Justly famous for its choirs, Wales has long been associated with great hymn-singing. It has given numerous hymn-tunes to the Church that are enjoyed throughout the world, as well as a large number of hymns. Many of the hymns originating in Wales, however, were written in Welsh and are found only in Welsh hymnals. Recognising this, H. Elvet Lewis penned this little volume last century to introduce English-speakers to the riches of Welsh hymnody. Not only does he give translations of many of the best-loved hymns, but he succeeds in the brief biographical sketches in portraying the piety which gave rise to such compositions.
