Paul Mealor: A Welsh Prayer (TTBB/Piano arr. Harry)

Books | Men's Voices, TTBB, Piano Accompaniment

Publisher: Novello & Co Ltd.
Composer: Paul Mealor
Format: Sheet Music | Vocal Work

A Welsh Prayer, in the original version for SATB choir and two harps, was commissioned by Holywell Music and the North Wales International Music Festival as a gift to celebrate the 65th birthday of His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales.

The beautiful words, written especially for this anthem by Dr Grahame Davies - one of Wales's most outstanding poets - reflect the long life of service and dedication to the nation that the Prince has tirelessly undertaken throughout his life.

The piece was premiered by the Aberdeen University Chamber Choir with harpists Hannah Stone and Catrin Finch, conducted by the composer on 22 September 2013 at St Asaph’s Cathedral as part of the North Wales International Music Festival. This version, arranged for male voice choir by Edward-Rhys Harry, was first performed by the massed choirs of the 25th London Welsh Festival of Male Choirs, accompanied by the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama Symphony Orchestra, at the Royal Albert Hall on 15 October 2016 directed by Edward-Rhys Harry.
