Côr Godre’r Aran

Profile:
Formed in 1949 by the late Tom Jones, Godre’r Aran have been at the forefront of Welsh Male Voice singing for over 60 years. Their base is the small village of Llanuwchllyn, near Bala in Meirionnydd, and they have managed to maintain their very special sound through a combination of hard work, natural talent and a thoroughly professional MD in Eirian Owen.
Under Tom Jones, Godre’r Aran were primarily a “Penillion” or “Cerdd Dant” party, with their own distinctive voice. But when Eirian Owen, a Llanuwchllyn girl herself, took over in 1976, she transformed the choir into a highly professional and disciplined outfit, without losing any of its original spirit.
Having triumphed several times in the National and International Eisteddfod, as well as in many other choral competitions, their discography is impressive, and so is their long tradition of successful overseas tours. Their packed-out tours to Australasia are legendary in male choir circles, especially the time when they raised the famous roof at the Sydney Opera House!
