I was pleased to find this photograph of the “Royal” Mountain Ash Glyndwr Male Choir. I am not sure when the photograph was taken: the “Royal” indicates it is post-1922, which I think could be safely inferred anyway, but by how many years is unclear. It certainly has a different character relative to the 1919 photograph that accompanied my earlier post, Glyndwr’s Mountain Ash Male Choir.
I intend to continue the task of completing a history of the early years of the choir under Glyndwr Richards’s charge, with the first American tour of 1908-9 as a suitable “end-of-chapter”. Unfortunately, ill-heath has put that, and so much else, on hold. In fact, I think I only posted three articles during the whole of 2015. If nothing else, I hope to improve upon that in the coming months, albeit less ambitiously than I would like.
