|Message:||My wife and I have just returned from a weekend in Lincoln, where we attended the concert in the Cathedral. What a fantastic performance by such a professional and dedicated choir. Listening to them singing is so emotional, it must make any Welsh person so proud.
We were invited to the reception after the concert, where we were pleased to hear an impromptu bout of singing by them, so we got twice the value for money, fantastic.
The choristers and their wives that we met over the weekend, are such lovely and down to earth people that you could ever wish to meet, and we look forward to another concert.

|Message:||Congratulations to Morriston Orpheus Choir on their Annual Concert peformance on Saturday 16th April.
The new venue of the Grand Hall of the new Swansea University Campus is an excellent building with very good acoustics. The choice of music made what was already a special evening a very memorable occasion. The three Welsh tenors enhanced the celebration with their blend of voices and humour. Many thanks Joy and "the boys" and we look forward to seeing and hearing you in Lincoln.

|Message:||Sue and John Fletcher - we were privileged to attend the concert at Birmingham Symphony Hall and the choir were absolutely marvellous together with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra - you were superb.
Then the following week we attend the Annual Gala concert in the new Great Hall at the Bay Campus in Swansea University. What an excellent auditorium and this was the first concert held at the venue.
Again the choir excelled and were brilliant!! Their special gusets were The Three Welsh Tenors, namely Aled Hall, Rhys Meirion and Aled Wyn Davies, all with different tenor voices but they blend together really well and were excellent.
Two really excellent concerts! Thank you boys!!

|Subject||Swansea 17th February 2016|
|Message:||Who ever heard of a rehearsal that you will remember for the rest of your life? But that is what happened to us on 17th February in Swansea. The warm friendly welcome from the gentlemen of the choir, and the breath-taking music they made under the baton of the indefatigable and inspirational Joy Amman Davies (let’s face it - there is nothing like a dame – nothing in the world), we will never forget. We packed a lot of goodies into our week east of the Irish Sea: the hilarious Midsummer Night’s Dream at RSC Stratford, the wonderful Ian Bostridge and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment at Bath, levitational evensong at New College Oxford, but (don’t tell them lest they be jealous) having “How Great Thou Art” sung specially for us by the men of the Morriston Orpheus Choir left the rest in the shade. Roll on your visit to Ireland, and thank you!|

|Message:||Many thanks to all concerned on Saturday evening,full of nostalgia and with me been born in 1934 and remembering the war years over the Midlands in particular the Coventry raids,a superb night of song, joy and the boys in super form,Les Ryan on the organ adds so much to the sound,I just hope he gets to play the instrument in symphony hall when we are taking a few non believers to the concert which I believe is now a sell out.best wishes Michael& Elizabeth Byard,Albrighton ,west Mids|

|Message:||To the choir, John, and Joy. We would like to thank you for the fantastic hospitality shown by you to my wife and I on Wednesday 4th Nov at your rehearsal. We have always liked listening to the choirs on the TV and radio but to hear you singing in the same room was an privilage for us. It was absolutely wonderful. But complimenting the evening was the friendliness of all and the invitation to hear you at LLanelli. We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of the performances. Once again thank you.
Alan and Margaret Delamere.

|Message:||My wife and I will always remember the experience of listening to the choir at the Last Post ceremony at the Menin Gate. The performance was incredibly moving and our only regret is that it could not have featured more pieces.
