We also added the Welsh words to the plygain carol, “Ar gyfer heddiw’r bore”, which sounds amazing with male voices. I’ve known this song since childhood but never heard it sung with just male voices. Quite an emotional experience for me actually.
Too much exotic festive material for one evening, you wonder? Hah! We laugh in the face of such fears. Haha!
Spare your sympathy for the people in the next room trying to have a meeting. They’ve been regaled (through the wall) with everything from sea shanties to union songs to anthems in praise of ale. And they take it all with such patience, even being kind enough to say it sounds good. Now their eardrums are becoming hardened to the onslaught. This week one of them said “we could hardly hear you!” Sing up, lads!!
