Description

In Welsh Hymns and their Tunes Alan Luff dissects and explores their background and place in Welsh History and Culture.

The Welsh are proud of their hymns. They have done much to study the texts; less work has been done on the tunes. But in reality it is the tunes that fascinate much of the hymn-singing world outside Wales. Alan Luff, former Precentor at Westminster Abbey, and a respected consultant on church music of all kinds, has put the fruits of ten years' service in North Wales into his work of wide and sensitive scholarship. The hymns themselves are not only considered in great detail, but also placed within the broader historical context of Welsh culture and Christianity, making this the definitive study of the subject. This is a unique introduction to the Welsh tunes and culture that produced them. It will inspire everyone who knows and loves this outstanding repertoire of music as a living vehicle of worship.
