Iris Williams - Y Caneuon Cynnar / The Early Recordings
Twelve great tracks recorded by the renowned singer in the 60’s and 70’s, including her memorable version of Amazing Grace.
During the late 60’s and 70’s, the young girl from Tonyrefail, Iris Williams, with her rich voice created a lasting impression on audiences in Wales, and her memorable version of “Amazing Grace” topped the Welsh charts for weeks. Iris Williams went on to be a successful singer on the British stage, and is today recognised as one of America’s leading cabaret artistes, and a performer much in demand on luxury cruises around the world. From those early tracks, in consultation with Iris, twelve of her favourites were chosen, which show her gradually maturing voice and her ability to render traditional and contemporary songs, in Welsh and in English, with sensitivity and feeling.
