Michael McGlynn

The first interview in our ‘Maestro Series’

Our MD Matthew Thomas interviews the Irish producer & composer Michael McGlynn.

Hosted on Zoom, we enjoyed an hour of insightful conversation and choral craic, followed by Q&A.

Baba Yetu

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!

Homeward Bound

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.

Stay safe, keep singing!

The Valley of Song

…is how the Rossendale Valley in south east Lancashire is often described and it’s the home of The Rossendale Male Voice Choir.

Founded in 1924, by the late Fred Tomlinson MBE, who took a group of local singers and moulded them into one of the country’s finest male voice choirs. Winning many competitions and festivals, including the International Eisteddfod in Llangollen. Sharing a love of singing and music-making not only drives us to do our very best in the concert hall or in competition, but also generates strong personal friendships between members.

As you’ll have gathered, we’re nearly 100 years old!

If you want to be part of that very exciting milestone, please get in touch. Whether it’s for a concert which will have an extra special atmosphere, sponsorship, media interest (including radio & TV), or to be a member of the choir through that important anniversary, drop us a line.
