Wales tour triumph

 

JUNE 6: The Croydon MVC scored a resounding success with its North Wales tour last weekend.

Richard Hoyle preps the choir at Chester, watched closely by Welsh tv

On Friday May 29 the choir sang at Chester Cathedral and members considered this a performance to rank with the Bath Abbey sing of 2011.  “There was a good audience, the acoustics were fabulous, and we were on top form,” one said. The Chester performance also featured the first appearance of new choir pianist Frances Ringer.

Magnificent at Winchester

The Croydon choir enjoyed a magnificent evening singing in a mass-choir concert at Winchester Cathedral on Saturday (November 15). The concert, featuring five male voice choirs, was in aid of the Prostate Cancer UK charity and the key-note speaker was former England cricket captain David Gower OBE.

In his speech, David referred to the notorious occasion when he buzzed an England match in Australia in a Tiger Moth in 1991 and was fined £1000 by the England management. Croydon MVC presented David with a copy of our CD Those Magnificent Men and he joked about this in his final speech. David also praised “the magnificent singing of these magnificent men in this magnificent venue”.

Choir sings at Westminster wedding

The Croydon choir sang at the Westminster wedding of Julia Weatherill, granddaughter of the late Commons speaker Lord Weatherill, on Saturday September 7.  Afterwards we received a letter of generous praise from the bride's father, Bernard Weatherill - extracts to be found below.

The wedding was held at St Margaret’s, Westminster, known as the parish church of the House of Commons. The Croydon choir sang Battle Hymn of the Republic, Benedictus, and Be Still My Soul – also known as the Finlandia Hymn.

Richard was warmly applauded by choir members at Eden Park ahead of the concert.  The choir was on top form and afterwards Richard said it had been an excellent concert with an enthusiastic audience.

"I  was conscious of how much had changed in the past ten years.  The choir has grown in size, scope and ambition in a way that none of us would have envisioned."
