It’s fair to say our concert on Saturday 6th May, at the beautiful Holy Trinity Church, in Folkestone, was a resounding success. ‘Spine-tingling’ was mentioned several times by the audience! We received a great review which will be included in the June edition of the church’s magazine – thank you Sid for that and the photo!
‘Snowdown Colliery Male Voice Choir is the last remaining colliery choir in Kent, and we were fortunate to be able to hear them perform in Holy Trinity Church on 6th May.
The choir’s repertoire ranged from folk songs to such traditional favourites as ‘Cwm Rhondda’ (but sung in English!) There were a number of arrangements of songs from West-End musicals, and also included some from ‘Les Miserables’.These were sung with such feeling and emotion that a number of members of the audience were seen to be close to tears.
The evening flew past; nobody wanted it to end, but fortunately the choir were persuaded to treat us to an encore, which was followed by prolonged applause.
Hopefully the choir will be able to return again, in the near future to delight us further, and for their part members of the choir expressed their appreciation for being able to perform in such a splendid venue.’
