Cerith Owens of Loud Applause Productions can be guaranteed to put on spectacular concerts, so we were delighted to be invited to take part in this year’s Annual Royal British Legion Charity Gala Concert in Carmarthen.
The list of performers included soprano Gwawr Edwards, The Three Welsh Tenors (Aled Hall, Rhys Meirion & Aled Wyn Davies), City of Swansea Pipe Band, 215 (City of Swansea) Squadron Corps of Drums, compere Brian Sullivan, and guest accompanist Caradog Williams.
Tickets had been sold out long before the date, so it was rewarding to sing to a capacity audience on such a stormy night, with our MD D. Huw Rees and Accompanist Hywel Evans in charge of our performance. In order to fit in the other performers and the traditional Tribute to the Fallen, we sang just eight songs, including Mansions of The Lord, which we were due to sing at the Menin Gate in Ypres just over a week later. We were joined by Gwawr Edwards in The Holy City, and Gwawr and The Three Welsh Tenors in O Gymru.
Apart from their individual performances, Gwawr and the Tenors combined in Verdi’s Brindisi.
It was a wonderful and moving occasion, unaffected by the weather outside, and the compliments from audience members at the end made it even more enjoyable – and we sold out of CDs! Our new one is due out before Christmas, so keep an eye on our website.
