Westminster choir wins at Llangollen

Congratulations to The Westminster Chorus who has won the coveted Pavarotti Award and the title of Best Choir in the World at the recent Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod in Wales. This is no small feat as Wales is the land of male chorus where they take their singing very seriously indeed. Originally formed by miners in the numerous coal mines in the region the Welsh choirs are acclaimed for their male singers. Tom Jones is a well known example of a the the Welsh singer as was one of my favorites the marvelous Harry Secombe.

I LOVE the softness in all your voices, and especially the expressions as you sing! The softs are tremendous, which sounded like most of the song you did (Jeremiah) that I just heard. I would LOVE to have a recording/CD as soon as you have made one (or more!). I sing with Adelines in PA, and know just how much support singing softly takes. That was incredible! And, many congratulations to you all for the Pavarotti Award. It is well-deserved. Lisa T 'bari'
