Subject: CONCERT

The day had arrived for our concert with mousehole mVC Sunday 19 May 2013. The weather was good, they arrived about 5pm and were welcomed into St James Church Hall. The girls had been feverishly baking, making sandwiches and an assortment of all sorts of different foods. Lots of lovely cakes and of course the cups of tea and coffee. There were 60 men in the Choir plus friends and family who had come with them. We went round to have chats with the people.

As the weather was so nice some of the MVC went down for a walk to the Ferry, just to get some fresh air after being stuck on the coach.

We all had a photocall outside the Church with Paul Roper before the concert. The church was filled to capacity looking forward to a good evenings entertainment. They certainly had that.


The Torpoint Lady Singers started the concert. They sang Gonna Build a Mountain. Wanna Feel my Love. The Rose and our new piece Rejoice that the Lord has arisen.

Then the Baccas Four who sang Hello Mary Lou and Peters Choice.

Mousehole MVC follwed by singing Let There be Light. Ave Maria. He Aint half heavy. Mill Mud. Deus Salutus. Instead of half time we all sang Guide me oh thou great Redeemer.

Starting the second half TLS sang Everythings Coming Up Roses. Three songs from Oliver. Softly as I Leave You. Round the Riverside.

Then the Baccuss Four sang The Creation.

Mousehole follwed by singing The Star of County Down. You Raise Me Up. Sailors Chorus. Bring Him Home. Anthem for which they got a standing ovation. Well deserved.

Mousehole MVC was formed in 1909, there are over 80 men in the Choir ranging from 16 to 88. They
come from all over the West Country and come from all different backgrounds.

After the Mousehole MVC gave a hearty impromptus concert at the torpoint mosquito sailing club

where we continued our socialising till 22:40hrs. when the Coach was due to leave from St. James for their return journey of 80 miles to Mousehole.
