Our recordings and DVDs
The choir has featured in many recordings, including 6 CDs and 2 earlier cassettes of the choir on its own, along with tracks on joint choir recordings and on an Aled Jones CD. We also have DVD sets of the 2002 and 2006 tours of Europe which combine musical highlights with the scenic splendours of the journey. DVDs of the 2014 tour to Ireland, Wales and England are also available from the choir.
Our latest CD, On Dragon Wings
This CD was made especially for the 2014 tour to Wales. England and Ireland. It includes old favourites Cwm Rhondda and Men of Harlech, but none of the other 18 tracks has ever been recorded previously by the choir. Most of them are new songs which form the basis of our current repertoire. Soloist Greg McCreanor and narrator Clive Woosnam are also featured.
A Time to Remember
This includes a lot of new material such as Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”, the haunting “May It Be” and the powerful “African Alleluia”, as well as a number of Christmas Carols, including “O Holy Night” featuring soloist Cheryl Priest. Cheryl sings three other solos, while narrator Clive Woosnam’s live performance of “A Child’s Christmas in Wales” at the Riverside Theatre adds another seasonal touch.
Our other CDs
Our 2006 CD, As Long As We Have Music (left), featuring “A Seekers celebration”, “Oh what a beautiful morning” and Welsh classics “Nant y mynydd”, “Mawlgan” and “Ar hyd y nos”.
l Keep A Welcome (right) from 2002, featuring “Calon Lan”, “Cwm Rhondda”, “I still call Australia home” and the lovely “All in the April evening”.
Words from Wales
The 2016 CD by narrator Clive Woosnam. A splendid collection of spoken word pieces from this master of recitation, including excerpts from Dylan Thomas’s works, such as “Under Milkwood” and “A Child’s Christmas in Wales”, and an entertaining tale of Welsh Rugby by the late actor, Richard Burton.
