THEY may not be the biggest choir around, in terms of numbers, but they make up for it with the quality of their singing.
Côr Lleisiau Hardd have been around for 14 years, under the expert musical direction of Bridget Radford.
The annual concert at St Mary’s Church, Burry Port, deserved a bigger audience. If you weren’t there, then you missed a treat.
The ‘choir’ has two component parts – Lleisiau Hardd and Lleisiau Hardd Bach (affectionately known as the ‘Little Choir’).
The seniors weighed in at the start with the Karl Jenkins classic Adiemus, followed by the Robbie Williams hit Angels, Anthem from the musical Chess and Jar of hearts, the Christina Perri favourite. The ‘Little Choir’ captured everyone’s hearts with Here Comes The Sun and Lean On Me.
Cornishman David Bryan was the guest star and he entertained with Middle of the Moment from James and the Giant Peach and She Used To Be Mine, from the musical Waitress.
The second half opened with Only You (Yazoo), Need You Now (Lady Antebullem), You will be found from Dear Evan Hansen and Bring on tomorrow from Fame. Lleisiau Hardd Bach won over everyone again with The place where lost things go (Mary Poppins) and Shallow (A Star is Born) and a Welsh ensemble then took us on a journey through Ysbryd y Nos, Eryr Pengwern, Anfonaf Angel and Hafan Gobaith.
A Les Miserables medley wrapped up the evening in fine style. ROBERT LLOYD
