Songs from the First World War, arranged by Conductor Emeritus, Dr. Alwyn Humphreys were sung for the first time by the Choir in public.
Introducing the concert, Rev'd Canon Keith Evans mentioned how appropriate these songs were at this time of year and mentioned that just behind the Choir was the beautiful Rood Screen of Welsh Oak, installed in the Church as a permanent memorial to the 98 Mumbles men who perished in World War One.
