John S Davies is a key figure in Welsh music – with his choir, he has commissioned and championed work by numerous Welsh composers.
This recording, Dathliad (Celebration), made to mark the group’s fortieth anniversary, features some gems of this repertoire. The work of eight Welsh composers is represented – from Alun Hoddinott and William Mathias, to composers still living and working in Wales today.
