Master Singers

UK, 1966 (MIFF 1967, Programme E)

Director: Robert Vas

The great choirs of the Welsh mining valleys first grew from the singing of hymns in chapel on Sundays — for many, the only time in the week into which beauty entered. Even now these choirs, and the spirit that causes them to flourish, are part of Welsh culture.

Golden Gate Award, San Francisco Festival.
