In the summer of 2007, a group of men in Marshfield, South Gloucestershire, got together as a makeshift choir in support of a charity event. Most had not sung before, except in the shower. And so, cajoled by Welshman Geraint Evans and enthusiastically directed by Laurel Pyne, the Marshfield Male No-Voice Choir was born.We've come a long way since and feel confident enough to have dropped the 'No' in our name.
The choir now under the wing of musical director Hilary Newman, who has taken over from Deryck Hanchett, with accompanist Sarah Bartlett, has 20 or so regular members and has built a repertoire of about 40 songs - a stirring mix of traditional and modern favourites.
