Classic FM's compilation of Decca recordings of Welsh favourites & male voice choral standards sung by great Welsh choirs & artists. Decca, 2017. The generally useful sleeve notes are a bit fictional on Joseph Parry's Aberystwyth connections - rather than being a local bootmaker (which he was as a young man in his native Merthyr), he was first Professor of Music at the University here!
