Valley Of Song

Cliff Gordon's celebrated play Choir Practice is brought vividly to life in fifties British comedy classic Valley Of Song. Directed by Gilbert Gunn (Operation Bullshine, Girls At Sea), it stars some of British cinema's most beloved stars including Mervyn Johns (Scrooge), Clifford Evans (Curse of The Werewolf), and Maureen Swanson (A Town Like Alice).

Valley Of Song tells the story of hapless small town boy Geraint Llewellyn. Having spent five years in London, Geraint returns to the quaint Welsh village where he grew up to fulfil the role of choirmaster within the local church.

Having chosen Handel's Messiah for the choir's showcase piece, he inadvertently causes fierce rivalries to surface when trying to pick a soloist. The consequences of which are hilariously catastrophic and begin to affect the entire village. This choir may have the voices of angels, but they certainly don't have the patience to match. There are two young people who genuinely suffer through this state of affairs: Cliff and Olwen. They are in love but the feud threatens to tear them apart.
