Hir a Hwyr (Long and Late)
'John ac Alun' release their first collection of new songs for 10 years
It's 10 years since John and Alun released their last album, and as the title suggests, this release has been hotly anticipated. The reason for this delay was partly to do with their desire to shape every aspect of the work, including the choice of songs, their interpretation and the type of production that would best suit each song.
The recording took place in Alun's own home in Tudweiliog, across a period of two years. Alun is also responsible for most of the arrangements on this record.

It has won a record nine times at the National Eisteddfod of Wales.
Elwyn Wilson Jones
This selection of gospel songs is filled with humour, irony and humility, some well known and iconic, some less familiar but equally powerful.
Elwyn Wilson Jones is known throughout Wales as a member of ‘Hogia’r Wyddfa’. The material is close to his heart and perfectly suits the nature of his voice. The songs are in new arrangements by his good friend Dafydd Bullock, a well known composer from Llanberis whose work has been recorded, performed and broadcast internationally.
Songs are sung in Welsh and in English, accompanied by piano, bass, drums, clarinet and tuba!

Ffrindiau’r Wyddor (Alphabet Friends)
with Dewi Pws, Siân James, Emyr Gibson and Elin Llwyd
Here is a great CD for young Welsh learners!! A collection of songs that introduce the letters of the Welsh alphabet in a light, simple and fun style. Each letter is associated with a certain character and the melodies and the words together with the colourful accompaniments combine to produce an exciting way for children to learn the entire alphabet. There is also an opportunity to listen to the songs without the words. This provides the opportunity for movement, dancing and other creative tasks. The children can sing the songs either individually, in groups or sing along with family, friends and teachers.
