Wales and its love of singing
Wales has a long history for singing and has become well known for choirs. Choirs are a group of people that sing in different tones to create a full sound. Choirs can range from four people and as much as 100 people.
Welsh choirs were developed for working men and women to join. They would take part in competitions, especially the Eisteddfod. Eisteddfod is a national competition that celebrates the Welsh language.
Below is an example of a choir from Treorchy (Rhondda). It is a piece of music written by Joseph Parry, a famous composer from Merthyr Tydfil.
