Please come along to our Open Evening, on Saturday 1 October at 7.30pm, at Radcliffe Methodist Church. Hear us before we embark on our trip to the Royal Albert Hall for an evening that will include a choral workshop, for those keen to discover more about and try male voice singing.
See Events Diary for information on future performances.
The trip was a fantastic success and we have plenty of photographs
to share. You can also watch a collection of concert videos from the tour on our Watch and Listen page
The Choir has rolled its collective sleeves up, and is getting down to the business of learning a plethora of new material for the Royal Albert Hall, in October 2016. We have additional rehearsals twice a month, now, and even homework to get on top over during our summer recess.

Lark Hill Village – Sunday 20 March 2016
It was great to be out and about, once again, following a pretty intensive rehearsal schedule post-Christmas. We were able to blood several new soloists and performed several of our new Welsh pieces, for the first time. Lark Hill was a fabulous and welcoming venue and we hope to return for another concert in the future.
Christmas Charity Concerts 19 December 2015
The Choir would like to thank all of our fellow performers, sponsors, advertisers, and attendees for helping the Choir in delivering 2 highly enjoyable and successful charity concerts, just before Christmas. Once again, we were complemented by top quality performances from the Blidworth Welfare Band and the Radcliffe Junior School Choir. We are also most grateful to our President, Rt Hon Ken Clarke CH PC QC MP, for compèring the evening concert, once again, but special mention must go to Radcliffe’s new double act, Clare Allsopp and Justin Starr (Head and Deputy of the Junior School) who took on compèring duties for the first time during the matinee concert. The good causes (the St Mary’s Church Roof Renovation Project and the Methodist Church Regeneration Project) will each receive in excess of £1600, raised from ticket sales, advertisements and fundraising as a whole.
An amazing sample of Radcliffe on Trent Male Voice Choir in full voice! Little Innocent Lamb
A cappella – A standard of the choral repertoire, this setting has a gentleness and an infectious inner rhythm that sings with honesty and clarity directly to the heart.(arr. Marshall Bartholomew)
A rendition of The Peacemakers in St Mary’s Church, Radcliffe-on-Trent, 07 August 2014.
Waldo Williams, a Pembrokeshire-born poet, wrote Y Tangnefeddwyr, translated as The Peacemakers, in 1941, after witnessing the bombing of Swansea which was targeted by the German Luftwaffe on three successive nights in February that year. The Croydon Male Voice Choir have some excellent background on their website: http://www.croydonmalevoicechoir.co.uk/2010-11-21-14-37-30
Although this piece is set in WW2, we thought that its mood and content fitted with the WW1 theme.
