Welsh Carols with Brass (featuring Côr Seiriol and Beaumaris Band)
Carols are not only amongst the earliest examples of Welsh song but are also popular songs, widely sung and appreciated within a living tradition. This collection draws on every aspect of this rich body of work. Early examples include ‘Myn Mair’ believed to have been written in the Middle Ages and ‘Plygain’ carols that are borne of an unique tradition within the Welsh church. Some of the great Victorian classics are here, as well as some relatively contemporary carols by our foremost composers and arrangers, including ‘Doethion a Bugeiliaid’ by William Mathias. Many of these arrangements with brass have been prepared especially for this recording and are performed here by two of the most distinguished musical names in Wales.
