New Book Celebrating 50 Years of Pontarddulais Male Choir


Pontarddulais Male Choir’s first fifty years recalled in new book


2010 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the establishment of Pontarddulais Male Choir. Brothers, Sing On! is an account of the first fifty years of the choir and has been written by Eric Jones, the choir’s President to commemorate the event.


The author recalls the choir’s development; its Eisteddfod triumphs, overseas tours and televisual and recording highlights.


Eric Jones explained, “Firstly I wanted to write the book to celebrate the half centennial of the choir in 2010. But more than that, because there is so little written about choral tradition in Wales generally. There are hardly any books published which discuss one particular choir specifically. The consensus amongst music experts is that Pontarddulais Male Choir have managed to maintain extremely high standards for a number of years and that the choir, since it was established has been amongst the best in the field.”


Brothers, Sing On! is published by Y Lolfa in September 2010 and launched at Pontarddulais Rugby Club on Wednesday evening, 6th of October.
