Double Grammy award winning composer Christopher Tin joined us for this latest talk in our Maestro series from his home in Los Angeles. Christopher is a highly respected composer of concert music, film, and video game scores, including Baba Yetu, our first virtual piece.
The second talk in our Maestro series. Internationally renowned singer Sean Ruane talks about his journey from his early life in a small town in the north of England, onto the world stage as leading operatic tenor.
Salade de Fruits
Inspired by our recent Michael McGlynn ‘Master Series’ talk, a small group of choir members got together to do something a little different: a barbershop rendition of Salade de Fruits.
Hope you like it!
The first interview in our ‘Maestro Series’

A brave selection of 24 choir members took
on the challenge of producing this Virtual Choir
video as a Coronavirus lockdown project.
We chose Baba Yetu – the Lords Prayer,
in Swahili – from Christopher Tin’s classic
Civilisation IV soundtrack as our first virtual piece.
Stay safe, keep singing!
Our second Virtual Choir piece, this time with 40 of our members taking part!
This Jay Althouse arrangement of Marta Keens’ soulful composition is elegant in its simplicity and has become an anthem for many soldiers returning home.
Joining the Rossendale Male Voice Choir as Musical Director in 2015, Matthew has injected a new impetus into the choir and won the award for top conductor at the Cornwall International Male Choral Festival in 2017
Steeped in the 90 year history of the choir, he is the great nephew of the founder conductor, Fred Tomlinson. Michael made his debut as the Choir’s accompanist in 1969 at the Massed Bands Concert at Belle Vue in Manchester.
Charles joined the choir in 1987, singing with the First Tenors ever since. He is also the lead conductor of the Rossendale Festival Choir which is a mixed choir formed from members of the RMVC and the Rossendale Ladies Choir.
