Grace Williams: Missa Cambrensis


A recording of Missa Cambrensis by the Barry-born composer Grace Williams, at its only public performance at Llandaff Cathedral, Cardiff, in June 1971.

Missa Cambrensis is a sixty-minute piece comprising a musical setting of the Latin Mass, readings of the Welsh Beatitudes, and Grace Williams' carol Rhosyn Duw, with words by Saunders Lewis.

Commissioned by the Llandaff Festival of Music, it was performed by the BBC Orchestra and the Llandaff Festival Choir.

Very little of Grace Williams' music is available on disc or in print, but this piece features in a new edition of her musical scores published on St David's Day 2010.
