Cwmbach Male Choir

Founded in the Heart of Aberdare - Queen of the Valleys


Mr Gwyn Evans

Cwmbach Male Choir is saddened to learn of the death of Mr Gwyn Evans of Penrhiwceiber at the grand old age of 95. A Life Member since 2011, Gwyn was a real gentleman, kind and jolly, a lovely baritone who served Cwmbach Male Choir faithfully for more than a generation. The master of the Gymanfa Ganu, he annually organised and led the choir and a large gathering of local admirers in the his beloved Carmel Chapel,  always conducting the celebration of hymn tunes with gusto and enthusiasm. We send our sincere condolences to his wife Teg, to whom he was married for 68 years, and to their family and friends at this sad time. He will be greatly missed by one and all.

Gwyn’s funeral service is to be held at his beloved Carmel on Tuesday 17 November at 11.45 am, and will be followed by a committal service at Llwydcoed Crematorium. The members of Cwmbach Male Choir will gather in strength at Carmel to show their respect and love for a man who freely gave so much to his family, his chapel, his community and his choir.
