Land of my fathers

First line:
Mae hen wlad fy nhadau yn annwyl i mi
traditional Welsh

Hen wlad fy Nhadau (‘Land of my Fathers’) was fashioned in 1856 by the harpist James James, to words by his son, Evan. It gradually ousted God bless the Prince of Wales in popularity, and is now regarded as the country’s national anthem, regularly drawing its people together at the most prestigious events. Lambert, who considered it essential that music be viewed against its social background, would surely have approved, understanding the enduring power of the genre to address humanity’s hopes and dreams, ‘till the stars fall from the sky.’
