‘Hyfrydol’ (Welsh Hymn)

You don’t have to be Welsh to love this hymn. The melody’s always the same, but every denomination’s hymnal has a different set of lyrics.

Hyfrydol–here performed, Welsh, by Bryn Terfel.


Today’s Hot Hymn: ‘Hyfrydol’

The Welsh hymn, Hyfrydol (the word in Welsh means “tuneful” or “pleasant”), is certainly one of my favorites. Naturally I post it now and then.

This morning when I woke, Patty called, “Come down, you’ve got to see this! Your blog–I don’t know what’s happening with it!” I thought, “Gee, maybe I’ve got 100 views already.” A hundred views before I finish breakfast is a spectacular start that hardly ever happens.

Imagine my surprise to find over 350! And most of them for this hymn, Hyfrydol: most of them from the U.K.

So in case you missed it the first time around, here it is again, sung by Bryn Terfel and the Black Mountain Male Chorus.
