Men of Harlech

Hear Victoria Welsh Choir in full voice in every track in this recording, made at the incomparable Iwaki Auditorium ABC Melbourne. "Just received your CD 'Men of Harlech' as a Christmas gift from Australia. Couldn't wait, we had to open it and listen to it straight away. Congratulations, a great CD, so many tracks in Welsh and with good pronunciation too e.g. 'angel'. Gwyn and Pat Jones Abergele N. Wales."

Let All Men Sing

This recording features a smorgasbord of new tunes and some new soloists. As part of the Australasian component at the 2012 Choir of the World concert in London’s Royal Festival Hall, we learned the very modern and musically challenging Pemulwuy (an Aboriginal guerrilla war leader in the late 1700s) and the New Zealand song Our Cities Face the Sea. And as part of the massed choir of 500 voices we sang a new arrangement of When the Saints which we hope you will enjoy.
Bryn Terfel was magnificent at the concert and we were so taken with his beautiful Anfonaf Angel (I'll Send an Angel) we have included our version here for your delight. Other new tunes are In Flanders Fields, Yr Utgorn (The Trumpet), Yfory (Tomorrow), Isle of Hope, Isle of Dreams and Highland Cathedral.
