'Wales' - picture by Michał Huniewicz on Flicker
If Wales is known throughout the world it is most likely for its singing. The Welsh have often been heard to refer to it as “The Land of Song”, and although that might conjure up images of the echoing majestic voices of a Male Voice Choir, or Shirley Bassey’s wide arms, Tom Jones’ thrusting hips, or even Harry Secombe ’s Sunday evening hymns, the significance of this national attachment to “the voice” goes deeper than a simple love of singing. Wales’ deserved reputation for choric excellence has something much more keenly to do with communities, with social centre-points, but also with performance.
