Festival of Male Choirs (Apeldoorn)

Festival Programme

May 11/12th 1990


We welcome you to this great Festival of Male Voices, the biggest of its kind to be held in Europe. It brings together choirs of Wales and of the Netherlands and unites them in song and in companionship.

The Welsh bring with them songs of their homeland, many sung in their own language and drawn from that rich tradition of male voice music and choral singing which has justly earned Wales the title of ‘Land of Song’. The Dutch choristers delight us with songs of many kinds and in so doing display an impressive variety of styles and a mastery of languages.
