Dr Sydney Northcote recognised Felling Male Voice Choir’s musical director, Tom Mearis:

“T. H. Mearis was of the noble lineage of the really great choral conductors of our time. To his excellent musicianship he brought a warm and vital imagination, an unerring sense of style and a thoughtful humanism. One knew that the splendid choral discipline which characterised his choir was born of affection as well as authority. The high standard of technique which he demanded was, however, not an end in itself. It was the means whereby he accomplished a sincere musical eloquence which was at once artistic and arresting.”
