Flying the Welsh flag on St David’s Day (in Sussex)

Cyfarchion yr Wyl!

The Chichester Music Press is very proud of the strong Welsh links it has despite its geographical location. Several pieces in our catalogue are in Welsh, and we undertake music engraving tasks for many Welsh publishers and composers.

Here’s a quick tour of the pieces in our catalogue which are, in the terminology of the National Library of Wales, ‘of Welsh interest’, either by virtue of the origin of the texts used, or by the Welshness of the composers.

Folksong arrangements, with texts in Welsh:

  • Dafydd y Garreg Wen for SSAA (Neil Sands)
  • Dafydd y Garreg Wen for SATB (Neil Sands)
  • Cwrw Da for SSAA (Neil Sands)
  • Home / Cartref for SATB, soprano solo and piano, a commission for Cantorion y Creigiau (Neil Sands)
  • Mae ‘Nghariad i’n Fenws for tenor solo and piano (Neil Sands)
  • Chantry Folksongs for SATB & piano. One folksong from each of Wales, England, Ireland & Scotland. The Welsh one is Suo Gân, made popular outside Wales by the film Empire of the Sun, and arranged here by Victoria Larley. The Scottish & Welsh songs are arranged by composers with Welsh connections, too (Neil Sands & Patrick Larley).
