bringing music to life



 Your Professional Choir

Led by our creative Musical Director Matthew Nash and talented Accompanists, Jane Coles and Llinos Jones, all professional musicians, our choir of some 50 strong accomplished choristers deliver a sound that is uplifting, rich and full with four-part harmonies stretching upwards from the bottom basses to the top tenors.

We’d love to perform for you, so please do take a look at our repertoire and some of the great reviews received from our happy clients.

Our repertoire is varied and extensive with songs suitable for every occasion. Naturally, it includes many well-loved traditional Welsh hymns, favourites selected from the world of opera and musical theatre, spiritual and gospel music with a number of stunning new arrangements of popular current chart hits.  Just to add … our choristers have gained more than a smattering of Spanish, French and Italian enabling them to perform a select number of songs to perfection!

Why not buy one of our CDs?  We’re confident you’ll like what you hear!

Musical Director

matthew nash


BA (Hons), MA


Matthew is the professional public face of the choir and provides inspirational leadership and motivation for the music team and choristers.  Withan outstanding talent for musical detail and exceptional conducting, choir training and vocal coaching skills, he is responsible for selecting appropriate musical pieces to ensure the choir is fully prepared, confident and able to deliver exceptional performances.

Studying music at the University of Bristol, Matthew majored in performance and composition and was an assistant tutor to Dr Glyn Jenkins, teaching harmony to undergraduates. Whilst at University, Matthew received piano tuition from International concert pianist Raymond Clarke, and has performed at The Barbican, London. He graduated from the University with two music degrees, BA, Hons (First Class) and MA (Distinction).

Also an accompanist, Matthew played piano for Llanharan RFC Songsters, Cowbridge Male Voice Choir, Bristol Cabot Choir and the University of Bristol Choral Society and has also accompanied for Nigel Perrin (The Kings Singers), also teaching piano and vocal tuition from home.

With a talent for writing music, his compositions and arrangements have been performed in various venues across the UK. Significant compositions include a commission for Piano, Violin and Clarinet Trio for the professional ensemble ‘Gemini’, and two large scale works for Orchestra and Chorus one of which ‘Nightingales’ received its UK premiere in 2018.

Having assumed the role of Musical Director for Llantrisant Male Choir in March 2013, Matthew continues to enjoy the challenge of delivering innovative ways of taking the choir from strength to strength and motivating members, writing modern arrangements to keep the repertoire fresh, current and relevant and regularly conducting a varied programme of  performances at venues across the UK.

Introducing …

Siwan Henderson

Mezzo Soprano

Siwan is an accomplished Mezzo Soprano and a talented actor who regularly performs in concert with the choir. Siwan has kindly penned a few words below on the difference our support has made to her career. It gives us great pleasure knowing we gave Siwan a helping hand during the early stages of her professional career and wish her every success for the future. We look forward to the next time we perform together.


“Llantrisant Male Voice Choir have given me the most wonderful performing opportunities over the last few years. I left school wishing to pursue a career in Musical Theatre but felt I was not ready to audition for London drama schools. I needed some more solo experience as a singer to boost my confidence and this is where the choir helped me.

I have sung in numerous concerts with the choir including the Crecy concert in Llantrisant along with concerts in Dinas Powys and most recently at the Bethel Baptist Church, Pontyclun. These experiences helped me to grow enormously as a singer and the following year I went on to study a degree in Musical Theatre at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts, London.

Llantrisant Male Voice Choir have been so supportive of my career and I am so grateful to them for allowing me to be a part of their musical family”

Thank you all,
