The Concert  was inspired by recollections of the Festival President,  Osian Ellis, performing many songs for voice and harp throughout his long career,  and by the fact that Benjamin Britten wrote “The Birthday Hansel” for him to perform with Peter Pears.

Some of the songs were written for piano or harp accompaniment and others have been played  from piano editions.

We remember that the composer Dilys Elwyn Edwards lived in Caernarfon for many years and  was born  exactly 100 years ago in August 1918.

Two works are by living composers, John Metalf and Geraint Lewis. Mansel Thomas was Head of Music at the BBC in Cardiff for several years  and William Mathias Professor of Music in Bangor University. David Vaughan Thomas is regarded as  “…one of the most important composers in the transitional period of Welsh music from the Victorian era to our own times.” Ty Cerdd.
