Please try and make at least two rehearsals, if you possibly can.

Please bring a music copy of Hymns and Psalms if you have one. We’ll run through some of the hymns as well.

Try and let us know how many will be coming. Ring Simon Oram on 01495 740483


We will be learning:-

Rutter – The Lord Bless You and Keep You

(If you have a copy of it, bring it along. If you don’t, don’t worry, copies will be provided. )

 Plus two very simple chants:-

Iona Chant – We Walk His Way

Taizé Chant – Stay With Me


Calling all young people!!

Come along on Saturday 20th February to Llanyrafon and learn a fab new song for the occasion.


One of the hymns chosen for the Big Sing has eight verses. It is HP814 ‘For All the Saints’, a well-known hymn. What we would like is if each section could take one verse each of the hymn and then join in together for the last verse. It would be a good idea to practise your verse during the next few weeks, just to make sure it goes well. We have split the hymn as follows:-        

            Verse 1 – Abergavenny cluster

            Verse 2 – Blackwood cluster

            Verse 3 – Abersychan, Blaenavon and Cwm

            Verse 4 – Pontypool cluster

            Verse 5 – Ebbw Vale and Tredegar cluster

            Verse 6 – Abertillery cluster

            Verse 7 – Cwmbran cluster

            Verse 8 – All together.
