Simplicity and sincerity again are
evident in every bar of this beautiful 19th-century Welsh song. It is a
credit to Perry that he can perform such inspirational music without losing
any of its credibility. His religious beliefs and devotion to family life
are well known and an inspiration on their own. He always included on his
weekly TV show an inspirational song or two, which fit in perfectly with his
own character and personality.
Notes: "The ancient Welsh folk song, "Ar Hyd y
Nos" was formerly sung to an English setting,
"Here beneath a willow weepeth poor Mary Ann."
It is best known outside Wales today by the title
"All Through the Night"
