Welsh National Opera Chorus
Very beautiful and uplifting.
Diolch yn fawr pawb. Da iawn.
A fantastic, uplifting sound from a wonderful Chorus, thank you.
Patriotic prejudice demands a reference to “flattening the curve” 😉
Keep singing, WNO!
We used to sing this in school, and in chapel!
Thanks for that, it made my day.
Diolch yn fawr.
Outstanding/superb. Very nostalgic. Brought tears to my eyes as my dad used to sing it in English xx
One of my favourite Welsh songs – and my mother’s too. It brought tears to my eyes. The WNO was my artistic home and it’s wonderful to know that its Chorus is singing as well as ever. Proof indeed that the Welsh have harmony in their souls. Diolch yn fawr.
Bryn Terfel said he was deeply moved when, at the end of his first Meistersinger, he faced the WNO chorus hailing his Sachs with a glorious “Wach auf, es nahet gen den Tag”. Hearing this, I can tell why. Superlative singing.
Originally, an American revival hymn, known as “I Am Coming, Lord” or “I Hear Thy Welcome Voice,” written in 1872 by the Methodist evangelist Lewis Hartsough. The Welsh lyrics are by John Roberts, better-known as Ieuan Gwyllt.
Why would anyone downvote this comment, which simply adds info, without detracting from the music??
Warms the cockles of my Welsh heart.
Honestly I have seeing thousands of this Videos and I am extremely disapointed with the professional musicians in general. Choirs without any budget or offices are doing better jobs then this exemple. I am sorry for saying like this but, this is a missed chance for a musical revolution.
Since the 80’s we complain about the classical music struggle and, when change is in our sight we just answer with the most lazy proposals. The bigger the budget, worst the respond.
The same applied for Orchestras and Theaters.
Where is the professionalism? The sound is amateur, the video is amateur, the proposal ist non existent.
