An enthusiastic audience of over 150 greeted Flint Male Voice Choir when they performed in St Andrew's Church on the evening of Saturday, 8th April. Under the direction of their Conductor, Kevin Whitley, they delighted their audience with an eclectic mix of Welsh Airs, well known religious music, and songs from the Musicals.
Starting with "The Creation",they followed this with the haunting welsh air "Cysaga", "Speed Your Journey" from Verdi's "Nabucca".and the rousing "Cwm Rhondda" ( Guide be O thy great Jehovah).
We were then introduced to local Soprano Debbie Hughes,who sang Ivor Novello's "Love is my reason, and "Little Democelle", and the choir completed the first half with Martin Shaw's "With A Voice of Singing", The American folk song "Shenandoah", a fantastic arrangement of "When the Saints come marching in" and the very appropriate "Morte Christe" (When I survey the wondrous cross).
Chairman Gwyn Hughes interspersed the items with amusing anecdotes, which had the audience laughing,before the choir performed Robbie Williams "Angels", a Hungarian Dance Song "Dana Dana", and Enoch Sontana's "African Prayer" Debbie Hughes then returned to the microphone with "Love changes everything" from the musical" Aspects of Love", and "The pipes of Pan"
The final session from the choir included "The Anthem" from the musical "Chess", the renowned "World in Union", "There is nothing like a dame" from South Pacific and finally "Gwalhoddiad" (Invitation).
We are very grateful to both the Choir and Debbie,for such an enjoyable evening of music, and to the audience who supported us in raising much needed funds for St Andrew's Church.
