"I was born and brought up in Cwmbach, and went to the junior school there. I moved away 30 years ago now, although my roots in wales are very strong. I am thrilled to find your website and hear your singing again- it means a lot to me. How wonderful - I hope you keep singing for a very long time to come. Sue"

"My family and I greatly enjoyed the singing at your concert last night in Malvern. I brought home a CD which I know will give me constant pleasure. My only negative comment would be that the junior performers (Hannah and Rachel)were given too many slots in the concert. Their standard of performance was high but a couple of pieces would have been adequate. This was a comment I heard made by several people in the hall. I can understand that the choir need regular breaks, but maybe two or three of the choir could have performed individually or in a group as the audience had primarily come to hear the singing. Taken as a whole however, we felt it was an evening well spent "

"Having read the comment of another satisfied customer, I felt I had to add the congratualations of Nick and myself on the performance in Weston last Saturday. You left the audience spellbound with the enthusiasm of your conductor and accompanist. The choir sings with such heart and the lovely choice of music along with the contribution by your soloists made it the perfect evenibg. We will both be at St Georges Hall in Bristol in November. Thanks once again."

"Thank you so much for your wonderful performance at our Anglican Church here in Nice. The sound of Wales came flooding back to me, an old Tonteg girl. The singing was superb and the two young soloists were talented and confident. What an advert for Wales. Please come back again soon."

"Greetings to Kerry & Eirlys Griffiths and the Cwmbach Male Choir! It is over a year since my visit, and I continue to enthuse about my experiences with you.

"The choir has safely returned from our wonderful concert tour to Parma, Bardi, San Remo and Nice. A big thank-you to everyone we met, all those who helped us and our supporters for the backing they gave. Very emotional in Bardi, exhillerating in San Remo, and enchanting in Nice.Thanks one and all, but especially to Luca Dombre in Parma, withour whom none of it would have been possible. Brian Williams (Choir Chairman)"

ABERYSTWYTH  

"I am a top tenor with Cor Meibion Aberystwyth and had just a brief few weeks with your choir before moving to Aber. This is my one regret I having not made the time to have sung with the choir when I lived in Hirwaun . I last had a mini reunion with the boys when you sang at a televised choral competition in Corwen in North Wales. I am so pleased to see this historic choir revival continues and send you my very best wishes for the future. Bob Matthias. PS Some of your members know me as the manager of Burtons Aberdare and the founder with Ann Jones (deceased )of the Aberdare festival "

"We just wanted to thank you all for your latest english cd which we received courtesy of malcolm and to let you know that we think it is absolutely fantastic. We play it at least once every day and probably know the words better than you do now. We are looking forward to hearing the new Welsh one. Best of luck to you all on your trip to Italy next month. "

"We just wanted to thank you for your warm Welsh welcome at all the practices we attended on our recent trip. It was great to see and hear you all again. You have become a big part of our visits. Your advert for Merlin was so inspiring that we bought a bottle at the airport. We shall think about you all when we drink it. Looking forward to hearing your new cds in the near future. Hope your next gig at Penderyn Church on Saturday goes well. All the best. See you next time. "

"After a wonderful concert at Malvern last night, I am reading your lovely Souvenir programme and brochure. This was the best concert by a welsh choir that Paul and I have ever attended, and we are regulars !!!! Your sound, clarity of words and selection of music were simply stunning and I just needed to send you this message.Well done. please come back again as soon as you can. Congratulations on your performance, and thanks for making an old valley girl so happy for one evening. Rhona and Paul Smith"

"Saw the choir perform last Christmas with my daughters school during a trip home. Put goosebumps on my skin, the hairs on the back of my neck stood on end, put a lump in my throat and a tear to my eye. Truly **amazing** heard live. You must release "Impossible Dream" soon on cd. Magnificent. Nigel."
