Calon Lân, or A Pure Heart, is arguably one of the most beloved Welsh hymns of the people of Wales. If you are looking for a melody and lyric that will combine to leave your audience humming it on the way home with a lump in their throat and a twinkle in their eye, then this arrangement is for you. It is for SATB, piano, and pennywhistle (which can be substituted for violin or flute). There are two sets of lyric in the music: Welsh and English. Also, there is an IPA provided for Welsh pronunciation, performance notes, and translations.  I myself am a music teacher, worked in several opera companies and symphonies, and I also sing in the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. I would say that this arrangement is quite versatile as it could be used in a Sunday service, adv. high school/college spring concert, or a real contender piece in a music festival competition. It is quite challenging in many respects: harmonics, language diction, and vocal ranges. There are four verses, with each verse taking on stylistic changes i.e. simple accompaniment, a cappella, full accompaniment. It also has a Celtic feel about it both in terms of the language and the use of the pennywhistle. I think you will fall in love with this arrangement, and it will be one of those gems you have been looking for to wow an audience and/or adjudicators.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions about this piece! I would love to answer them and see/hear any recordings of performances! My email is I also accept commissions if you have a piece or arrangement you would like to have done for you and/or your organization.
