Extract taken from Wombourne Music Festival 2013 article written by Richard Hill for St. Benedict Biscop Church.
In the evening we had the delight of Wolverhampton Orpheus Male Voice Choir, and that was another pleasure. They were well rehearsed, effortless and with a narrator (compére) of clear diction and some wit. This was easy listening of the finest quality with such clear enunciation. The performance of ‘How Great Thou Art’ at the end of the evening was so well done.
