Cwmbach Male Choir is saddened to learn of the death of John Merriman, a faithful chorister and former Chairman and Vice Chairman of the choir.
John , on returning with his wife Jenny to live in Aberdare, rejoined the choir after a gap of many years, and loved not only the singing, but the friendship, social activities and tours.
Our thoughts go out to Jenny and their families. He was a true gentleman and will be fondly remembered by everyone connected to the Choir.
Johns' funeral will be held on Monday 19th June at 2.15pm at Llwydcoed Crematorium. Choristers please be at the Crematorium for 1.50pm.
Remembrance Day – Cwmbach at Cardiff Central Station
Created: Friday, 11 November 2016 19:17
On Friday 11th November the choir was truly honoured to be a small part of a Remembrance Service at Cardiff Central Railway Station. Arriva trains Wales transported the choir down from the top of the Cynon valley to the Capital City where we sang Morte Christi and Gwahoddiad prior to the two minute silence at 11am. A huge thank you to Sheridan George and Bob Thomas who travelled independently to set-up the piano and sound system and to our MD Dr Mike Thomas for conducting the choir in the bustling and challenging environment. Special thanks to the boys from Mount Rugby Choir who also travelled with us and contributed to the rich sound that echoed throughout the hall and tunnels at Cardiff Central.
