John Lloyd Williams in The Promenade, Aberystwyth - 1919

from J. Lloyd Williams Diaries, pages 1/24:

A lot of young Shonnis in good cloth but most with mufflers instead of collars and ungainly caps coming low on their heads behind. 8 in a file on Prom singing splendidly.

The "Mi garia'r groes" sounded as triumphant as if they really felt the force of the sentiment as well as the music.
