Programme note

Behold, The Best of Morning Dawns is a response to the Welsh tradition of plygain, or Christmas matins, in which Christians would meet in chapels to greet the sunrise on Christmas morning by singing traditional carols - in this case Wel dyma’r borau gorau i gyd (Behold the Best of Morning Dawns).
