Album Notes
This recording commemorates the 40th Anniversary of the Hong Kong Welsh Male Voice Choir, believed to be the only choir of their type in Asia, who made their debut performance at the Hong Kong St David’s Society Ball in March 1979. In the early days, most members were Welsh expatriates, but nowadays the Choir’s make-up reflects Hong Kong’s cosmopolitan nature with members drawn from a dozen different nationalities. Likewise their repertoire, while still featuring a number of rousing Welsh hymns, now spans a wide musical genre from Mozart to the Bee Gees and Queen, and languages from Latin to Chinese and even Swahili.

The Choir remain purely amateur and many of their performances are for charity fundraising purposes. Besides headlining more than 20 events in Hong Kong each year, they make annual visits to Thailand and the Philippines and have also performed regionally in Mainland China, Malaysia and Vietnam. They have also ventured further afield to sing at such prestigious venues as London’s Royal Albert Hall (three times) and Sydney Opera House.

Musically, the Choir continue to go from strength to strength under current Musical Director Colin Touchin, and are marking the momentous 40th Anniversary year by appearing at the world-famous Llangollen International Eisteddfod for the first time.
