More Information...

The Morriston Orpheus Choir, often referred to as the 'Ambassadors of Song', is probably the most travelled of the Welsh male voice choirs. To date, 32 overseas concert tours have been undertaken since 1965.

Our website is very popular with our supporters here in the UK and around the world and our secure on-line shop also includes music from prominent Welsh artistes who have performed with the Choir over the years at concerts and / or have competed in our annual MOCSA Young Welsh Singer of the Year Competition.

Individual songs from our latest CD 'Un Ydym Ni/We Are One' recorded under the Morriston Orpheus Choir Label can now be downloaded from our shop at 99p each. Also, this website has now been optimised for use on smartphones and tablets and facilities are available to download the individual songs to these devices.
In 1935 the landscape of the lower Swansea Valley was virtually unrecognisable from what it is today. Centuries of over- industrialisation, which had made Swansea the metallurgical capital of the world, had ravaged the lower Swansea Valley, leaving the valley a desolate place where green was conspicuous by its absence. The town of Morriston, sitting at the heart of this area, was to a large extent still dependent on heavy industry, in particular steel and tinplate. This heavy industry, however, coincided with a strong musical and cultural life centred to a great degree in the local chapels. Each chapel had its choir, most being capable of performing the great oratorios and choral pieces of the time. They were also mainly Welsh in language.
