Comments and Reviews

"Music the greatest good that mortals know"
Joseph Addison (1672-1719)

"After hearing just the opening bars by the Cwmbach Choir it was immediately obvious that this was going to be a World class performance. The final part of the concert was an emotional one for me although I found out later that I was not alone. Aside from the highly charged emotions and thrilling experience I particularly noticed the roundness of the sound and evenness which all choirs try to achieve. This together with singing from the heart, made for pure magic."
Gottfried Mitteregger
Gabriola Radio, British Columbia,

"The ability, versatility, confidence and hwyl of the Choir drew a standing ovation from the audience of 400 which included the Lord Mayor of Oxford."
Secretary, Oxford Welsh Exiles

 

"The 80 voice Choir delighted the audience with a diverse repertoire of songs from Opera to favourite hymns. At times their voices were as smooth as silk as they crooned a Welsh ballad whilst in other pieces the volume they created sent chills up the spine."
Artscope, Ontario, Canada

 

"The Cwmbach Choir displayed great virtuosity as they went through their repertoire."
Banbury Guardian

 

"This choir has the best second bass section I have heard in years. The choir has a wide dynamic range and sings with a full throated choralism and frequently the effect was quite thrilling. Their soft singing was also particularly lovely. Prestigious singing indeed."
Belfast Telegraph

 

"This choirs precision and dynamics have to be heard to be believed. To receive such rapturous applause from a Welsh audience living in the cradle of welsh male choirs is certainly the finest accolade any choir could receive."
The British Bandsman
