In 2016 BMVC was approached to provide the backing track to an advertisement being created to promote a local brewery – Glamorgan Brewing Co. – who are based in Llantrisant. The advertisement is targeted specifically at web and social media channels so is not expected to be seen on mainstreamTV – the choir sang a song called ‘O Gymru’ (Oh Wales!) which is a beautiful Welsh song about a passionate love for Wales.
To see the advertisement, called ‘Lifeblood’, click here to go to site of Gray Hughes, the agency responsible for creating and producing it.
Singing is good for you – health studies show
Please click HERE to a link from a recent article in the Daily Telegraph, that provides more proof, if it was needed, that being an active member of a male voice choir is good for your health and general well-being.
Please click HERE to link to another medical study from Tenovus (published on the Science Daily web site in April 2016) that shows that singing for just one hour causes positive physiological changes in people affected by cancer.
So…got a spare hour?
