The Fron Male Voice choir, which was formed more than 70 years ago, shot to the top of the classical charts in 2006 after releasing its first in what became a series of Voice of the Valleys albums.

Now the choir is about to release its latest album, Voices of the Valleys, Echoes, on February 26, just in time for St David’s Day.

It has also released singles from the album. The choir is based in the village of Froncysyllte between Chirk and Llangollen, also known for the Pontcysyllte Aquaduct.

It was formed to take part in the Llangollen International Eisteddfod which began after World War 2 to unite Europe and has continued to take part in the event.

But it was in 2006 when the manager of pop group Blue, Daniel Glatman, saw the choir at a wedding and helped it sign with Universal that Fron choir became an international success and went on to win a top Classic Music award.

With lockdown making community singing difficult the choir has put together some of the most popular male voice choir tracks from Welsh favourites and sacred music to songs from the West End and shows like West Side Story, The Greatest Showman and Les Miserables.

The new album, Echoes, is available to download from a number of online services and also available to buy from Amazon.
