Bryn Terfel, Katherine Jenkins, Aled Jones & Rhys Meirion - Cwm Rhondda
Patriotic CD to be released to celebrate autumn internationals:-
A CD produced in aid of children’s charity, NSPCC Cymru/Wales was released today (Monday 30th October) in a bid to inspire Welsh rugby fans to lead our boys to victory during this year’s autumn international series. The release coincides with the start of the series which kicks off next month – 4th November with Wales v Australia at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.
The WRU and SAIN (Recordiau) Cyf – Wales’, have collaborated to produce the special edition CD which features the Welsh National Anthem recorded during last year’s autumn international series and features Welsh stars Katherine Jenkins, Bryn Terfel and Aled Jones.
Exclusive tracks of Cwm Rhondda, inspired by Queen, (better known to many rugby fans as Bread of Heaven) is an amazing arrangement and are sung by world renowned opera stars Bryn Terfel and Rhys Meirion in both Welsh and English.
NSPCC Cymru/Wales Full Stop Campaign Manager Carol Gillanders comments on this fantastic fundraising gesture: “We’re delighted that such talented stars chose to support the NSPCC in this way, Welsh rugby fans are so passionate and patriotic, I’m sure this CD will find its way into every rugby mad household in Wales.
The CD will be available in well known record stores across Wales, at the Millennium Stadium shop and during the autumn international matches next month.
Special thanks go to the Six Nations, Universal Classics and the artists themselves for their help and involvement with this production.
