17 folk favourites from the best male voice choirs. Two great Welsh tradition have ben brought together on this recording: the Male Choir tradition on the one hand, and the wealth of traditional folk songs on the other. Two traditions of the Welsh people, – two “folk” tradition in the true sense of that over-used word. It is very difficult to say precisely how old these songs are, though it is evident tat some are considerable older than others. They mainly reflect the rural way of life, though there are more recent and urban connections to songs such as “Ffarwel i ddociau Lerpwl” (“Farewell to Liverpool docks”) and “Sosban Fach”, known the world over as Llanelli’s rugby anthem. Two recurring themes are romance and the battle for Welsh independence, and there are also a lullaby and children’s songs such as “Hen fenyw fach Cydweli” (“The old woman of Kidwelly”). 24 traditional songs in all, – arranged for Male Choirs in four-part harmony.
