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 stupendous performance.

Many said how beautiful the famed male choir’s version of the famous song was, while others commented on how it had reduced 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 to God to preserve the life of another man.

Recorded during 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 will ever hear.

Tears

From the plaintive piano opening to the richness of tone and the warmth of those massed male voices it’s a wonderful, standout version of the musical standard.

Many of the comments on Facebook reflected the stunning performance and the emotion it generated in those watching.
