We were again pleased to be invited to join the Hywel Girl’s Choir and Angelicus Celtis in a celebration of music in aid of the very worth while Charity “Swansea Foodbank”. This charity is close to the heart of the concert organiser Gorseinon Mayor Cllr Jan Curtis.
To a very near sell out audience The Hywel Girl’s Choir started the evening with 4 numbers. “O Fortuna” from Carmina Burana, “Pie Jesu” from Requiem, “Stabat Mater” from Stabat Mater and “Y Delyn Aur”.

2nd Section “Panis Angelicus”, “Benedictus” and “Climb Ev’ry Moutain”.

All conducted by their Director John Hywel Williams. With accompanist Jane Jewel, guest organist Huw Tregelles Williams, percussionists Gareth Hamlin.

Morriston RFC Male Choir sang in three sections starting with an audience favorite “Gwahoddiad” followed by “Anfonaf Angel” (Soloist Huw Roberts). and “I Bwy Y Perthin Mawl”.

2nd Section “Sanctus”, “All I ask of you”, “Diolch i’r Ior”.
(Soloist Huw Roberts).

Lastly “Tears in Heaven” and “O Gymru” (Soloist Huw Roberts).
All conducted by MD D Huw Rees with accompanist Hywel Evans and guest organist Huw Tregelles Williams.

Angelicus Celtis joined the celebrations and sang 7 songs in two sections. A selection from the “Ceremony of Carols”, “Ava Maria”, “When I fall in love”, “He was Beautiful”, “Angelicus Adoremus” and “Jerusalem”.

All performances by The Hywel Girl’s Choir and Angelicus Celtis were extremely highly polished, giving their all and making a beautiful cohesive sound. It was a pleasure to listen to such wonderful voices.

The evening concluded as usual with all performers and audience joining for the National Anthem.

Thank you to St Catherine’s for the refreshments after the concert. Very much appreciated.
