AllMusic Review by

Bryn Terfel's third non-classical album Songs of My Welsh Home delivers exactly what the title promises, a collection of traditional Welsh tunes such as "Ora Pro Nobis (Welsh Prayer for Those in Peril)," "Luned (Welsh Hymn)," and "Cywidd Canmlwyddiant." Gentle harps accompany Terfel on a few tracks, such as "The River's Song" and "The Snow On The Trees," and pianos support him on "Son of the Moutain," but the focus is on Terfel's rich baritone; many songs are performed a cappella, heightening the musicality of the Welsh tongue. A fond tribute to the songs he grew up singing, Terfel's Songs of My Welsh Home will please his fans as well as anyone interested in the region's traditional music.
