Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod

Adjudication Form

Competition No. : 7 for Tenor

Name of Competitor : Arthur Messham



The tempo was just right. You did not sound as if you wanted to "fly to my beloved". "Vengeance" part much better. Semi-quavers were hurried and P4 not quite accurate. A few top notes were rather forced and you sometimes scoop to them.

(Over page): See Marry a Maid. You gave us the right "lilt". But it was hardly legato enough. Diction fair. 82.
