Tom Mearis, Felling Male Voice Choir’s musical director was praised by Dr Herbert Howells:

“The death of Mr Mearis means a loss to those who like myself, have had the privilege of sitting in judgement upon him and his illustrious choir on so many memorable occasions. It is true to say that with the voices and temperaments and loyalty of the men he so lovingly bent to his musical will, he fashioned an instrument of power and refinement. This he did to quite an unusual degree, with skill, devotion and impeccable taste.”
