Cymdeithas Madog has two audio cassette tapes and one CD available to help Welsh language students begin their study. Here is a short description of each of these products.
The Cymdeithas Madog Guide To Welsh Folk Songs: The Cymdeithas Madog Guide to Welsh Folk Songs CD contains a selection of 16 traditional folk songs we love singing at Cwrs Cymraeg. You'll hear beloved favorites like "Ar hyd y nos", "Ar lan y Môr," and "Y Mochyn Du", as well as "Hen Wlad fy Nhadau" and that tongue twister, "Cyfri'r geifr." The performer is Meredith Roberts, who teaches frequently on our Welsh language courses. She has directed the choir and has led our communal singing as well. On the CD each song has two tracks, so youll hear Meredith pronounce the words first and then sing the songs, with a simple guitar accompaniment. In all, a good hour's worth of language help and musical enjoyment!
