Graig yr Oesoedd
George T. Llewellyn (composer), Patrick Hartnett (arranger)
In 1763, the Reverend Augustus Toplady was inspired to pen the words of his popular hymn Rock of Ages after he found shelter from a storm in the fissure of a gorge in the Mendip Hills. In 1915, the Welsh singer and composer George T. Llewellyn set Topladay's words to a tune of his own in a rousing version for contralto/baritone. In this contemporary arrangement of Llewellyn's striking melody, composer Patrick Hartnett fuses the old and the new to present a lyrical piece for SATB choir and piano.
