Côr y Penrhyn - Anthem
Here is our latest musical presentation. The process of
creating it has been interesting and unique in the choir’s
history. It’s a musical journey from the Bethesda Cricket
and Bowling Club to the world famous BBC studio in
Maida Vale, London. It’s an offering from the traditional
to the modern, from religious to folk music, from the
heritage and culture of the Welsh chapel to the native
splendour of South Africa. It compares the European
baroque with the powerful rhythms of the Negro spiritual.
It combines the velvet, soothing sound of the Welsh
language with the dignity of the old Latin.
This recording has resulted in a definite challenge to
our musical boundaries and we believe that it will define
the choir for the next few years. In the spirit of one of the
CD’s main songs, Pererin Wyf, we hope you enjoy the
Anthem for years to come.
