The Welsh in Australia, Volume 1
Hymns and traditional Welsh songs in commemoration and celebration of St. David.
Hymns and traditional Welsh songs in commemoration and celebration of St. David featuring the Melbourne Welsh Male Voice Choir and Victorian Welsh Singers. Volume 1 includes 'Men of Harlech', 'Gwahoddiad', 'Amazing Grace', 'Morte Christe'.
The reputation of the choir is such that its services are in great demand with a heavy workload of concerts. High standards and choral versatility have proved the ingredients of continuing success.
The Melbourne Welsh Male Voice Choir and the Victorian Welsh Singers combined to record the Gymanfa Ganu at the Robert Blackwood Hall, Melbourne in 1992. The combined choir totalled almost one hundred men, rehearsed and led by Alwyn Humphreys, musical director of the Orpheus Choir.
