Three words; tradition, success and charity, reflect the choir’s illustrious past and present. Only three Musical Directors in 70 years; choir members with over fifty years’ service. Cornish Choir’s Federation membership and support from the beginning. Awards at numerous music festivals, invitations to sing with other choirs countrywide and audience feed-back. Over the years, the choir has raised many thousands of pounds for a wide range of good causes, these have included:
2016 Trophy collection

St. Stythians Male Voice Choir - A Brief History, written by Stan Stephens and produced by David Hutson was published in January 2008.
The book traces the history of the choir, insofar as we know it, from 1913. The names of almost 170 members of the Choir since 1947 are included in an appendix.
It is now out of print but it remains a useful source of our history.
