Here is part of a Guestbook entry written by Nigel Jones, a Vice-President of the Choir:

A Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful evening.
The ingredients: A truly magnificent 900-year-old Cathedral; The Royal Household Calvary Military Band; The Morriston Orpheus Male Voice Choir and nearly one thousand paying audience. Plus, a wonderfully decorated Christmas tree!
This was a formidable combination that delivered one of the truly unique, unforgettable Orpheus evenings. It was very, very special.
The setting of Ely Cathedral is awe inspiring. So much British history, so much breath taking inspired stone mason architecture and tracery and as a matter of fact, the third longest nave in the country. 
This is the rightful platform for The Orpheus. A world class setting, performing alongside a world class Military Band; entertaining an appreciative, informed listener.
The opening with The Trumpeters of the Household Cavalry was spell binding. Heard in so many different settings, but it was here and now, and with our choir. Seriously exhilarating.
