I was one of the ladies singing in the concert on Saturday night. I just wanted to send a message for you to pass on please to your amazing choir that having only been singing with Orpheus for the last year, it was one of my best choir experiences so far so a big hank you!! Your repertoire was superb and I will never listen to Burt Bacharach in the same way! I don’t think those of us who attended the Woodmans Arms to join you in a drink afterwards will ever forget the impromptu rendition of Up Town Funk, Rythym of Life etc. Nor will the barmaid and the customers on Saturday night! Bound to make local headline news! A special thanks to Mark, Kelvin, Justin, and many others (apologies I cannot remember all the many names) who entertained us at the bar. A great fun group.

Greetings from Ireland and remembering a memorable night in the Portmarnock Hotel and Golf Links. From Gerry Canavan, Loose Chipings and the DCD Dancers!!

Fantastic concert last Saturday! That was definitely the best non-professional choir that I’ve heard. Dad is a big Laura Wright fan so we bought the tickets for him for fathers day, but we really enjoyed the whole repertoire – really good choice of programme and so well performed. The kids really enjoyed it too because they both sing in choirs.

The performance of the choir on Saturday was excellent, I will never forget the last song which was very moving. Please thank the choir and Mark for a really memorable evening.

What a wonderful evening we all had last Saturday evening. Everyone to whom I have spoken has nothing but praise for the skill of the gentlemen and the excellence of the evening.

With the warmth of the singing of the St Edmundsbury Male Voice Choir in Rougham Church one almost forgot that the heating system was not working.

Well articulated – a vital and communicative performance – you made good use of your ‘drunken’ opportunities.

An impressive sight, followed by a warm integrated sound.

One of the most spine-tingling sounds in music is that of a large male voice choir singing mezza voce’ as demonstrated by St Edmundsbury Male Voice Choir.

Ann Livett, Bury Free Press November 1989


St Edmundsbury Male Voice Choir’s debut was truly impressive, having already achieved a creditable standard even in so short a time. The singers range in age from 14 through to several senior citizens and their obvious enjoyment in what they were doing shone through right from the start.
