Gymanfa Ganu en Pensilvanio
...de 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’.”
