Christmas Eve 2020 Extra — Tom Jones Recites Dylan Thomas   Leave a comment

Wales has given us many great exports besides coal. One has been the beauty of its poetry, and the other the beauty of its music. In the video clip below, from 1970, Tom Jones does something other than sway his hips — he recites for us from countryman Dylan Thomas’ A Child’s Christmas in Wales. Accompanying him is The Treorchy Male Choir, singing holiday carols in the lovely sounds of the Welsh choral tradition.

It’s 10-plus minutes, and worth it.

Merry Christmas to you all, wherever you may be!
