Robat Arwyn: Er Hwylio'r Haul
Er Hwylio'r Haul
Er Hwylio'r Haul was commissioned by the 2005 National Eisteddfod of Wales for Bryn Terfel, Mari Wyn Williams and the Eisteddfod Youth Choir. In commemoration of Llywelyn ap Gruffydd, killed in 1282, the work weaves settings of the Latin Catholic Mass (Agnus Dei, Lux Aeterna, Sanctus, Pie Jesu and others) with solos, duets and choral settings of Welsh poetry. The work includes a version of Benedictus, made popular by the recent best selling album by The Priests, and also recorded by Bryn Terfel and Rhys Meirion. It also includes the title song, Er Hwylio'r Haul, as heard on the recent CD by Ysgol Glanaethwy, finalists of the BBC's Last Choir Standing.
