Making a new Revels recording is like traveling to a foreign land for the first time. When we began assembling this collection of Welsh music for the Christmas Season, cretain "must-do" favorites emerged, like the "must-visit" chapels, castles and valleys that beckon to the Wales tourist. Along the way a number of lesser-known gems surfaced, like those unexpected delights off the beaten track that the curious traveler encounters. The deeper we delved into these songs, the more we learned about the rich and complex history of this ancient land.
“The exuberance and sheer entertainment of the Revels approach is hard to resist.” – Boston Herald
“From this recording and the excellent liner notes, we sense what it feels like to be at a Revels event….The performances are sincere, honest, and therefore powerful.” – Kodaly Envoy
