This recording is a fine selection of Welsh and international favourites traditionally sung by male voice choirs. From “The Lord’s Prayer” to “Softly as I leave you” and “Lily of the Valley”, and from Welsh classics like “Y Ddau Wladgarwr” to “Hwyrol Weddi” and “Paid â Deud”. Three from the Selection have powerful soloists – “I’se weary of waiting” with Huw Hughes, “Kalinka” with Gwilym Jones and “Safwn yn y Bwlch” with Norman Evans.
