    Great footage of Tylorstown Male Voice Choir singing 'Men of Harlech' in their home town.

  • Description

    Titles read: 'THE VOICE OF WALES - A Miner's Cameo - The voice of Wales - of the men from the deep Pits of Glamorgan - dour sons of the Men of Harlech, whose stirring call they sing - in their own ancient tongue. Incidentally these men from the Tylorstown Male Voice Choir are famous throughout South Wales'.

    Tylorstown, Wales.

    Various shots of the Tylorstown Male Voice Choir singing 'Men of Harlech' in Welsh on a hillside in their home town. Locals, some with pit-blackened faces, stand around listening. The choir are dressed in black tie and evening jackets. Brief shots of the colliery nearby.

    Shots of a ruined castle - Tylorstown Castle? People wander about the grounds and along the walls. Mountains are seen in the background.

    If you have any more information on the 1000 voices that sang in the Royal Albert Hall for King George V in 1935 I would love to see footage of it as it was my Great Grandad conducting and we have little information about him. His name was Thomas William Kemp and his pseudonym in Eisteddfod terms as a Bard was Alaw Hefin. It is very possible he was involved in this choir. Thank you
