I have been taking the choir around to Newport and Cwmbran. you heart the Cwmbran podcast before and here you hear some of the sounds from Tredegar House in Newport Christmas Celebration, where the choir sang so beautifully in the Great Hall.
The new CD PAX HOMNINIBUS BONAE VOLUNTATIS-Peace on Earth Goodwill to men. The most beautiful carols of Europe ALL sung in Latin. You may think this is odd,yet Latin is easier than Czech or Polish and I discovered 'Infant Holy was Polish!' This is beautiful sung by Convivium Musicorum and their intstrumental Group. (Get from Amazon and type in Latin Hymns)
The Christmas Story and Welsh Christmas songs
Pope Leo's short Christmas Sermon of 440AD-even before Saint David!
I sing 'Our Father'
Excerpt from 'Carol Singing' from Laurie Lee-Cider with Rosie.(and not singing properly because I have a cold)
Cwmbran Salvation Army Band play Adeste Fideles(O Come all ye Faithful)
Merry Christmas Everyone
