What a powerful and emotional cd.From the lovely opening of Sailing, to the power of land of my fathers, this is a cd that tears at all the emotions and has the hairs standing up on the back of your neck.The choir sound excellent, and the accompanying orchestra just makes it such an enjoyable listening experience.

Trully uplifting!!!

They prove that human voice is the best instrument given to us. Nothing fancy here, just voices with passion. They sing what it means to them. My tears just came out for no reason as I was just listening to the samples the very first time. It really touched the deepest part of my heart.

The Welsh nation really do know how to sing. This is a fantastic CD with some of the most wonderful songs. The fresh interpretations are up lifting and inspiring. This is a must buy!

The combination of this arrangement along with the strong, rich male voices makes "Sailing" one the world's great choral masterpieces in my opinion. Most music only reaches our ears; this pieces reaches our hearts.

This is art. Although it seems magical it almost transcends explanation and lifts the spirit of mankind out of itself for just a moment in time.

"Sailing" reaches us most deeply at the very point when the arrangement modulates and allows the full harmony of these voices to soar. When this takes place in the CD it makes the hair stand out on the back of your neck. My eyes teared up and I knew that my deepest self had been touched.

I was disappointed with this CD. It felt all very studio-managed. Yes, the songs are nicely sung; but there seemed to be no great emotion or force to the singing. I also I agree with one of the other reviewers that the accompaniment was too pronounced. For a male voice choir you want some power and energy. This might have set the hairs rising on the back of a small dog, but not me. Maybe in the 21st century it has to be sufficiently bland to appeal to a wide audience in different countries.

The Fron couldn't have done better on their 1st CD - the opening track Sailing is a fabulous arrangement. If you haven't bought any of the Fron's CDs, then this is the one to get.

Excellent voices overpowered by incongruous orchestral accompaniment.The richness of the voices was spoiled for one who wants a male voice choir to be just that.This cd does more than it says on the tin,unfortunately.

This CD is lovely, the music is well chosen and the singing is a good quality. I enjoyed being able to listen to part of the tracks on Amazon before I bought it, this was useful. I particularly like the arrangement of 'You Raise Me Up' which has been translated into Welsh and works very well, nice CD boys,thank you.
