Choir Cyclists Join with Llandovery choir for Afterglow

About 20 choristers from the associated cycle club of Caldicot Male Voice Choir made their way from Caldicot to the beautiful, historic town of Llandovery, Carmarthenshire to make a few sponsored cycle rides around the area to raise funds for St David’s Hospice on the weekend 5th to 7th July 2024.

The highlight of the weekend was to meet up with members of Llandovery Male Voice Choir at the King’s Head Inn in the town centre for a session of ‘Afterglow’ informal singing thoroughly enjoyed by all.

The patrons were treated to a number of joint renditions, including among others, of Rachie, Annie’s Song, Let It Be Me, Cwm Rhondda, an amazing version of Anfonaf Angel never before sung by Caldicot at an afterglow, Eli Jenkin’s Prayer, Gyfri’r Geifr (Counting the Goats – sung at speed), O Gymru, Caldicot’s Down Among the Dead Men, My Grandfather’s Clock, Lily of the Valley with Caldicot’s musical director Sian Hatton taking the solo part and of course two versions of Calon Lan.

To close the evening both choirs and patrons alike joined together with an amazing, rousing rendition of Hen Wlad fy Nhadau followed by a tumultuous, appreciative round of applause, cheers and standing ovation.

The joint singing was hugely appreciated by all. demonstrated by the generous contributions made to the St. David’s Hospice charity by all who were present at a box collection.

It was wonderful to meet up with another choir from the fraternity of Welsh Male Voice Choirs to share an evening of joint singing as part of Welsh culture.
