Fun Friday - Only Boys Aloud - Calon Lân

In a discussion on Choral Net, original lyrics were said to have been changed substantially over the years and drifted away from the intended meanings.  Once a lyric is translated, it does tend over time to have changes made whether for a particular concert or sound etc.

Once while touring with a choir, we sang with a Welsh choir who sang their half completely in Welsh.  The first few songs were lovely but they might just have sung everything to "lah" as we didn't have a clue as to the meanings.

The song these young men are singing in Welsh.  The English translation is Crystal River.  Do you need to know the words to enjoy this song?  You tell us.  Click on Comment below.
