SubjectLinden Lea recording.
Message:Thanks for making the choir's early recording on a 78rpm record of "Linden Lea" available to hear. It is not dated on your site. It was released in February 1953 and reviewed by W A Chislett in the Gramophone magazine:

"The Morriston Orpheus Choir give us Hatton's When Evening's Twilight and Vaughan Williams's lovely Linden Lea (Col. DB3228). A very good but not massive toned choir and nicely pointed reading, with excellent enunciation. I should give this record full marks but for the fact that the choir has been placed a little too close to the microphone and the massed intake of breath is a little disturbing occasionally."

SubjectCheltenham Concert
Message:I was brought up in Swansea! - so I know the reputation that the Choir deservedly enjoys; but to see and hear the amazing concert in Cheltenham Town Hall was a huge highlight.
I have always sung with a Choir - at present Cheltenham Choral Society - but to sing without music, stand perfectly, watch the conductor every note, look as if you are enjoying yourself and then to change jackets for the second half - inspirational. Of course the best bit was singing the Welsh National Anthem, in Welsh, in Cheltenham Town Hall.
Congratulations to the conductor, the accompanist, the organist, and the soloist; he's got a good future.
Again therefore, every good wish for your future, come back again soon.

SubjectCheltenham Concert 13 June 2014
Message:Another wonderful concert which we all thoroughly enjoyed. 'Steal Away' was an absolute hit - the ability to sing so quietly and beautifully was very special and of course very difficult. We were particularly interested in your 'Fields of Athenry' which is now in our repertoire. It is a lovely arrangement. Hope we all meet again soon.

SubjectCheltenham concert
Message:My wife greatly enjoyed the recent concert in Cheltenham. The clear articulation of the choir was a highlight, and we were impressed by the skills also of the conductor and accompanists. The tenor's solo from "Les Mis" brought the house down -hope for more similar songs from him. Please next time can we have a higher proportion of musical items in English!

SubjectCheltenham TH concert
Message:What a pleasure it was to attend the concert last Friday in Chekltenham Town Hall. Even the opening (unaccompanied)English national Anthem set the scene of absolutely superb singing under Joy's direction. Lots of arrangements in their native tongue. "Hairs on the back of the neck" evening which reduced me to tears of joy. Thank you gentleman, Joy and Alice.

SubjectAnnual Concert at St Mary's Swansea
Message:What a treat we had listening to a first-class choir, soloist Gwawr Edwards and accompanists.Joy Amman Davies certainly knows how to draw the best out of her choristers. American Trilogy and Easter Hymn were simply the best. Alice Reed, David Doidge and Leslie Ryan were all superb and often when the organ accompanied it was quite overwhelming and at times emotional.Thank you for such an amazing evening of Welsh musical performance at its very best.

SubjectAnnual Concert 2014
Message:Through our family connection with the Orpheus, I have followed the choir for over 40 years. Like a fine wine they improve with age. The performance of the Easter Hymn and Steal Away, in particular, were well deserving of the standing ovation they received. Congratulations again to Dad (Roy Pugh) on becoming a Vice President. As a family we all know the committment and dedication Dad has shown - not forgetting the wonderful support and committment of my mother. Congratulations to all involved for a wonderful night.

SubjectAnnual Concert 2014
Message:Firstly I agree fully with the contribution made by the first gentleman on the guest book but also add that for me the higlhlight was hearing my favourite piece Y Tangnefeddwyr sung in its rightful setting,this piece always brings me to tears,those of you who attended the Lichfield cathedral concent on May 6th last year may remember that although it was a very sad evening With the passing of Salvatore I requested this item which Joy kindly opened the concert with,I shall never forget that evening having spoken to Alwyn during the interval, I asked if the choir had ever recorded it,he thought not and although I have purchased every CD and tape I cannot find it on any of them so that's the next challenge a new CD named "The Peacemakers ". Thanks for a great evening of superb singing and I look forward to seeing you all again a bit more local to us in Shrewbury in September.

Kindest regards to all. Michael Byard, Kingswood Albrighton,Shropshire
