Thanks for that link, Emma B. I was able to listen to the program thanks to the Listen Again link you gave me in the chat room, and I'll forward it to our chorus members since this is a song we've sung for years.

There's a coincidence. My neighbour just phoned to say she'd heard me on the radio and I couldn't think what the heck she was talking about. Came onto Mudcat, saw this thread, and it dawned on me. I'd completely forgotten about doing the programme. (The researcher had actually been interviewing me about another thing altogether and we sort of meandered onto the topic of Bugeilio'r Gwenith Gwyn.)

Yeh. Trust me: contradict Bryn Terfel on a music-related topic! Ah well. The contrariness that comes with age ...

(But I still stand by what I said!)
