The Twelve Days of Christmas in Song – Day 3 has a long way to go. Day three features a Welsh hymn with a rousing, triple Amen finale.
The Welsh are fond of singing a good hymn tune. That is a bit of an understatement.
Furthermore, the featured song from our Gala Concert is the popular hymn ‘Coedmor’.
This hymn is also included in The Top 20 Best-Loved Welsh Hymns’ CD, published by Sain Records.
The list of 20 Welsh hymns, chosen by a public poll, and taken from the best recordings of the last 20 years.
Composed originally by R. L. Jones and words by E. Cefni Jones.
Royal Albert Hall Performance
Moreover, this particular arrangement for male voices, by Gwilym Lewis, was for the Association of Welsh Male Voice Choirs on the occasion of their First United Concert at the Royal Albert Hall, October 2004.
From a Christmas Cracker:
Why was the snowman looking through the carrots?
He was picking his nose!
