The Minster Church Of St. Nicholas, Great Yarmouth, Saturday 8th July

I would like to tell you how much we enjoyed our evening at the Minster in Great Yarmouth when you joined the Chorus of St. Cecelia for their Summer Concert. It was an overwhelming evening. I purchased two of your CD’s which are giving me such a lot of pleasure (mainly whilst doing my ironing). Thankyou for bringing your outstanding sound for us all to share.  I truly hope Matthew Hardy accepts your invitation for a return event. We shall be the first to get tickets.

Norwich Cathedral, Friday 7th July 2017

Thank you for a wonderful concert last week at Norwich cathedral- such a pleasure and ‘free’! It was an oasis of joy and I especially enjoyed Morte Christe- one of my favourites. God bless your ministry in song both secular and religious- a lovely mix on the day.

Festival Concert, Albert Hall, Saturday 29th April 2017

Thank you Carlton Male Voice Choir. I thoroughly enjoyed it, you gave us a brilliant concert. The Albert Hall came alive, listening to your outstanding voices and the hard work shone through. Nottingham has indeed got talent –

Mavis Smith

An amazing evening -

Bryan Brownlow

It was just splendid, the best you have produced while we have been sponsors. We congratulate Ian Watts for his debut concert, what a start, we anticipate great things to follow. All your guests were great, special mention to Christopher Hill, what a talent. Thank you for inviting us, we feel most privileged -

Robert M Sansom, Chairman, Frank Key Group.

Absolutely stunning performance, so proud of you all –

Lorina Parker

Thank you all for a most enjoyable concert. I thought you produced a really good sound. In the opening piece “Speed your journey”, the dynamics were wonderful, what a super start! I really enjoyed your quiet singing it came over really well and with feeling. It was a good and varied programme, with a balance of traditional and more modern. It was obvious throughout that you had been working hard on your diction, it really paid off, well done! –

Linda Davies

I’m returning by train home, from a long weekend in Nottingham where the highlight and reason was to attend the Festival Concert. What a treat. The stage was an absolute picture adorned by the most vibrant and beautiful flowers. A perfect final touch to be enjoyed by everyone. The programme was entertaining and excellent in variety of choices and execution. I loved “the rooms” visited, a great idea. As always, beautiful singing of traditional pieces with clarity of notes, diction, sensitivity and excellent diction. The Lords Prayer was magnificent. As it built to the powerful “for thine is the kingdom” every hair I felt stand on end and its overall beauty and sincerity bought me to tears. I did enjoy the new style/music also and I am sure these will continue to grow in confidence and be sung with the same conviction. I felt that the whole concert was entertaining and slick and very polished. Finally, I had been told that there would be some changes and differences etc, and there were. However nothing that distracted from the hard work and quality of this –

Julie Pearson

This was an outstanding evening of music –

Dawn Parri-Sawdon

It was an absolute pleasure to sing with you and we all commented on the atmosphere and general feeling of camaraderie – it really made for one of the most enjoyable concerts we have ever performed -


Festival Concert, Albert Hall, Saturday 30th April 2016

Please would you pass on my Congratulations to the choir after a truly wonderful concert on Saturday. The Kanneh Masons were unbelievable for their ages, so amazing to watch, it’s so good to see young people so interested in music and so good that you gave them this opportunity to perform. Braimah was indeed a worthy winner of this years Music Makers award. I think the choir sang exceptionally well for Terry’s last concert at the Albert Hall he must be so pleased.

It was a lovely programme with many old favourites which are always so well received and applauded, it was very pleasing and entertaining, you are so professional on stage.

For those of you who knew Bob, I am sure he would have been absolutely delighted with your performance, perhaps he was listening, he certainly didn’t need to use his “laser!”

Well done everyone, you can indeed be very proud. Good luck for your forthcoming trip to Holland

Best Wishes,

Linda Davies

Just arrived home from concert. great night.fab.fab.fab.

Well worth travelling from Devon for. Another wonderful concert!

Sheila Jennings

(Tell My Father). Beautiful. Made me think of my dad. Mum was at the concert and enjoyed it very much.

Jillian Garner

Great concert, up there as one of the best. Terry, you did them proud, what a way to bow out!

Joan Miller

Wow, every one we spoke to, said the best yet, Terry if you see this I thought it was wonderful, a fitting tribute to your hard work with us, over the last two decades, thank you Terry, I can not put into words what you have done for us, our next M.D. will have a lot to do if he or she even equals what you have done, thanks again Terry, – one of the choir, speaking on behalf of many?

Mike Jones

Others have said it all with which I agree but as another friend said, when asked for her opinion, “I was ‘blown away’ and I agree. Well done one and all!

Enoch Price – Life Vice President

Festival Concert, Albert Hall, Saturday 25th April 2015

Please accept my apologies for taking so long to write to thank you for inviting me to your wonderful concert, attending on behalf of Sir John Peace. Barry and I were absolutely thrilled with the lovely evening of music making.

The Choir was on great form and the programme of music was most enjoyable and entertaining. I was very impressed with this year’s Carlton Music Maker, Matt Glendening, who made an excellent contribution to the enjoyment of the evening and the icing on the cake was the presence of the superlative Cantamus Girls Choir. The concerted items at the end of the programme were truly inspirational.

Please can you pass on my warm congratulations to Terry and the gentlemen of the choir, to Roger and Ann for their accompanying and Howard for his excellent compering.

Thank you again for your invitation, your hospitality and a memorable evening!

Wendy Start ,  Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire

Congratulations on a fantastic performance once again at the Albert Hall. We thoroughly enjoyed the programme and the choir did you proud. The bonus of Cantamus and their lovely voices really made the evening special and we especially enjoyed the performance by the joint choirs at the end of the programme. The inspiring performance by the truly talented Clarinettist Matt Glendening was superb. Thank you once again for a truly wonderful evening. Kind regards.

Bob and Val Ford

Congratulations on a first class concert last night. We always enjoy them and I’m not sure if it was the choice of programme or what but I thought last night’s was the best I’d ever heard the choir sing. I’ve never heard anything from The Pearl Fishers before, except the duet about the Goddess, and was under the impression that everything else was boring but I really enjoyed that item. Once again congratulations and roll on Christmas.

Elaine Proffitt

A brilliant concert. Well worth coming from Hartlepool once again. The performances from both Carlton MVC and Cantamus were superb. Must rate among your best ever Festival concerts.  …

Wally Henderson Hartlepool MVC

It was a highly enjoyable concert and will stick in the memory, for sure. The rest of our Radcliffe gang would kick themselves had they known what they missed.

Ritchie Davies (Public Relations Officer), Radcliffe MVC

Excellent concert. It’s not difficult to see why Cantamus have been world choir. Choral perfection. Oh and Carlton were pretty good as well!!!………………………………………..Tremendous concert! Well done to all concerned.

John Pritchard, President, Bestwood MVC

Best £12.50 I ever spent – fab night with both choirs. The whole night was fantabulous and I could sit through it all again.

Carol Wheatley

The choir are sounding better than ever. Cantamus were absolutely brilliant and breathtakingly emotional. Matt Glendenning – what an accomplished performance. By far the best winner of the Musicians Trophy to date. Rogers accompaniment was faultless as usual. Well done Terry and ALL the choir. As most of you know I now live in Devon and came a long way to be there. WELL WORTH all the travel.

Sheila Jennings

Please pass on my congratulations to the choir after another superb concert, really well done everyone. It was good to see a few new members I do hope they enjoyed the experience of singing in such a lovely venue.The clarinettist was faultless, although not my favourite instrument, it was a lovely sound, he was outstanding,  and a well deserved winner of this year’s award. Of course the Cantamus girls are always extremely good, amazing voices and control for their age, with a very entertaining second half. Your organisation of the event runs so smoothly, you put in a lot of much appreciated hard work. …

Linda Davies

I just wanted to say thank you for a great concert.  It was wonderful. Can’t see it getting any better!  ’Stay with me til the morning’ was even better than usual with Matt playing too.  It was a lovely evening.

Kay Radford

A wonderful evening of fabulous voices tonight by both choirs, lovely to hear two choirs together.


It was an honour to solo in the Albert Hall with Carlton MVC this evening. Well done to all my Cantamus girlies. Smashing ladies.

Eilish McDonald

I wasn’t too struck on the start of the programme- But it just got better and BETTER and BETTER. The Award winner was brilliant and the second half of the concert was to die for! The joint pieces came over spine tinglingly beautiful. Many thanks to all concerned, very well done. …

Mike Smith

Concert in Worcester Cathedral Sunday 8th June 2014

“The committee of the Basil D’Oliveira Foundation wish to thank the Carlton Male Voice Choir not only for sharing their music in this holy space but for inspiring us regarding their support of young musicians. As our foundation will be making available training to disadvantaged youngsters they could never normally receive, we can think of no finer legacy that ‘passing the baton’ on to the next generation. You have shown us how it’s done.”

Catherine Steele ( The Basil D’Oliveira Foundation)

Festival Concert, Albert Hall, Saturday 26th April 2014

Letter from the Mayor of Gedling
As Mayor of Gedling Borough, I would like to thank you for inviting me and my wife  Ann, the Mayoress, to the Carlton Male Voice Choir Festival Concert 2014 at the Albert Hall, Nottingham.
Once again this was another brilliant performance by the whole choir. We particularly enjoyed the renditions of “Benedeictus” and, appropriately for the 100th commemoration of the 1st World War, “ln Flanders Field”.
It is clear that the choir has extended their extensive repertoire. The amount of practice – both individually and together is clearly extensive to ensure that you meet the exacting standards you set yourselves.
It was very pleasing to hear lsata Kannaeh-Mason perform. What a prodigious talent she has. She is a deserving winner of the Music Makers Award, and we took pleasure in watching her receive the award.
We also greatiy enjoyed the performance by the “Siren Sisters” whose 1940′s renditions were clearly appreciated by the whole audience.
We hope to attend future performances of the choir as “civilians” after our term in office has ended.

Councillor Bob Collis, Mayor of Gedling

Letter from the Mayor of Mansfield
Just a line to thank you for the lovely evening Cheryl and I enjoyed on Saturday at the Carlton Male Voice Choir’s Annual Festival Concert at Nottingham’s Albert Hall.
We were most impressed by the Choir’s musical talent and those of the Siren Sisters.
Many congratulations on a wonderful evening – please pass on our thanks to Colin Bailey for inviting and hosting us and also the rest of the choir for entertaining us so magnificently.

Mayor Tony Egginton, Mansfield District.

Thank you for a really enjoyable concert at the Albert Hall last night! As ever, the choir were on top form. I especially enjoyed Terry’s arrangement of “How Can I Keep From Singing” – absolutely beautiful And a heartfelt thanks for the performance of my “In Flanders Fields” – very emotional.
A special word of commendation must go to Isata – a truly exceptional talent, who must surely have a great career ahead of her.

Rob Steadman

Typical audience reaction: “the best since the centenary concert in 2008. The choir sang with passion again last night.” Personally I thought it was top class. At lunchtime I (told Rick that I) thought the tenors (1st and 2nd) were holding the pitch brilliantly, and they then did it in the concert – all through!

John Collier

I thought the choir sounded as good as I have heard them, and with a new repertoire. That is impressive. The young music maker absolutely fabulous!! Huge congratulations to everybody!

Ken Millns

Congratulations on a brilliant concert last night. My sister and I were very touched when we read in the programme that you were singing for dad and Barry. They would both have loved it and been very proud. Unfortunately due to ill health mum could not be with us but she would like to thank you for the beautiful flower arrangement we were given for her.

Jillian Garner

Well done for Saturday night’s concert it was brilliant! The choir sounded amazing, they are sounding very strong and there were some beautiful songs that I hadn’t heard you sing before. My mum also really enjoyed it.

Laura Roberts

Great concert! Thanks!

Victoria Barlow

A card sent to the choir:

Just a little thank you. You are Brillo!

To everyone who makes Carlton Male Voice Choir what it is. Thank you for your fabulous concert on Saturday night at Trowell. I bought two tickets on Sat. morning, I found two friends who were very low in spirit. I suggested they should come to the concert which they did.  You all certainly uplifted their spirits; you all did them really good. Thank you. We especially liked the African Trilogy, it was great. Keep up the great work. Thank you.

Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed the Concert on Saturday.  There was a great mix of songs from the choir and we thought that your guest Laura Roberts had a beautiful voice.   The NYJO provided a contrasting but also a complimentary sound and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience.  We had a great evening. Once again congratulations.”

“What an amazing night last night was at the Houses 2 Homes concert! Many of the Bluebirds shed a tear and were awed by the most fantastic harmonies from the Carlton Male Voice Choir, it was a real privilege to perform alongside them. We are proud beyond belief to have been a part of the evening raising money for the Houses 2 Homes charity, we all sang from the heart and to finally stand at the end of the evening massed together singing Jerusalem followed by the National Anthem – a profoundly moving experience”.

Brass and Voices Concert, Palace Theatre, Mansfield on 12th September 2012

“As Deputy Mayor of Gedling Borough, I would like to thank you for inviting me and the Deputy Mayoress to the Brass and Voices Concert in Mansfield.
Having grown up in West Cornwall, which has a long tradition of Brass Bands and Male Voice Choirs, it was a pleasure to confirm that this tradition is alive and kicking in Gedling.
Singing is possibly the oldest form of group participation for pleasure, and it was quite clear the pleasure the members of the choir got from singing together and from entertaining the public with their talented performance.  It was quite clear from the standard of performance why the choir has been so successful.”

Bob Collis, Deputy Mayor of Gedling

St Andrew’s Church, Heckington, Lincolnshire on 5th May 2012

Festival Concert, Albert Hall, Nottingham on 21st April 2012

“Thank you very much indeed for the very warm welcome we received on the occasion of the Festival Concert on Saturday. It was a wonderful event and my husband and I enjoyed the concert very much indeed.
I congratulate the Carlton Male Voice Choir on a most successful and enjoyable evening and, in particular, the high quality of the singing, interpretation and presentation of the choir, under the expert baton of Terry Moore. It is extremely impressive that the choir had learned the majority of the programme this season and that they performed entirely from memory. This constant refreshing of the repertoire must be one of the secrets of the choir’s success, giving choir members continuing stimulation and challenge, and always offering enjoyable new programmes for it’s loyal audience.
Lastly, congratulations on the choir’s continuing initiative of presenting the Music Maker’s Trophy and Prize. Amanda Bruce is a very talented young woman and we thoroughly enjoyed her contribution to the concert, as we did the performances of Drum Blondes.”

Wendy Start, Deputy Lieutenant of Nottinghamshire

“We had a great time yesterday and really enjoyed the performance.  It was a pleasure to listen to such a varied programme and all the choir’s hard work really paid off.”

As well as the sum raised, we all had such a fantastic time due to both the quality of the singing and the choice of music.
My abiding memory will be of 60+ men wearing bright yellow jackets and waving teddy bears with gusto! What a lovely way to raise money for a worthwhile children’s charity.  Many thanks again.”

Sue Hulme

Trowell Parish Hall, Trowell, Nottingham on 4th February 2012

“On behalf of the residents of Cossall Village, we would sincerely like to thank all the members of the choir who were able to get to the concert, despite the dreadful weather [10 cm of snow].  The Concert was a great success and enjoyed by everyone.  We hope you will come back to Trowell next year to perform for us again (but not in winter).  The total raised towards the renovation of Cossall Old School was £1,483.80.  Thank you again Carlton MVC.”
