Only Men Aloud wins

Congratulations to Only Men Aloud!, the male ensemble from Cardiff, Wales, who this weekend won the highly successful BBC show Last Choir Standing. It is most exciting to see a young group of singers build upon the great tradition of Welsh male choirs and add a modern and personal element to the genre. The Welsh have always been famous for singing which is very much embedded in their culture. Plus the Daily Telegraph (UK) reports today that the BBC show has helped spark a "a renaissance of choral singing" and that the number of groups joining the National Association of Choirs has risen by nearly 20 per cent in the last two years.
