-experience has helped in some way.

0:02:150:02:19

-The children take more than

-just singing home with them.

0:02:190:02:23

-Sorry, Twm, you're the clown.

0:02:240:02:26

-It's not true, no.

0:02:280:02:30

-It's not.

0:02:300:02:32

-If you speak to Mari, you get

-the death stare and you pipe down.

0:03:220:03:24

-We're competing in Cor Cymru and

-we're hoping we'll make our mark...

-..and show that while Anglesey is

-a small island, it has huge talent.

0:03:290:03:34

-We can do this.

0:03:340:03:35

-Here's an energetic woman.

-We're all aware of Ryan's talent

-and the fantastic songs he wrote.

0:10:220:10:26

-I'm full of energy after all that.

-I'm so proud of them.

0:12:530:12:57

-They've had a witch

-teaching them for weeks.

0:12:570:13:00

-The witch has been left at home

-on Anglesey. Well done.

0:13:000:13:04

-Can I ask,

-has anyone received the death stare?

0:13:050:13:08

-No death stares?

0:13:090:13:11

-You had it? What's it like

-to receive the death stare?

0:13:110:13:14

-Oh, it's horrifying.

0:13:150:13:17

-That's after singing well!

-Death stare, Elin?

0:13:180:13:21

-No death stares today.

-I'm scared of the death stare too.

0:13:210:13:26

-I like the sound of this choir.

0:13:260:13:28

-They have a bright,

-fresh, young sound...

0:13:280:13:31

-..but it's still soft.

0:13:310:13:32

-It's possible to give everything

-too much 'ah'! Too much ping.

0:13:330:13:38

-This choir produced

-a natural and healthy sound.

0:13:380:13:42

-They maintained the sound

-through every sentence.

0:13:420:13:45

-They also created a great dynamic,

-they're very colourful.

0:13:460:13:49

-I like the fact that they were

-disciplined right from the start.

0:13:500:13:55

-They were uniform in appearance,

-how they stood, how they looked.

0:13:550:14:00

-You could see the enjoyment

-in their faces.

0:14:000:14:04

-Very strong altos, too.

0:14:040:14:06

-They split many times at the end,

-especially at the top...

0:14:060:14:10

-..but the mid-section

-was also strong.

0:14:100:14:12

-My only criticism - work on

-the start and end of sentences...

0:14:130:14:17

-..letters like 's' and 't'.

0:14:170:14:19

-I wouldn't want them to be

-more hesitant because of that.

0:14:190:14:23

-I like how natural they sung,

-they had a natural discipline too.

0:14:230:14:27

-I'm glad she mentioned their faces.

-We worked so hard on that.

0:14:280:14:33

-I couldn't have asked for better.

0:14:340:14:36

-The altos were impressive.

0:14:370:14:39

-The altos were at their best

-and we're glad Elin noticed us.

0:14:390:14:44

-Congratulation, good luck.

-Cor Ieuenctid Mon.

0:14:440:14:48

-It's full steam ahead

-in the children's category.

0:14:500:14:55

-Ysgol Gerdd Ceredigion are next.

0:14:550:14:58

-We'll meet up with them

-Ysgol Gerdd Ceredigion

-has been around since 1993.

0:15:140:15:17

-It's as strong now as it ever was.

0:15:180:15:20

-We're one family.

0:15:210:15:22

-We rehearse together,

-we practically live together.

0:15:220:15:27

-Everyone knows everyone.

0:15:270:15:29

-Being here has given us

-so many opportunities.

0:15:300:15:33

-Cor Cymru, for example.

0:15:340:15:36

-Some members of the choir performed

-in the Proms at the Albert Hall.

0:15:360:15:42

-That was incredible.

0:15:420:15:44

-Different.

0:15:460:15:48

-Islwyn's mellowed with age,

-he's more laid-back.

0:15:480:15:51

-Islwyn's a legend

-because he dances too.

0:15:530:15:56

-He tells us to shake our backsides

-when we sing.

0:15:570:16:01

-There's plenty to pull them away

-from choral singing...

0:16:060:16:09

-..but this competition shows that

-a lot of youngsters like singing.

0:16:100:16:15

-The audience watching at home

-will think, "Oh, these again."

0:16:210:16:25

-We can't live on past successes.

0:16:250:16:27

-What's important

-is what this crew can do.

0:16:300:16:33

-We're looking forward

-to raising standards.

0:16:330:16:36

-We'll be smiling and enjoying

-ourselves as much as we can.

0:16:360:16:41

-We can do it so go Ysgol Gerdd!

0:16:410:16:44

-Islwyn Evans has walked this line

-many times before.

0:16:520:16:55

-Good luck, Islwyn.

0:16:560:16:57

-The second choir -

-Ysgol Gerdd Ceredigion.

0:16:570:17:01

-We open our repertoire

-with Clare's Benediction.

0:17:040:17:06

-For this age of choir,

-it's quite a challenge.

0:17:070:17:10

-John Rutter is renowned

-for his lyrical line.

-Can we sustain it with

-these young voices? We'll see.

0:17:140:17:17

-# May the Lord's

-loving kindness surround you

0:17:180:17:25

-# Keep you safe

-as you journey on your way

0:17:260:17:33

-# May he lead you and inspire you

0:17:330:17:40

-# As he grants you

-the gift of each new day

0:17:410:17:48

-# May he bless

-all your loved ones and cherish them

0:17:480:17:55

-# Ev'ry friend,

-ev'ry stranger at your door

0:17:550:18:02

-# In the name of his Son

-our Saviour Christ

0:18:030:18:13

-# May God bless you now and evermore

0:18:130:18:26

-# May God bless you now and evermore

0:18:260:18:33

-# Now and evermore

0:18:330:18:39

-# Now and evermore #

0:18:390:18:51

-Next, a song that's new

-to our repertoire.

0:18:560:19:00

-Yr Hogyn Pren by John Daniel.

0:19:000:19:03

-It's the story of Pinocchio,

-an old story.

0:19:040:19:07

-We're hoping to do it justice.

0:19:070:19:09

-# His name was Pinocchio

0:19:100:19:12

-# And one day to provoke him

0:19:120:19:14

-# A large, confident cricket

-appeared at the house

0:19:150:19:20

-# To argue with Pinocchio

0:19:210:19:26

-# Late one night Pinocchio

0:19:350:19:40

-# Fell asleep by the fire

0:19:400:19:43

-# And there he lay snoring

-on the clean kitchen floor

0:19:440:19:51

-# The red flames danced

0:19:510:19:56

-# And then roared and roared

0:19:560:20:01

-# And there he lay for hours

-in front of the fire

0:20:010:20:10

-# His two wooden legs turned to ash

0:20:100:20:16

-# Burnt to a cinder

0:20:160:20:21

-# By the red flames of the fire

0:20:220:20:27

-# As he cried and cried

0:20:270:20:33

-# On the kitchen floor

0:20:340:20:39

-# You can visit the pub

0:20:440:20:47

-# Which was run by the red lobster

0:20:470:20:51

-# Where Pinocchio did sleep

0:20:510:20:54

-# Once, some time ago

0:20:540:20:57

-# You can read about the prison

0:20:570:21:04

-# Before he journeyed

-to pastures new

0:21:050:21:11

-# And how Pinocchio

-was turned into a donkey

0:21:120:21:18

-# Before turning back into a boy

0:21:190:21:23

-# Into a wooden boy

0:21:230:21:27

-# He was made of wood

0:21:280:21:30

-# From head to toe

0:21:300:21:33

-# I'm not sure if paint and water

0:21:330:21:36

-# Were used to make his blood

0:21:360:21:38

-# I'm sure you'll have fun

-reading the story

0:21:380:21:43

-# Of the wooden boy #

0:21:430:21:47

-We move on

-to a relatively simple piece...

0:21:510:21:55

-..but it's also exciting - Morokeni.

0:21:550:21:58

-It's an arrangement

-of a North Namibian melody.

0:21:580:22:02

-It's an opportunity

-for the children to move around.

0:22:020:22:06

-# Morokeni vakwete, Morokeni

0:22:070:22:10

-# Morokeni vakewt'u

0:22:100:22:14

-# Morokeni vakwete, Morokeni

0:22:140:22:18

-# Morokeni vakewt'u

0:22:190:22:22

-# Rona re tswa re le re

-tswa ko Thekong

0:22:230:22:27

-# Rona re tswa Thekong

0:22:270:22:31

-# Rona re tswa re le re

-tswa ko Thekong

0:22:310:22:34

-# Rona re tswa Thekong

0:22:350:22:39

-# Dumelang, kaofela, Dumelang kao

0:22:390:22:43

-# Dumelang, kaofela

0:22:430:22:47

-# Dumelang, kaofela, Dumelang kao

0:22:470:22:51

-# Dumelang, kaofela, Dum'lang

0:22:510:22:55

-# Dumelang, kaofela, Dumelang kao

0:22:550:22:59

-# Dumelang, kaofela

0:22:590:23:03

-# Dumelang, kaofela, Dumelang kao

0:23:030:23:07

-# Dumelang, kaofela, Dum'lang

0:23:080:23:11

-# Ssh! Eh! Eh! Eh!

0:23:180:23:19

-Four years ago, we celebrated

-the choir's 20th anniversary.

0:23:240:23:28

-I commissioned Tudur Dylan

-and Hector MacDonald...

0:23:280:23:33

-..to compose four cantatas

-on themes from the Bible.

0:23:330:23:38

-One of the stories was Noa.

0:23:380:23:40

-The final song was the light

-after the darkness of 40 days.

0:23:400:23:44

-# I'll raise my eyes to the heavens

0:23:450:23:52

-# Above the land and the sea

0:23:520:23:59

-# Behold the colours in the sky

0:23:590:24:06

-# There's a rainbow there for me

0:24:060:24:13

-# And here, now,

-we live for the future

0:24:150:24:22

-# Both man and wife

-and every creature

0:24:220:24:29

-# And life begins its wondrous way,

-its wondrous way

0:24:290:24:40

-# Just step by step

0:24:400:24:44

-# And day by day

0:24:440:24:49

-# I raise my eyes to the heavens

0:24:500:24:57

-# Above the land and sea

0:24:580:25:05

-# Behold the colours in the sky

0:25:050:25:12

-# There's a rainbow there for me

0:25:120:25:19

-# There for me

0:25:190:25:24

-# There's a rainbow there

0:25:240:25:33

-# There for me

0:25:330:25:35

-# There's a rainbow there for me #

0:25:360:25:50

-How are you? What's your name?

0:25:570:26:00

-Mallt.

0:26:000:26:01

-Mallt.

-

-What a beautiful name.

0:26:010:26:03

-Are you competing with the choir

-for the first time?

0:26:030:26:06

-Yes.

0:26:060:26:07

-Did you enjoy it?

0:26:070:26:08

-Did you enjoy it?

-

-Yes, thanks.

0:26:080:26:09

-Which one was your favourite song?

0:26:100:26:12

-Every one.

0:26:120:26:14

-Every one.

-It was a great performance.

0:26:140:26:17

-Did you get a thrill from singing?

-Will you come back again?

0:26:170:26:21

-More singing?

-You loved it, didn't you?

0:26:210:26:24

-I love hearing Ceredigion.

0:26:240:26:26

-They create an ambience

-using their voices.

0:26:270:26:29

-What's special

-with a lot of Islwyn's choirs...

0:26:300:26:33

-..but especially today

-is the way he matches the sound...

0:26:330:26:38

-..to the style of the music

-he's performing.

0:26:380:26:42

-The Clare Benediction was calm

-and they softened their sound.

0:26:420:26:46

-With Yr Hogyn Pren, they created

-a very different energy.

0:26:470:26:51

-More consonants than vowels...

0:26:510:26:53

-..and that's incredibly musical.

0:26:540:26:56

-For the future, when you're in full

-flow, when you're in the middle...

0:26:560:27:01

-..finish the sentence

-before taking a breath.

0:27:020:27:04

-Sometimes, take an extra second

-to breathe before regrouping.

0:27:040:27:10

-To be honest,

-it was a very polished performance.

0:27:110:27:15

-The dancing was great - we had

-one singer dancing on crutches.

0:27:150:27:19

-I'd also like to see

-Islwyn dancing more.

0:27:190:27:22

-I was in prime position to enjoy it.

0:27:220:27:25

-Here's the singer

-dancing on her crutches.

0:27:280:27:31

-Was it difficult dancing

-on crutches? What have you done?

0:27:310:27:35

-I fell in school

-and twisted my ankle.

0:27:350:27:39

-It didn't stop you

-singing beautifully.

0:27:390:27:42

-Just the smallest amount

-of criticism about the breathing.

0:27:430:27:47

-Do you agree?

0:27:480:27:49

-Look at the size

-of some of the youngest.

0:27:490:27:52

-We need to improve the physique

-to improve the breathing.

0:27:520:27:57

-That's true of us all!

-Good luck. Thank you.

0:27:570:28:00

-The singing standards will be

-maintained with our next choir...

0:28:010:28:05

-..once again coached

-by Mari Pritchard.

0:28:050:28:08

-Cor Iau Ieuenctid Mon. We'll hear

-their story after this break.

-of almost 50 children.

0:28:240:28:28

-Anglesey, mother of Wales.

0:28:280:28:30

-We all feel like one family

-in this choir...

0:28:300:28:33

-..and Mari's everyone's mother.

0:28:340:28:36

-Anglesey's choral tradition

-is important to me...

0:28:360:28:39

-..and this choir provides

-a platform...

0:28:400:28:43

-..to teach children choral music

-at an early age.

0:28:430:28:47

-Silly!

0:28:470:28:48

-Talkative.

0:28:490:28:50

-Happy.

0:28:500:28:52

-Sassy.

0:28:520:28:54

-Mari works us hard

-and it's a lot of fun.

0:28:540:28:57

-Mari's happy and funny.

0:28:580:29:00

-When we don't learn our words,

-she can be angry.

0:29:000:29:04

-We love Anglesey.

0:29:040:29:07

-Can you move up?

0:29:080:29:09

-Here's Rhodri, the choir clown.

0:29:100:29:12

-Yes, it's true.

0:29:120:29:14

-Highlights - singing with Russell

-Watson and winning in Llangollen.

0:29:150:29:18

-Yes!

0:29:190:29:20

-It was an amazing experience.

-The stage was huge.

0:29:200:29:24

-It felt so good.

0:29:240:29:25

-Since then, a layer of the choir

-has moved up an age grade...

0:29:260:29:30

-..but new members

-have joined this choir.

0:29:300:29:34

-Best dancer - Heledd.

0:29:350:29:37

-Heledd.

0:29:370:29:38

-Heledd.

-

-Heledd.

0:29:380:29:39

-Mari.

0:29:400:29:42

-It would be great

-to beat the older choir...

0:29:450:29:48

-..because then

-we'd be better than them.

0:29:480:29:51

-My elder sister Catrin

-sings with the other choir.

0:29:510:29:54

-You're going to lose, Catrin!

0:29:550:29:57

-There's plenty of competition

-on Anglesey...

0:30:040:30:07

-..and this lady is carrying

-their hopes on her shoulders.

0:30:070:30:11

-Please welcome

-Cor Iau Ieuenctid Mon.

0:30:110:30:16

-We start our repertoire

-with Three Hungarian Songs.

0:30:190:30:22

-The first part is the story

-of a swanky butcher...

0:30:230:30:28

-..who dresses in smart clothes

-and has a red rose and shiny boots.

0:30:280:30:33

-They've created this character

-in their heads.

0:30:330:30:37

-# Seven locks upon the red gate

0:30:370:30:40

-# Seven gates about the red town

0:31:050:31:12

-# Now your heart no longer is mine

0:31:140:31:22

-# By a river

-there's a little orchard

0:31:240:31:32

-# In the orchard

-stood the miller's daughter

0:31:320:31:39

-# By the stream

-I kissed the miller's daughter

-Next is Evening Prayer

-by Englebert Humperdinck...

0:33:010:33:04

-..from his classical work,

-Hansel and Gretel.

0:33:050:33:08

-It's a wonderful duet about

-who watches over us as we sleep.

0:33:080:33:14

-# When at night I go to sleep

0:33:150:33:22

-# Fourteen angels watch do keep

0:33:220:33:28

-# Two my head are guarding

0:33:280:33:35

-# Two my feet are guiding

0:33:350:33:42

-# Two are on my right hand

0:33:420:33:48

-# Two are on my left hand

0:33:490:33:56

-# Two who warmly cover

0:33:560:34:02

-# Two who o'er me hover

0:34:030:34:09

-# Two to whom 'tis given

0:34:090:34:16

-# To guide my steps to heaven #

0:34:160:34:28

-A few years ago,

-I was listening to the radio...

0:34:490:34:52

-..and Sioned Webb, who has strong

-links with Cor Ieuenctid Mon...

0:34:520:34:56

-..was playing the harp

-with Iwan Llywelyn on the piano.

0:34:570:35:00

-They were jamming to the song

-Modryb Elin Enog.

0:35:000:35:03

-I listened to it and thought...

0:35:030:35:05

-.."This would be fantastic

-for a children's choir."

0:35:060:35:09

-# Auntie Elin Enog

0:35:090:35:11

-# Please may I have a pancake?

0:35:120:35:14

-# You can have tea and white sugar

0:35:140:35:16

-# And your apron full of pudding

0:35:160:35:17

-# Auntie Elin Enog

0:35:180:35:20

-# My mouth is parched for pancakes

0:35:200:35:22

-# My mum is too poor to buy flour

0:35:220:35:24

-# And Sian is too lazy

-to get the treacle

0:35:250:35:26

-# And my father's too sick to work

0:35:270:35:35

-# Please may I have a pancake?

0:35:360:35:39

-# Auntie Gwenno Elin

0:35:470:35:49

-# Will you come to the mill's lake?

0:35:490:35:51

-# The white swan swims in the lake

0:35:510:35:53

-# With his head under his elbow

0:35:530:35:55

-# Auntie Gwenno Elin

0:35:550:35:58

-# The mill's water wheel goes round

0:35:580:36:00

-# Faster and faster

0:36:000:36:02

-# And the swan with his wings

0:36:030:36:05

-# Goes after the duck

0:36:050:36:07

-# Will you, Auntie Elin

0:36:070:36:12

-# Come up to the mill's lake?

0:36:120:36:18

-# Auntie Elin Gwenni

0:36:200:36:24

-# Will you come

-to the isle of Bardsey?

0:36:240:36:27

-# We'll sail away on a summer's day

0:36:270:36:31

-# The Sound quietly simmering

0:36:310:36:37

-# Auntie Elin Gwenni

0:36:380:36:40

-# The seals of the isle of Bardsey

0:36:400:36:43

-# Are braying an old song

-of the island's saints

0:36:430:36:45

-# Shouting out loudly

-like my father preaching

0:36:450:36:49

-# Will you come, Auntie Gwenni

0:36:510:36:54

-# To sail to the isle of Bardsey? #

0:36:540:37:00

-Finally, Gwely Lliwiau'r Hydref.

0:37:070:37:10

-I wrote this song many years ago.

0:37:110:37:13

-It's a song about a little hedgehog

-searching for a place to sleep.

0:37:140:37:18

-# The land has gone to sleep

-and there's snow across the fields

0:37:180:37:25

-# The little hedgehog asleep

-through the long cold winter

0:37:250:37:34

-# He can nestle until spring,

-warm beneath the leaves

0:37:340:37:41

-# The bed of autumnal colours

-will be second to none

0:37:410:37:51

-# I need

0:37:540:38:00

-# A cosy little home behind a shed

0:38:010:38:04

-# A nice dry spot in the hedgerow

0:38:040:38:07

-# Anywhere before teatime

0:38:080:38:10

-# I'm very tired

0:38:110:38:13

-# A cosy little home behind a shed

0:38:130:38:17

-# A nice dry spot in the hedgerow

0:38:170:38:20

0:38:490:38:56

-Well, well, welcome to backstage.

0:39:070:39:10

-Can you describe how exciting

-it was to sing on Cor Cymru?

0:39:100:39:15

-I'm feeling so excited.

0:39:160:39:18

-I sang a lot and I felt it was very

-good and the best I'd ever sung.

0:39:180:39:23

-Tell me, who's your grandfather?

0:39:240:39:27

-William Mathias.

0:39:270:39:29

-The musician and composer.

-You have music in your blood.

0:39:290:39:33

-Would you like to hear

-what Elin has to say about you?

0:39:330:39:36

-Away you go, Elin.

0:39:360:39:38

-They performed from the first

-minute and that's lovely to see.

0:39:380:39:43

-When they came out,

-they were so obedient.

0:39:430:39:45

-If my children were that obedient,

-I'd be happy.

0:39:460:39:49

-Their faces were animated.

0:39:490:39:51

-They were smiling

-as they looked at us.

0:39:510:39:54

-They knew where they were,

-they knew why they were here.

0:39:540:39:58

-They enjoyed themselves.

0:39:580:40:01

-I like the repertoire,

-they could relax into it.

0:40:010:40:05

-They started with something

-they knew very well.

0:40:050:40:09

-They had a pingy sound.

0:40:090:40:11

-Bright, wonderful

-and they told a story.

0:40:110:40:14

-Children are excellent

-at telling a story.

0:40:140:40:17

-Telling a story through music

-is the best thing you can do.

0:40:180:40:21

-They were also very playful.

0:40:210:40:24

-Mari is playful with them

-and she gives them 100%.

0:40:240:40:29

-They respond and the same look

-is seen from both sides.

0:40:290:40:32

-They're a real team.

0:40:320:40:34

-I'd like to hear them a capella.

0:40:340:40:37

-I think they could rise

-to the challenge...

0:40:370:40:41

-..of singing without the piano.

0:40:410:40:44

-You're impressed.

0:40:440:40:45

-You're impressed.

-

-Most definitely. It's personality.

0:40:450:40:48

-I just wanted to give them

-a happy experience...

0:40:480:40:52

-..that would keep them

-with the choir and help them enjoy.

0:40:520:40:56

-I do agree, it would have been nice

-to sing a capella.

0:40:560:41:00

-The greatest thing

-is telling a story through music.

0:41:000:41:03

-That's why we chose Hansel

-and Gretel and Modryb Elen Enog.

0:41:040:41:08

-I hope we showcased

-children's choirs at their best.

0:41:080:41:13

-Well done, Cor Iau Ieuenctid Mon.

0:41:130:41:16

-They've waited patiently.

0:41:200:41:22

-Here to represent Cwm Rhondda,

-here's Cor y Cwm.

0:41:220:41:26

-We'll catch up with them

-in two minutes' time.

0:41:420:41:45

-We've come from different schools

-and we all speak the same language.

0:41:450:41:50

-It's a lot of fun.

0:41:500:41:53

-This choir has members

-who've stayed with us for years...

0:41:530:41:57

-..but we have a number

-of new members in this junior choir.

0:41:580:42:02

-When we're together, we're

-doing something we love in Welsh.

0:42:020:42:08

-I think that's fab.

0:42:080:42:09

-Before Cor Cymru, we go to Tresaith

-to have a catch-up with everyone.

0:42:100:42:15

-The families come with us too

-and we enjoy those weekends.

0:42:150:42:21

-And travelling on the bus.

0:42:210:42:23

-We sing all the way!

0:42:230:42:26

-My mother's Scottish and she's

-learnt Welsh through Cor y Cwm.

0:42:260:42:32

-She enjoys that loads.

0:42:320:42:34

-That brings us closer together.

0:42:340:42:38

-Kind.

0:42:390:42:40

-So many youngsters

-are treated negatively...

0:42:400:42:43

-..but this choir

-meets every Wednesday and Sunday...

0:42:440:42:47

-..and give their lives

-to this choir.

0:42:470:42:51

-My expectations

-for this choir are very high.

0:42:510:42:54

-We've done so well and Elin and Gav

-have shown us the potential we have.

0:42:550:43:01

-We have young members

-who haven't competed in Cor Cymru.

0:43:020:43:05

-They've spoken to the older members

-about the competition.

0:43:060:43:09

-They can't wait to compete

-on the Cor Cymru stage.

0:43:100:43:13

-If we push ourselves to the limit,

-we'll do well.

0:43:140:43:17

-We want to win it.

0:43:180:43:20

-We want to win it.

-

-We're going to win it.

0:43:200:43:21

-Keeping the choir under control

-is Elin Llywelyn-Willams.

0:43:270:43:31

-Good luck to you.

0:43:320:43:34

-The final choir in this competition,

-Cor y Cwm.

0:43:340:43:37

-We begin our repertoire

-with a song called Canwn Ynghyd...

0:43:400:43:44

-..a song about

-the enjoyment of singing.

0:43:450:43:47

-It's a suitable start.

0:43:470:43:49

-# People who make music together

0:48:150:48:19

-It's an opportunity

-to sing something melodic.

-# When it is morning,

-the hands are still praying

0:48:220:48:28

-# Close beside my bed

-The choir enjoy singing this one

-immensely.

0:50:410:50:44

-# There are buildings

-# I wanna be in this hoi polloi

0:51:020:51:07

-# So I'll be back for good someday

0:51:080:51:10

-# To make my life and make my way

0:51:100:51:12

-# But for today,

-we'll wander and enjoy

0:51:120:51:19

-# One short day in the Emerald City

0:51:190:51:23

-# One short day

-to have a lifetime of fun

0:51:230:51:27

-# One short day

-and we're warning the city

0:51:270:51:31

-# Now that we're in here

-you'll know we've been here

0:51:310:51:36

-# Before we are done!

-# One short day in the Emerald City

0:51:510:51:56

-# Where so many roam to

0:51:570:51:58

-# We'll call it home, too

0:52:000:52:04

-# And then, just like now we can say

0:52:050:52:14

-# We're just two friends

-# Two good friends

0:52:190:52:22

0:53:050:53:10

-You were the final choir to compete.

0:53:100:53:13

-Were you the best choir to compete?

0:53:130:53:15

-Like they say,

-"Save the best for last."

0:53:160:53:18

-Your first song was Canwn Ynghyd.

0:53:190:53:22

-Its message is the world

-is a better place when we sing.

0:53:220:53:26

-I agree with that. Singing

-is the best thing in the world.

0:53:260:53:30

-I enjoyed seeing them end

-with the West End.

0:53:300:53:32

-It's nice to have some excitement

-for the choir.

0:53:330:53:36

-I like movement,

-especially in children's choirs.

0:53:360:53:39

-We know how difficult it is

-to get them to concentrate.

0:53:400:53:43

-Let me mention quickly,

-Cor y Cwm are great at doing this.

0:53:440:53:48

-It was nice to see them start

-with three unaccompanied pieces.

0:53:480:53:53

-That shows confidence

-in their ability.

0:53:530:53:55

-Great tonality,

-wonderful pronunciation...

0:53:550:53:58

-..they sang in unison,

-they had bright voices...

0:53:590:54:02

-..and there was subtlety

-when needed.

0:54:020:54:05

-She treats them very sensitively,

-she knows how to respond to them...

0:54:050:54:11

-..and how

-to get the best out of them.

0:54:110:54:14

-Like all the choirs, Cor y Cwm

-could go through to the final.

0:54:140:54:21

-If they did,

-what would be your advice?

0:54:210:54:24

-I wanted to hear something from

-Schubert, Mendelssohn or Brahms...

0:54:240:54:30

-..something that suits

-their young voices.

0:54:300:54:34

-That's me, I'm picky,

-I like the classics.

0:54:340:54:37

-Elin had very kind words for your

-ability to concentrate throughout.

0:54:380:54:44

-How difficult is concentrating

-for 20 minutes on stage?

0:54:440:54:48

-When you enjoy the pieces you sing,

-it's not difficult at all.

0:54:480:54:53

-You're doing something

-you enjoy doing.

0:54:530:54:57

-You're in the zone for 20 minutes

-doing something you love...

0:54:570:55:02

-..with people you like.

0:55:020:55:04

-It's just a lot of fun.

0:55:060:55:09

-Our international judges,

-all three of them...

-which choir heads to the final.

-After recording over 100 CDs...

0:55:300:55:32

-..he's an international-renowned

-expert in sacred choral music.

0:55:320:55:37

-Award-winning Maria Guinan

-comes from Venezuela.

0:55:390:55:42

-and coordinator of El Sistema...

0:55:430:55:46

-Composer Christopher Tin

0:55:570:56:03

-One choir has impressed

-all three judges.

0:56:050:56:08

-Here's why.

0:56:090:56:10

-The choir that won today

-captured my heart.

0:56:100:56:14

-They performed a diverse programme

-which was well constructed.

0:56:150:56:19

-They had a sophisticated approach

-in terms of vocal colour...

0:56:190:56:23

-..and interpretation.

0:56:240:56:25

-It's a children's choir

-that enjoys music and is expressive.

0:56:260:56:30

-They are in tune

-with well worked voices.

0:56:310:56:35

-Looking at the individual

-singers' faces, they were radiant.

0:56:350:56:39

-It was obvious to me that they

-really connected with the material.

0:56:390:56:44

-Great enjoyable music making.

-That's how it should be.

0:56:440:56:47

-We're about to discover

-which choir is through to the final.

0:56:490:56:54

-Elin Manahan Thomas,

-which one would you choose?

0:56:540:56:58

-It's been like a concert.

-It's really hard to choose a winner.

0:56:590:57:03

-I like Cor Iau Mon.

0:57:030:57:06

-We'll have the official result

-from Maria Guinan.

0:57:110:57:16
