2019 Tour to Barbados.

We are back

We have started back rehearsing after the Covid pandemic.  We meet at the Linden Christian Centre in West Cross on a Tuesday evening at 7:00 pm.  To comply with the Level 2 requirements the First and Second Tenors meet from 7:00 till 8:00 and the Baritones and Basses meet from 8:15 till 9:15.

New choir members are always welcome.  You don’t need to be able to read music as we learn everything by heart.  We are a friendly bunch and you will receive a very warm welcome with lots of help and advice if you join usWe have started performing at weddings and concerts so this is now a great time to join the choir.

Singing has many health benefits; it can relieve stress, improve lung function, develops a sense of belonging, enhances memory, to mention a few.  In normal times we go on a foreign Concert Tour every year.

Why not just pop in one evening and enjoy listening to us, you could even join in to see how you get on.

The Gwalia Singers were founded in 1966 and quickly gained the reputation of being a small, successful choir with a strong sense of 'belonging'. Although the years since have seen some big changes in the choir's circumstances, the essentials remain. We still draw our members from a wide range of backgrounds and geographical locations, we still enjoy success on the concert platform and we still like to feel that a Gwalia has three main priorities in life - his family, his work and the choir (in that order).


Why "Gwalia"?

Wales is one of the four countries that make up the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. Although officially a principality (the largest principality in the world), it has its own language (Welsh) and, since 1955, its own capital city (Cardiff). The word "Wales" comes from the plural of the old English word wealh, and literally means "foreigners". Latin forms of "Wales" include Wallia and Gwalia.

Did you know...

One of the most heavily requested records every Christmas in the USA is 'Stop The Cavalry'. However, the version requested is not the one by Jona Lewie that you may be familiar with. It is, in fact, the version recorded about a year later by the Cory Band with the Gwalia Singers. It is quite possibly the most popular song ever by an artist who never had a charted recording - single, album or otherwise. Unfortunately we don't have any copies for sale, but CDs can be purchased from, it can be played on Spotify and is also available for download via iTunes or Amazon.
