|Message:||It was with sadness that we had the message that Joy is giving up the position of Musical Director. We have known Joy as accompanist and MD over the 30 odd years we have supported the choir and it will be strange not to see her "up the front". We hope that she will feel able to attend future concerts as a member of the audience but in the meantime we wish her well in her future endeavours.

|Subject||The Holy Night recording|
|Message:||Lady Joy and the wonderful Choristors of The Morriston Orpheus Choir.
When we received the Holy Night recording,it was the most extraordinary revelation.
The meticulous planning and timing to deliver a unique and world class rendering of this totemic sign of the Christmas Season was gigantic.
It will go down as a major moment in the glorious history of the choir. Every member of the choir should be proud. It was both humble and magnificent.
Sheer joy to anyone who is privileged to hear it.
Use it globally to confirm that The Orpheus is THE force in Choral performance.
I have forwarded the recording to dozens of friends, who have been so moved by it.

|Subject||Impressive male chorus!|
|Message:||Hello, all of Morriston Orpheus Choir. I am a senior chorus boy living in Tokyo, Japan.
I listened to your excellent music on YouTube. Really great! "Myfunwy" was the first song I came to know your choir. Beautiful male voice harmony sounded like sacred church music. I like "you raise me up" sung at the coast, too. Now "You'll never walk alone" with online chorus impresses and encourages me very much.
Morriston is located in Swansea, Wales, isn't it? I wonder how you have such a great choir in non big city. Thank you for your activities with heartwarming chorus. I will enjoy your music on YouTube for a long time.

|Message:||What a wonderful day we had celebrating the wedding of our daughter Alys to Ben Eaton in Craig Y Nos Castle, Abercrave on February 21.
The hit of the day was the singing of this terrific Welsh choir who welcomed our new Essex family to Wales.
You made a very special day more memorable by your singing in this magical setting.
Thank you again.

|Message:||We were lucky enough to sit in on a choir rehearsal last Wednesday 12th February. What a very special evening that was. 40 years on and I still feel Swansea is "home" despite living in England since 1979! The hymns tou sang brought back so many childhood memories of chapel singing. Just beautiful. Thank you for making us so very welcome. We will definitely be back.|

|Message:||I live in the US, but found online a vintage recording of the Morriston Orpheus Choir, under the direction of Ivor E. Sims, that includes a pristine a capella version of All Through the Night.
For someone born far away from Wales who still feels the depths of my Welsh ancestry, this is an indescribably sweet discovery. Imagine my delight to find that your lovely music continues to flow!
Please keep singing. It matters more now than ever.

|Subject||Memorial Service for Huw Madoc-Jones-Jones|
|Message:||Just a short note to congratulate the Choir on their singing throughout the Service and providing a moving musical tribute to a remarkable man. I walked into the Calon Lan Centre feeling quite low at the passing of yet another huge figure in the history of ‘The Orpheus’ , however the celebratory tone was set by the family eulogies and the singing complemented this perfectly. A humbling and uplifting experience. RIP Huw and thankyou Joy and all the choristers.|

|Subject||Rehearsal night 1/7/18|
|Message:||My son was over from San Francisco with his family and wanted to give his 8 year old daughter an introduction to some Welsh culture. At his suggestion, we attended the rehearsal last Sunday. We knew that this choir was superb, but the evening exceeded our expectations by some margin. A pleasure to listen to, not to mention dynamism of the director of music. The welcome afforded made the evening even more special. Thanks to all concerned.|

|Message:||Can we thank all those involved in the Annual Concert last Saturday, 16th June, for a really special evening, it was great.
We were very sad, however, to learn of the passing of several choristers who, in our 30 years of supporting the choir, we considered our friends.
Congratulations to the new choristers and we hope that they get as much pleasure from being in the choir as we do listening.
