“The music of Wales, though justly famous, is also largely unknown.  People discuss the eisteddfod and may even have heard the miners singing, but much in this ancient mountain land is still hidden from us.
This book recaptures the age-old musical tradition, revealing its survivals in folk-lore and national custom; discovers the part played by music in religion, education and the life of the people; speakers of Welsh composers and describes the work of official organisations, with copious directories to music societies, clubs and other bodies.”
