Bangor Cathedral Choir

On Sunday December 6th St. Tydecho Church was full for a concert of special music ‘From Advent to Christmas’ with Bangor Cathedral Choir under the leadership of their director of music Paul Booth with Martin Brown Cathedral organist accompanying. We were enthralled by the beautiful sound of the choir as they took us from Advent to Christmas with music from the early medieval period to the present day based on three themes – Preparing the Way, The Annunciation, and At the Stable.

In addition to the choir there were readings of works by T Llew Jones, Geraint Lovegreen, John Betjeman and Clare Bevan by church members, Anna Jones, Kate Ryder, Brian Hopewell and Jen Evans, and wonderful recitals on the organ by Martin Brown.

The audience joined in to sing three Advent hymns. This indeed was an evening to remember as we were spiritually prepared for Christmas here in Bro Cyfeiliog a Mawddwy through the magical sound of our cathedral choir.
Following the concert we all enjoyed mulled wine and refreshments prepared by church members in the Church Room. The Rev Roland, wardens and members of St.Tydecho would like to warmly thank everyone who supported the evening.

A total of over £1,500 was raised for church funds.

An Apology

In the October Newsletter I described the Singh family of Aberangell as Hindu. Of course they are in fact Sikh. Many, many apologies for this.
