Anyone who has heard or read about this remarkable bass-baritone knows of the passion Bryn Terfel has for Wales - the music, the culture, the language of his home. This recording, made during the early years of his career, is a collection of songs that mean the most to him. Welsh traditional songs, folk songs, hymns, and song settings of some of Wales's finest ancient and modern poets evoke the spirit of this remarkable country. Bryn Terfel is joined on several songs by acclaimed Welsh tenor John Eifion, and accompanied by piano and harp. Recorded between 1984 and 1990. All songs are sung in Welsh.
