Sleeve notes:

If ever there was an opportunity and desire to recall the past, then the Millennium provides just such an opportunity. From their earliest years Morriston Orpheus has enjoyed an illustrious musical history. This unique recording features some of the best loved songs from this world famous choir.
The opening track, “Men of Harlech,” reminds everyone that this body of men emanates from the heart of Wales. The second track, “Goodbye Dolly Gray,” was actually written in 1900 and sets us up for a musical journey down the decades of the twentieth century, culminating in the nineties hit - “Perfect Day.” Enjoy this Millennium Journey.
Gordon Lorenz
