This delightful collection of essays and poems in the area of Welsh music studies is an affectionate tribute to two great 'Bearers of Song', Meredydd Evans and Phyllis Kinney. The volume has been assembled by their friends and colleagues as a celebration of their immeasurable contribution to the culture, music and language of Wales over the last fifty years. All of the material is presented fully bilingually in both English and Welsh, and there are numerous musical examples and illustrations. Two of Wales' leading poets, Tony Conran and Gwyn Thomas, offer specially-commissioned works for Mered and Phyllis, while Robin Gwyndaf contributes the poem that gives the volume its title. There is also a warm appreciation of the couple's joint achievement by R.Geraint Gruffydd and an extensive bibliography of their complete writings by Huw Walters.
