When Treorchy Male Choir posted a video on Facebook of the choir performing a beautiful version of Bring Him Home from Les Misérables, they were inundated with messages from people praising their prodigious performance.
Many commented on how beautiful the famous male choir’s version of the famous song was, while others commented on how it brought them to tears.
“Bring Him Home” is a song from the popular Broadway musical, which is performed by the main character, Jean Valjean. In the musical, Valjean pleads with God to preserve another man’s life.
Recorded at a concert at St. Michael’s Church in Tidworth, Wiltshire, it has so far had 20,000 views and over 1,000 likes.
And it’s not hard to see why. Even by the choir’s brilliantly exacting standards, it’s one of the most glorious versions you’ll ever hear.
From the plaintive openness of the piano to the richness of tone and warmth of those massaged male vocals, it’s a wonderful and remarkable take on the musical standard.
Many comments on Facebook reflected the stunning performance and the emotion it generated in those watching.
