On this album, Rhys displays his mastery of the classical and operatic, and also of classic Welsh solos.
Rhys Meirion has all the attributes which combine to make a world-class singer: a powerful and sonorous tenor voice, a stage presence which commands attention, an engaging personality, and innate musicianship of the highest order.
He was brought up within a few miles of the renowned bass-baritone Bryn Terfel, and in a recent Gala Concert at London’s Albert Hall they combined to electrifying effect. There is an affinity between them in their ability to sing – and enjoy – songs from a wide range of styles and traditions.
On this album, Rhys displays his mastery of the classical and operatic, and also of classic Welsh solos. He shows his natural feeling for the Welsh hymn, as well as Italian favourites. Through his connection with Côr Rhuthun, which lends its own unique sound to this album, Rhys has known composer Robat Arwyn for many years, and he sings three of Robat’s recent compositions here, the title-song, a duet with young Welsh soprano Fflur Wyn, and Cân Mair. All three songs are destined to become firm favourites with audiences and listeners.
