At concerts we ask our audience participants to provide “like best” comments and this is a sample of what have recently received:
- “..choice of music and songs and the variety of voices and harmony. Wonderful animated conductor.”
- “..the dynamic nature of your singing and the selection of songs for the programme.”
- “..the way the men are enjoying the singing and the excellent accompanist..”
- “It moved me to tears they sang so beautifully.”
- “So so excellent! Thoroughly enjoyable, excellent conducting and accompanying. The joy they also feel conveys itself to the hearts of the audience.”
In early May of 2011 we toured in Ontario culminating in a performance in Brantford Ontario with seven other male choirs. Each choir got to sing two or three pieces before all 230 men sang six numbers together. We sang two pieces. You can see both of them on YouTube: Prayer of the Children and I Get Around. Our second song “brought the house down” and rewarded us with a standing ovation. (Use your browser’s back button to return to this page afterwards.) Prayer of the Children is also on our fourth CD, “Coming Home”.
On YouTube you will also find the Welsh hymn Gwahoddiad conducted by Eifion Thomas, director of the Llanelli Male Voice Choir (Côr Meibion Llanelli) and sung with the Vancouver Welsh Men’s Choir as well as Leonard Cohen’s Halleluljah sung with the Colwyn Bay Male Voice Choir (Côr Meibion Colwyn). The latter was recorded at Ryerson United Church in Vancouver in August 2016.
