Land of My Fathers – Mae Hen Wlad fy Nhadau

The national hymn of Wales. Words by Evan James and the tune by his son, James James, both residents of Pontypridd, Glamorgan, in January 1856 I've been learning to sing this. It's way easier, melody-wise, than the Star Spangled Banner. But the Welsh pronunciation is a challenge. When I find someone to accompany me, I'll… Continue reading Land of My Fathers – Mae Hen Wlad fy Nhadau

Last year's list is a good combination of English & Spanish songs, some having significance from previous trips, others requested especially for… Continue reading Honduras Bus Jams 2011 – In Progress

Dyma Gariad Fel y Moroedd (Here is Love Vast as the Ocean)

Wales has a strong tradition of music, both secular and sacred. Of the Welsh hymns, one is particularly popular, and a favorite of mine. Though it was written in the 1870s, Here is Love Vast as the Ocean became popular during a period of intense revival among the evangelical churches of Wales in 1904. Annie… Continue reading Dyma Gariad Fel y Moroedd (Here is Love Vast as the Ocean)

Actors/Musicians

I am generally very skeptical of musicians trying to become actors and actors trying to become musicians. Even though they may be very talented people, the amount of work it takes to be successful in either field takes so much work, it seems as if they try to do something "on the side" that it's… Continue reading Actors/Musicians
