All Saints Church, Weston, Bath. 17/09/2016
Billed as a Three Choirs Concert – Music From The Hills And Valleys, this was a “return” concert with the Mendip Male Voice Choir following their visit to us in 2015.
The ladies of Parti Llwchwr also joined us in the concert, having been part of last year’s event. They were conducted by Janet V. Jones and accompanied by D. Huw Rees, our MD. We were accompanied by Rhiannon Pritchard.
Each choir sang from its own repertoire, with the Mendip choir (MD Jamie Knights, Acccompanist Phil Evry) singing the well-known Welsh hymn Llanfair in English. To end the first half we joined the Mendipmen in You’ll never walk alone.
The second half took the same format, but we were joined by Parti Llwchwr in Anfonaf Angel, and then all three choirs ended the concert with American Trilogy.
The performances were warmly appreciated by a packed church, and the evening ended with wonderful afterglow in the adjacent hall, with an excellent buffet and sing-song. We would like to thank all those responsible for our warm welcome, and for the buffet – especially the lady who made ALL the cakes!
