The Gwalia Singers were founded in 1966 and quickly gained the reputation of being a small, successful choir with a strong sense of 'belonging'. Although the years since have seen some big changes in the choir's circumstances, the essentials remain. We still draw our members from a wide range of backgrounds and geographical locations, we still enjoy success on the concert platform and we still like to feel that a Gwalia has three main priorities in life - his family, his work and the choir (in that order).
Wales is one of the four countries that
make up the United Kingdom of Great Britain and
Northern Ireland. Wales has its own language
(Welsh) and, since 1955, its own capital city
(Cardiff). It is often referred to as "The
Land of Song". While 'Cymru' (the Welsh word for Wales) means
'friends' or 'fellow countrymen', the
word Wales stems from a word used by the invading
Anglo Saxons to mean 'foreigners' or 'outsiders',
despite the Welsh being native to the land. Gwalia
is an archaic Welsh name for
deriving from the Latin words Gwalia or Wallia.

One of the most heavily requested records every Christmas in the USA is 'Stop The Cavalry'. However, the version requested is not the one by Jona Lewie that you may be familiar with. It is, in fact, the version recorded about a year later by the Cory Band with the Gwalia Singers. It is quite possibly the most popular song ever by an artist who never had a charted recording - single, album or otherwise. Unfortunately we don't have any copies for sale, but CDs can be purchased from www.silverplatters.com, it can be played on Spotify and is also available for download via iTunes or Amazon.
