|Subject||Last night at St David's Hall|
|Message:||Having attended your superb concert at All Saints Oystermouth last month, I was thoroughly looking forward to hearing you again at St David's Hall Cardiff for the concert on 14 Dec.
If I may, I have some observations which I am sure would be echoed by many in the audience: the concert was far too long, the children sang too many songs in very simple arrangements, the comperes added nothing to the concert and the Morriston Choir (which many of us had come specially to hear as the 'headline' act) sang just 6 songs in the three hours! I felt short changed.
On the plus side the talented Lovell Jones brothers were a delight, the BTM Band played very well and when we actually got to hear the famous Morriston Orpheus it was a masterclass in choral perfection. Congratulations to you all and thank you.

|Subject||Re:Age Concern Concert,|
|Message:||My wife Ann and myself started our Christmas festivities early this year with a superb evening at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama In aid of Age Concern.Though slightly depleted in numbers the Orpheus gave their usual polished performance.Well supported by the Howell Girls School choir singing christmas favourites.The rendition of Rudolph the red nosed Reindeer on the harp by Ben Griffiths was excellent.2012 MOCSA winner Tenor Trystan Llyr Griffiths delighted the audience with Questa o quella & Because sang in Welsh.The Orpheus accompanying him in I'll Walk with God.Trystan looks assured of a bright future.|

|Subject||All Saints Oystermouth Concert|
|Message:||The Morriston Orpheus concert was a huge success and a real heart-warming treat on a cold November Saturday evening! I enjoyed every minute - first class singing, conductor, pianists, organist and two delightful young soloists Holly-Ann Lloyd and Joseph Gorvett who are going to make quite an impression in the music world I am sure. Well done to the organisers for promoting young talent.
I thought that the choice of choir numbers was excellent, a lovely variety and how appropriate that the World War songs were performed at this time of year. Congratulations to the director Miss Joy Ammand Davies who controlled the singing so well and achieved a rich blend of voices, very impressive especially in the very quiet moments and those grand climaxes which filled every part of the church with passion and magic!
You know, it was a shame that the music had to come to an end. And before I sign off I want to say it was refreshing that the programme was generously given out free of charge to everyone.
