in stellar events for tc period
mentioned—a truly remarkable achieve-
ment.
GREAT TOOWOOMBA FESTIVAL.
In 1908 the Eisteddfod was held at
Toowoomba for the first time, Too-
woomba being the sixth city of Queens-
land at which the Queensland, Eistcdd-
the Eisteddfod Council as at present
constituted acme into being.
The capital of the Downs was then on

of the Austral Association in 1D03 for
thé advancement of music, art, Utera-
ture, science, industry, and sport, one of
the live wires being the renowned Alis-
tralian poet, Essex Evans. It inclu-

considerable time the unique hall re-

polis. Thus terminated one of th»
most memorable activities in Eistedd-
Toowoomba won both the chief chorus

1008, the male chorus going to (a)
the female chorus to Brisbane Austral.
In 1009 Gympie was the scene of ope-
rations, but on this occasion, as also ia
1016 and 1921, when the Eisteddfod was
held there, Gympie audiences had to
watch visiting choirs tate the chief
prises. In that year Gytupio Presbyte-

awarded to Gympie was for the fems
chorus in 1911. At Gympie in 1909
Ipswich won th« chief, male, and fe
male choruses, Brisbane Austral the
second choral, and Gympi: Presbyterian
the chief choir contest.

held in a large marquee in the park,
