Hiraeth Ensemble is a trio consisting of Soprano, Bass-Baritone and Harp. Formed in RWCMD.
The Hiraeth Ensemble was formed by Megan Morris (Harp), Angharad Kathy Davies (Soprano) and Emyr Wyn Jones (Bass-Baritone) during their time as students at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. Most recently, the trio performed a recital for ministers and presidents of the 2016 British-Irish Brexit Summit. The ensemble have been a popular choice for weddings, corporate events, Welsh themed events. They also perform regularly as duos (harp and soprano, harp and bass-baritone). The harp is the national instrument of Wales and Wales is often referred to as "gwlad y gân" or "land of song". Therefore, it is very apt to mix both traditions. The ensemble enjoy performing a vast range of repertoire from operatic arias, popular songs from the shows and folk songs of the Isles. As a first language Welsh speaking ensemble they always relish performing traditional Welsh music.
