“ . . . the most impressive publication of the year.” –Western Mail Magazine

“A classic tribute to Wales' image as the Land of Song and undoubtedly the best book of the year.” –Dean Powell, Literary Editor, Western Mail

“This collection of essays is a celebration of Welsh singing. All the great names are here, including Geraint Evans, Margaret Price, Tom Jones, Dafydd Iwan and Cerys Matthews, but even to mention some of them gives no idea of the book’s coverage; over two hundred Welsh singers are listed in the index. Some of the essays deal with individual singers while others cover broader topics; each one is well researched and is written by a contributor who has an intimate knowledge of the subject . . . ‘Praise the Lord!’ said the Rev. Eli Jenkins, ‘We are a musical nation’. Anyone who doubts this has only to read this collection of essays which will give pleasure to anyone who enjoys Welsh singing, past and present, solo and choral, classical and popular.” –www.gwales.com
