MAINTAINING THE TRADITION OF MALE VOICE SINGING

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

“There is not any Musicke of instruments whatsoever, comparable to that which is made of the voices of men, where the voices are good, and the same well sorted and ordered.”

These were some of the words of Norman Williams, one of Felling Male Voice Choir’s finest conductors, in his opening section of the first history of the Choir. This quotation is from William Byrd in his “Psalms, Sonets and Songs of Sadness and Piety” published in 1588. It is very appropriate to reflect as this is still true today when listening to the unique sound of male voices in concert. Felling Male Voice Choir, as they move towards their Centenary in 2020, are still classed as “leading ambassadors for male voice singing” across the UK and Europe.
