Chanticleer has a lovely recording of this arrangement on their CD, “Christmas with Chanticleer,”‘ but don’t let that scare you off. Wiliford has written a lovely setting of this familiar Welsh tune. The voicing gets somewhat thick, up to six parts (TTTTBB), but it stays tonal throughout, making matters easy. The opening tenor solo gradually opens to a rich four-part sonority that carries us (always gently) through the rest of the score. There is both English and Welsh text underlay, with a very good Welsh pronunciation guide included on each score.
