Gymanfa Ganu en Pensilvanio la Times-Leader:

"Before the conductor began the Gymanfa Ganu, a Welsh festival of sacred hymns, he had the audience in Church of Christ Uniting group together on one side of the church...

...‘After a short memorial to Ronald E. Williams, a past president of the society who passed away recently, H. Merritt Hughes Jr., the society chaplain, explained the importance of the Welsh language.

‘We have a lot to do with language,' he said. 'It’s wonderful to sing these hymns in Welsh, the language of heaven.’

Williams then asked the crowd how many were fluent in Welsh; nobody replied.

‘Good,’ he said. ‘Nobody could correct you, so sing these hymns out full and loud’.”
