Music

Minehead Male Voice Choir in action

We have over 120 songs in our library and always adding new ones. We don’t know all of them yet but we are working towards that goal.
Listed below is a sample of those we know and can perform almost at the drop of a hat!
We are always on the lookout for suitable additions to our library although it does take some time to learn the music AND the words as, like most other Male Voice Choirs, we do tend to sing without copies of the pieces at our concerts.

    Bring Him Home

    You raise me up
    You’ll never walk alone
    You’re just in love
