Pontarddulais Male Choir - Hearts and Voices

Pontarddulais Male Choir - Hearts and Voices

The choir was formed in 1960 under the late Noel Davies MBE, the choir’s conductor until 2002. Clive Phillips, the then accompanist for the choir, took over the baton and has since led the choir to five National Eisteddfod wins, a first at Llangollen International Eisteddfod and twice winnersof the Choir of the Festival at the National Eisteddfod. The choir has asserted itself as a most credited ambassador of Welsh male voice singing. The choir has achieved prominence through a record sixteen ‘first place’ at the Royal National Eisteddfod of Wales and two first places at the Llangollen International Eisteddfod. In 2004 the choirachieved the ‘double’ by winning the male choir competition at both the Llangollen International Eisteddfod and the National Eisteddfod at Newport, where the choir was awarded the prestigious title Choir of theFestival. In the adjudication Brian Hughes, the adjudicator, said,
Their mastery of choral technique is sure and their imagination at all times on fire. This is the best singing of male choirs I have heard for many years. At the National Eisteddfod in Llanelli in 2014 they achieved their sixteenth win. This was the fifteenth successive win for the choir.

This is how the choir was described by the adjudicators:
This is a choir that showed detailed planning and understanding of the different styles that were chosen in the programme – such as clear and concise wording and an attacking purity of phrasing.
