Decibellas Women's Choir of Tarporley recently hosted a concert with Llangollen Male Voice Choir, to raise funds for St Luke's Cheshire Hospice.

Debellas Bunbury

The men's motto, "Cyfeillgarwch drwy Gan" ("friendship through song"), formed the theme for the evening with both choirs performing pieces from their own repertoires and then joining together for a rousing finale!
The concert was held in the beautiful St Boniface Church in Bunbury which, by 7:20pm had standing room only, with guests still arriving. In fact, there had been groups of tourists visiting the village earlier in the day who, having heard the choirs rehearsing, returned to enjoy the evening performance; truly friendship through song!
The evening began with both choirs and the audience singing Jerusalem. Cor Meibion Llangollen then performed a mix of traditional Welsh hymns including Calon Lan and Llanfair, as well as more contemporary pieces such as The Rose and Bring Him Home from the musical Les Miserables. Decibellas repertoire took the audience on a tour of the British Isles, from Scotland with pieces including Chilcott's The Skye Boat Song, via Yorkshire with Scarborough Fair to Medieval England with another Chilcott arrangement this time of an Old English poem, The Lily & The Rose.
Both choirs joined together to perform Steal Away, a spiritual, followed by the traditional Welsh folk piece, Ash Grove. Finally the audience and both choirs raised the roof, in a rousing rendition of Cwm Rhondda.

The High Sheriff of Cheshire, Bill Holroyd was a guest for the evening , as well as representatives from St Luke's Cheshire Hospice who joined the choirs and audience for a drinks reception in the venue after the concert.
Decibellas Chair Hazel Rowlands commented, "It was a hugely successful evening, raising over £1900 for St Luke's Cheshire Hospice who require £7500 per day to be able to offer their services free of charge to members of the local community. We'd like to thank the gentlemen of Cor Meibion Llangollen for crossing the border to join us as well as everyone who turned out in such huge numbers to support the event."
