Welsh Love Song - Lisa Lân - a capella harmony




This is a tragic Welsh love song from the beautiful Island of Angelsey , situated off the North West Coast of Wales [ it`s Welsh name being- Ynys
Mon. ] It`s just under an hours drive from where I live [ about 45 miles away ] Most of you might also recall it is where Prince William and his bride Kate [ or the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge as they are now known as ] are stationed in RAF Valley there.
Singing in this Video are - Geraint , Merfyn and Dafydd who are a trio calling themselves "Canig " They also sing in a choir called Cantorion Colin Jones -the web site is well worth a visit !
During the Cantorion Colin Jones tour to France in July 2008, aware that John [ see second video below ] a member of the choir, and brother of another member, were slowly succumbing to MND , choristers were moved to discuss methods of raising money for the M.N.D.A.

One idea was to record a c/d of the Cantorion Colin Jones Soloists.
John Puw was one of these soloists. Please scroll down.

I enjoyed listening to these videos Janet, thank you so much. The Welsh have a reputation for singing so beautifully don't they? I always loved to hear the Welsh Miner's Choir.
